Antrim too strong for Tyrone

Ladies Gaelic Football – Ulster Minor League

Antrim 3-17 Tyrone 0-3

In extremely blustering weather at Chapel Hill, Glenavy on Saturday, Antrim Minor ladies proved a cut above Tyrone winning comfortably by 3-17 to 0-3. Playing against a very strong wind in the 1st half, Antrim got off the mark almost immediately with a goal and a point from Caitlin McGuinness. They continued this trend playing fast interchanging football against the wind which Tyrone were incapable of stopping. With Ciara Brown and Lara Dahunsi dominating the midfield Antrim continued to work the ball into the danger area and their forwards took advantage scoring 6 more points from Lara Dahunsi, Ellen Morgan and Caitlin McGuinness and another goal from Molly McAuley to go in 2-7 to 0-2 at the break.

Coming out for the 2nd Half Antrim would have been expected to continue their domination as they were playing with the wind and that proved to be the case with their half back line of Kerry McConville, Eimear Matthews and Maria Hanna dominating possession and being the springboard for their attacks Tyrone just couldnt cope. Antrim scored heavily in the 2nd half courtesy of Caitlin McGuinness, Lara Dahunsi, Nicole Jones and Ellen Morgan along with an own goal from Tyrone.

Antrim now have an away match v Donegal on the 27th April when they must win to progress to the semi final.
