U14 C CHAMPIONSHIP FINAL
Con Magees, Glenravel 5-06 Kickhams, Creggan 3-06.
The temperatures may have been just over freezing point in Ahoghill tonight, however the performance of both Glenravel & Creggan warmed the hearts of the crowd tonight as both teams played out an entertaining C grade Championship Final.
The Glenravel girls were the dominate team in the opening half, defending well with free flowing attacking football. After a sluggish start Creggan went direct and with 2 quick goals were right back into the game. The green & whites steadied the game and went in at half time 5 points to the good on a 3-3 to 2-1.
The early second half exchanges broke even. Again Con Magees stretched the lead but back came Creggan. Direct running from the loughshore girls and a penalty, neatly converted into the top corner of the net, left only 2 between the teams with 10 minutes to go.
Although the Glenravel support at this stage were getting anxious, 2 converted frees from Aisling & 2 goals from Sarah pushed the game beyond Creggan, who finished with a goal, to leave 6 points the difference at the long whistle.
Well done to both teams for an excellent sporting display, given the bitterly cold conditions. Although beaten the Creggan squad can be proud of their efforts. They never gave in and the Championship winners was in the balance, right up to the last 7 minutes.
Having been on the wrong side of defeats to Creggan too often this year, the Con Magees girls, were the more determined team tonight. Although the green & whites had many strong individual performances this evening, it was after producing their best team display this season, that they deservedly claim the C Championship for 2018.
