Termon, who fielded four sets of sisters, Maura and Martina Kelly, Debra and Celine Mc Daid, Caroline and Roseleen Gallagher, Anne, Lisa and Aileen Mc Glynn, were too strong for Clough Chean Fhola at the Burn Road on Friday evening in a trilling junior Ladies football game.
End to end stuff was the order of the day with Karen Feeney, Falcarragh and Termon’s Grainne Mc Cafferty providing the supporters of both teams with some fine moments.
Aoife Ryan, from another famous footballing family, opened Termon’s account on five minutes, only for Catriona Coyle to level matters.
Then in what would be an unique combination on the field of play where mother and daughter Mary and Amy Harkin combined for the former county star Mary to score Falcarragh’s opening goal to put some light between the teams. Termon clawed back a point only to see Lauren Gallagher net for the visitors following some poor Termon defensive work.
Falcarragh, who were now in the ascendency, wasted many chances before the youthful Holly Mc Daid stepped up with a point.
Laura Gallagher replied before Lisa McGlynn put Termon ahead with a fine goal. Holly McDaid provided Grainne McCafferty with two passes which McCafferty converted with style, to leave halftime Termon 2-5 Falcarragh 2-2
First out of the traps in the second half were Termon with Sharon McGlynn adding to Termon account, Holly McDaid and the play-everywhere Karen Feeney exchanged points, before the move of the game commenced. Orla Trearty intercepted a goalbound shot. Her clearance reached Shauna Kelly on the 20 metre line. Kelly interpassed the length of the field before placing a lob over Catriona Mountgomery in the Falcarragh goal . Feeney replied with a minor for Falcarragh before Anne McGlynn put matters beyond Falcarragh’s reach with a goal. Grainne McCafferty and Rosaleen Gallagher extended Termon’s lead before Karen Feeney replied for Falcarragh. In the dying moments Mary Harkin had a minor for Falcarragh when a goal looked possible.
This scoreline did not reflect Falcarragh’s contribution to this game. Indeed in the opening quarter Falcarragh were to the fore in all sections and indeed the management team can take heart from a fine display particularly from Karen Feeney, Catriona Coyle, and Amy Harkin while up front Mary Harkin Edel Curran and Lauren Gallagher tried hard.
Termon, who had a mix of experience and youth, tried hard and once Harry McGlynn’s charges settled and got to grips with the fast running Falcarragh team in the opening quarter Termon’s experience showed. The Kelly sisters Maura and Martina were strong in defence. At midfield Grainne McCafferty and Sharon McLaughlin had a great hour while up front Helen Vickery was very forceful with Holly McDaid, Shauna Kelly and the McGlynn sisters the pick of the rest.
