Under 14 Girls: Clonmany 3-0 Cockhill Celtic
Clonmany Shamrocks enjoyed a 3-0 win over Cockhill Celtic
With Cora Mc Colgon., Sarah McCarron and Mia McLaughlin all trying to break through the Clonmany defence, Cockhill showed their capability.
The same was happening on the opposite side with Erin McLaughlin (Fildara), Alana Doherty (Tim) and Aimee Porter. Katelyn McDaid (Hecklar) realised Erin McLaughlin (Fildara) and Katherine Doherty (Lackin) in on goal but with early strong saves from Molly Boyd, Cockhill showed it wasn’t going to be easy. Clonmany 0-0 Cockhill was the score the the break.
Clonmany really showed hunger at the start of the second half, but with goalkeeper, Molly Boyd, and centre half, Karen O’Connor, of Cockhill showing great character, Clonmany couldn’t find a way in.
But after 10 minutes Erin McLaughlin (Fildara) found the back of the net to give Clonmany the lead. Cora McColgon and Michelle Doherty (Shivey) fought hard to get the equaliser but Clonmany increased their lead with a spectacular run from Erin McLaughlin who ended up taking the ball past the keeper and getting her second of the day.
Once again Cockhill tried their hardest to score with Rachel McCallion and Aisling Duffy clearing anything that came their way but Clonmany managed to get in a third. Erin Mc Laughlin (Fildara) took a short corner to Alana Doherty (Tim) who took a tremendous shot that hit the crossbar. Katie Harkin reacted quickly and put the rebound in the back of the net. Jenna Harkin and Breanna Duffy denied Cockhill any entry and Clonmany kept the clean sheet.[adrotate group=”47″]
