Tyrone made it two in a row this year against a determined Cavan side on Sunday in Derrytresk to reach the All Ireland League Division 4 final. The weather was in stark contrast to the previous week but in spite of the warmth there was a strong gusty wind.
There was an explosive start to the game when Cavan landed a point within two minutes after Sinéad Brady slotted from the 45 metre line. Caoimhe Rafferty for Tyrone then went close soon after but shot just wide. Cavan looked stronger and sharper in the early stages in spite of playing into the wind. Tina Reilly fired home from close range to give them a two point lead. There was a fair few fierce tackles going in all over the park resulting in several frees. One of these led to Tyrone’s first point when Aisling Corr sent over following a free. Two minutes later Oonagh O’Neill scored another for Tyrone when Maria Jordan picked out a perfect pass.
Tyrone were now finding their feet and there was a neat bout of interplay between Corr, Shauna Jordan and Niamh McNulty and a well-deserved goal followed. This gave Tyrone the lead on ten minutes and they remained in front from there until the end.
Corr had another free from the side-line and sent the sliotar high over the cross bar. McNulty extended the lead with a beautiful point from open play. Cavan were conceding a lot more frees and Corr again was on target with the next two. Tyrone captain Julie Lagan then picked up the ball from within her own half and launched it goal bound. It deceived the Cavan goal keeper in flight and went straight to the back of the net.
Cavan seemed content to defend for most of this half but Tyrone worked hard at finding ways to break them down. Emma McAliskey and Emma McShane were as always strong and determined while Shauna Jordan put in another battling display which saw her involved in several very physical tussles. It was McAliskey that took the best point of the game and closed the half with Tyrone leading 2:08 to 0:2.
Tyrone knew they would be up against it in the second half with the wind in their faces but events early on settled the destiny of the tie. Maria Jordan scored a screamer of a goal within ten minutes following an exquisite pass from Corr. Corr again set up McNulty to add another point and Tyrone were at this stage totally dominant. Rafferty went on one of her trade mark long runs and scored another point.
Cavan were struggling to take full advantage of the conditions and Tyrone goalkeeper Cara Fitzgerald coped admirably when the Cavan forward succeeded in threatening her goal. Ciara McGready was superb while Aine Donnelly and Jane Canavan came on in a tactical change that secured valued possession for long periods. Faustina Canavan also helped refresh the team and Laura Logue and Leanne O’Neill came off the bench. Cavan scored a goal and two points near the end but the tie was over by this stage. Tyrone will now face Carlow in the final after they defeated Kildare II. The final result Tyrone 3:10 Cavan 1:4. Tyrone Scorers A.
