Antrim’s Maeve Kelly

Ulster Under 16 Camogie Championship

Antrim and Derry will have to meet again in the Ulster Under 16 Camogie Championship after they could not be separated at Greenlough last night. Antrim appeared to be well on the way to victory during the opening half as Maeve Kelly and Caitlin Crawford were dominating play, but a bad shoulder injury to Crawford saw her have to be stretchered off the field. Aine Graham stepped into the breach and played very well scoring 2-1 to help the Saffrons to a 3-4 to 2-4 half time lead.

The second half was a much lower scoring affair for the young Saffrons with Maura Downey scoring all their points, but Derry clawed their way back to bring the game to extra time.

It was one point apiece at the end of the first half of extra time and when Antrim took the lead early in the second half it appeared they had done enough to advance. They had probably been too insistent on going for goals during this period when easy points were there for the taking, but the one point lead seemed to be enough until Derry grabbed a late equaliser from a free deep into injury time to earn a replay.

Antrim scorers were: Aine Graham 2:01, Maura Downey 0:05, Maeve Kelly 1:02, Laura Mc Aleese 0:01, Erin Traynor 0:01
