It was a disappointing day for Tyrone Ladies in Round Two of the Tesco National Football League in Augher on Sunday afternoon as they were defeated by Laois by 2-8 to 1-9. The Red Hand girls will feel that they really should have taken something from this game. Despite looking the sharpest of the two teams and taking a two point lead once again poor defending cost Tyrone dearly conceding two goals in the first 8 minutes. However, they continued to work hard and Gemma Begley scored a Tyrone goal to keep the margin to the minimum with Laois leading 2-5 to 1-7 at half-time.

In the second-half Tyrone’s defensive performance was much improved which limited Laois to three points. However, the Red Hand’s poor shooting form continued as they failed to convert when in scoring positions and they recorded only two points in the half, one each from Dearbhala McCallan and Aisling O’Kane. A goal from Jolene Donnelly was disallowed for square ball and there were two missed goal chances in the dying minutes which would have snatched victory but Laois notched up their second win of the League while Tyrone remain winless and face the prospect of the long trip to Cork next Sunday to face the current All-Ireland Champions.
Tyrone scorers: Gemma Begley 1-2; Cathy Donnelly 0-2; Mary Cassidy 0-1; Alanna McShane 0-1; Dearbhala McCallan 0-2; Aisling O’Kane 0-1
