Dunloy fought back to earn a draw in the 1993 final

1993 Antrim Senior Camogie Final

Back in 1993 Loughgiel and Dunloy met in the final of the Senior Camogie Championship in Cushendall, and what a game it was. After a great battle the two sides could not be separated and they had to come back the following week where once again a large crowd turned up to see another top class game.

Final ends in stalemate

Loughgiel 3-5 Dunloy 3-5

On a day when Loughgiel were bidding for their twelfth Senior title, Mary Connolly was bidding for her seventh winners medal.

Leading by ten points after just ten minutes play Loughgiel appeared to be in cruise control as Grace McMullan, Rosie Butler, Christine McGaughey and Maura McGaughey all hit the Dunloy net.  However the Cuchullains girls staged a great fightback and goals from Sinead McMullan and Oonagh Elliott helped them stage a great fightback to earn a second bite of the cherry.

Loughgiel scorers – Grace McMullan 0-4; Rosie Butler 1-1; Christine McGaughey 1-0; Maura McGoran 1-0.

Dunloy scorers – Sinead McMullan 1-4;  Oonagh Elliott 1-2; Majella McMullan 0-1; Brenda McGrath 0-1.

Tomorrow we will carry pics and report from the replay
