Senior Camogie League.
Truagh 4 -10
Castleblayney 2 -2
Castleblayney went under in an exciting tight marking encounter in the second last round of the Senior League in St. Mellans Park on Tuesday evening last, played in miserable weather conditions Truagh stepped up to the mark to gain another two points in the League when the Castleblayney side were minus a few of their regulars.
The north siders got off to a good start when they registered two goals and a point without reply coming from Joanne Meehan and Mairead Mc. Carron. Castleblayney took longer to settle in and Elaine Mc. Kernan opened the scoring for her side in the 22nd minute when she cut through the Truagh defence to put a goal and a point on the scoreboard in the space of two minutes.
Siobhan Mc. Kenna and Yvonne Connell stretched the lead for Truagh with a further two points to put the side five ahead at the break.
Truagh’s Orla Mc. Meel once again was on target when she converted a free 5 mins from throw in, Castleblayney narrowed the deficit when their scoring ace Elaine Mc. Kernan got one past the Truagh goalie a minute later. Truagh’s free taker Mc. Meel added a further point before Meabh Mc. Carron got her stick to the sliother in a scrambled affair in the ‘Blayney goalmouth to put the Gaels in a comfortable position.
Truagh took control for the next period when they added a further four points from Orla Mc. Meel, Siobhan Mc. Kenna, and Yvonne Connell.
Emma Mc. Kenna delivered the final score for the Faugh’s when she got one over the bar before Truagh’s Nicola Treanor spotted a space in the goalmouth to raise the green flag and Orla Mc. Meel finished with a converted free.
