The Bridie McMenamin Post Primary Championship final was played on Wednesday evening in glorious sunshine at Derrylaughan. Edendork and Eglish had previously played out a draw in the league and the game certainly lived up to expectations for the huge crowd in attendance. This age group plays two 20 minute halves.
It was end to end for the first five minutes of the game with neither team able to break the deadlock. There were a few goal mouth scrambles from both sides and the defences were certainly on top. It was on the seven minute mark that the defending champions Eglish took an excellent point from a 45 metre free from Keeley Fay. A solitary point separated the teams but the skill level from both sides was certainly even. Bronagh Mahoon for Edendork then sent a fine effort to the back of the net to take the lead on the twelve minute mark. It could have been two were it not for some strong Eglish defending. Eglish the broke clear but only managed a narrow wide with five minutes remaining. The final minutes of the game was frantic and fast paced and as the whistle blew the score read Edendork 1-0 Eglish 0-1.
Eglish added another wide to their tally shortly after the restart and the intensity of the game was relentless. Both teams pressed and it was Mahoon for Edendork that extended their lead with eight minutes of the half gone with a fine point. The next five minutes again was end to end with both defences on top before Olivia Farley for Eglish brought the side level. Then almost immediately Mahoon scored an absolute screamer of a goal that would have graced any final to retake the lead for Edendork. From the resulting restart Farley brought the sides level again when she added her second goal of the game with five minutes remaining. A final push from Edendork gave Eimear Conway the goal that would clinch one of the most entertaining finals seen in years.
Hugh McCaffery, son in law of Bridie McManamin, presented the winning Bridie mcMenamin shield to the winning captain Eva Corr. Eva thanked her team and management for all their hard work. A very gracious speech from Eglish captain Eve Hughes received a warm round of applause.
Lara Devlin from Edendork was presented with a crested T shirt for Player of the final by County treasurer Josephine McKeown.
Tyrone county board would like to thank Derrylaughan for the use of their facilities, Hugh McCaffery, all the supporters and especially young Orla Donnelly for refereeing the final
