Eglish and Clonduff to do it again

It was a windy and blustery Sunday afternoon that welcomed Eglish and Clonduff camogs for the Ulster Intermediate camogie championship final in Granemore Co Armagh.
Eglish had the wind in their favour in the first half and Ciara Donnelly took full advantage after three minutes to register Eglish first point. There was a lot of scrappy play in and around the middle of the park as both teams took time to settle. There were a few wides for Eglish before Donnelly burst through the Clonduff defence to score an irresistible goal in the 22nd minute. Clonduff were finding it hard to get out of their own half as the wind failed to relent. It wasn’t until the 25th minute that they registered their first score when Sara Louise Carr slotted over from a free. Eglish went straight up the other end and within two minutes Donnelly added a point and a goal with two minutes to end the half.
Half Time Eglish 2-2 Clonduff 0-1
The wind had not abated as both teams started the 2nd half. Clonduffs Carr rifled home a goal with only two minutes gone. Another series of wides wasn’t helped by the conditions before Karen Haughey added another point for Clonduff. The play continued to be scrappy and Eglish defended stoutly as the came under serious pressure. Paula Gribben added another point for Clonduff.
The next five minutes was a tense affair with both teams going for everything. Eglish had a few chances to score at the other end but the wind was playing a major part in the game as the wide count just increased. Clonduff added another point with 12 minutes to go to take it to a single point game. Eglish had to defend really deep as Clonduff pressured again and again. The game was well into injury time when Lisa McPolin drew Clonduff level.
The game ended Eglish 2-2 Clonduff 1-5.
A fair result in the end for both teams and the replay will be next Sunday with the venue yet to be confirmed
