Having exited the Intermediate Championship a week earlier Corduff returned to league action at the weekend away to Drumhowan on Saturday. In what was certainly a game of two halves Drumhowan dominated the first half going ahead 0-8 to 0-5 at the interval. From the restart Corduff began to narrow the margin and a penalty put them ahead and in the driving seat. This momentum stayed with Corduff and they were back to winning ways once again on a full time score of 2-11 to 0-13 and by doing so earned two more valuable league points. This week senior action continues in Corduff when they host Doohamlet. Throw-in at 12 noon. Please support.
On Saturday last our U14s led by their inspirational captain Sadhbh Cassidy played in the Division 3 Championship Final against Aghabog in Cremartin. In what was a very low scoring first quarter Corduff opened the scoring with a point in the first minute. Both sides registered a tally of wides . However the momentum was with the Corduff girls in the second quarter with Elena McEnaney dominating the scoreboard pushing Corduff ahead 1-3 to 0-4 at the interval.
Corduff continued to dominate the opening exchanges in the second half and a smashing goal from Annie Brennan put Corduff further ahead. Aghabog came back into the game narrowing the margin and going ahead at full time and in doing so snatched the victory from Corduff. Disappointment is always a bitter pill to swallow but this group of girls and management can hold their heads high after putting in such commitment and performances all season. The team was as follows Ciara Farrelly, Lorna Hand, Haoise Cunningham, Shannon Duffy, Emily Hegarty, Abbie Finegan, Sadhbh Cassidy, Georgia Smith, Abbey McGivney, Chloe Finnegan, Leona Hill, Annie Brennan, Elena McEnaney, Kayla Hand and Leah Cooney. Thanks to management Pete Cassidy, Declan Kernan and Dermot Hand for their wonderful work with this team all season and also to the first aiders Mary Finegan and Mary Callan.
After a break the Senior Ladies were in action last Saturday against O’Neills. Both teams took a while to settle down with Corduff opening the scoring with a goal from Emma Byrne. O’Neills quickly followed and dominated the scoring going ahead 1-8 to 1-3 at the interval. Corduff put in a big performance and made a comeback in the second half narrowing the margin and going level by the final whistle.
