Antrim Camogie League – Division 1
Dunloy 6-12 Cushendall 2-8
Four goals from full forward Cassie McArthur steered Dunloy to victory over Cushendall in Tuesday evening’s Division 1 game at Pearse Park. Dunloy dominated for most of the game, though Cushendall had a real purple patch early in the second half when they scored 2-4 without reply. However they were chasing the game by this stage and Dunloy were never really threatened.
The visitors hit the first two scores inside a minute through Siobhan McKillop and LauraMcMullan but they would hit one more for the remainder of the first half Dunloy hit top gear. Points from the two corner forward Miachaela Elliott and Aine Magill were followed by a goal from full forward Cassie McArthur. Aine Magill and her cousin Cassie McArthur made it three goals in a row and by half time they were 4-8 to 0-3 clear, Cushendall’s other point coming from Sine Woodhouse.
Cushendall’s purple patch at the start of the second half brought them back into the game. It started with points from Siobhan McKillop, Monique O’Boyle Ellen Leech, followed by goals from Siobhan McKillop and Sinead Cosgrove, and to top it all off Caoimhe O’Hara added another point.
The gap that was seventeen was now down to seven, but that was as good as it got as the Cuchullains hit their stride again and a Caoimhe Molloy point, plus another McArthur goal and one from Orlagh O’Neill, slammed the door firmly shut. Ellen Leech hit the visitors’ last point before Caoimhe Molloy ended it all with three Dunloy points in a row to secure two more league points
