BRID McGinty was delighted to see her Lagan Harps side respond the way she wanted in Wednesday night’s Glencar Cup final.
Lagan overcame Glenree United 8-4 in an absorbing contest at The Diamond Park, just two weeks after Glenree shocked Lagan with a 5-1 beating in the Donegal Women’s League.
Glenree had an early warning shot as Denise Doherty gave them the lead inside the opening minute, but hat-tricks by Caroline Gallagher and Nakita Burke brought glory to Lagan.
“Glenree deserved that win two weeks ago when they beat us 5-1 and when they hit us within a minute here I thought: ‘Not a repeat of the League game’,” McGinty told Donegal Sport Hub.
“We settled down, we got the momentum, we got the ball on the ground and we started to pass it – that’s what we believe in.”
Lagan are also the fore-runners for the Women’s League title and they meet Greencastle FC in next Saturday’s Ulster Cup final at Aileach.
McGinty said: “Our Under-16s have also won the League and they’re going for the Donegal and Ulster Cups – fingers crossed we could have two trebles at the end of the year.”
