Match Report Aontroim v Tír Eoghain U14 Championship
On a beautiful spring day our young saffrons travelled to Augher to take on Tyrone in what was a must win match for Aontroim. From the start our young ladies were on the front foot and an early free followed by a well taken goal from Maria O’Neill put Aontroim up 1-1 v 0-0. The next passage of play saw Aontroim miss several great opportunities to score but failed to take any. Tyrone then had a quality five minutes in attack but thanks to a robust Aontroim defence they only managed to score a single point. Two more points from Aimee Meenan and Carla McKenna made the score 1-3 v 0-1 at the break.
After the break the Aontroim ladies started sharply with 1-1 from Maria O’Neill sandwiched in between two well taken Niamh McNama points had the score at 2-6 v 0-2. At this level of football, you can’t take your foot off the gas and that’s what Aontroim did as Tyrone came into the game with two quick points followed by an unstoppable goal. The game was now very much in the balance at 2-6 v 1-4. Another two points from Niamh McNama made it 2-8 v 1-4 but Tyrone were not finished there, another well taken goal and it was back to a 4-point game. Some super defending and goalkeeping from our young ladies saw us over the line to claim a great victory away to Tyrone! Up next Donegal at home.
Final Score Aontroim 2-8 v 2-4 Tír Eoghain
