Tyrone Camogs Lose Out to Dublin

By damian Tue 20th Mar

The Tyrone camogie team were defeated in their All Ireland League fixture when they hosted Dublin on Sunday in Cookstown. It was a tentative start by the Tyrone squad and Dublin were quick to capitalise when they scored an excellent point from a tight angle with their full forward J.Hoary after just two minutes. Tyrone’s Aisling Corr then scored a point from a free almost immediately.It was from the resulting puck out that saw the ball quickly passed to Dublin’s Hoary who scored a goal from close range.
Dublin had a five minute spell when they put Tyrone under pressure and Cara Fitzgerald was able to clear the lines with the help of the fearless Ciara McGready. The Tyrone midfield had a strong presence and Corr, Shauna Jordon and Emma McAliskey worked well together and laid of an excellent pass to Caoimhe Rafferty who burst through the Dublin defense to score an impressive goal. Tyrone made a substitution when Rebecca Barker was on and the young Barker made an immediate impact with some strong tackling.There was more pressure from the Tyrone forwards that led to a free and Corr scored again in what was a tricky angle with high winds to contend with.
Tyrone may have had another goal when Shauna Jordan went on a mazy run and blasted a shot that if it were not for the reflexes of the Dublin goal keeper would certainly have scored. Dublin hit back again with a goal and their forwards were showing a lot of pace in an around the Tyrone half of the field. The game ebbed and flowed for long spells with neither team taking control in what was an even contest thus far. There was a baron period of scoring when Tyrones Oonagh Oneill received the ball just outside the rectangle and blasted home with confidence.Tyrone seemed in to in the ascendancy with Aisling Jordan winning most of her one on one confrontations with her marker. However Dublin scored a fortutous goal and they were always able to take their scores with greater ease.
Emma McAliskey then scored an amazing point from inside her own half and Corr was imperiuos with her free taking as usual to add another point and when the whistle blew for half time the sides were all square with Tyrone 2-4 and Dublin 3-1.
Dublin started the second half well and within a five minute spell they dominated and scored two points. Tyrone were still in touch when Maria Jordan scored from the forty five metre line with a superb effort.Dublin moved up a gear and scored two goals and a point within a seven minute spell, although they were a number of Tyrones scoring opportunities that just drifted wide in the strong breeze. The Dublin forwards were impressive and again Aisling Joradan seen a lot of the play in a hard fought section of the field. Niamh Gavin in the back line was strong as usual and Emma McShane was pacey and at times she was too fast for their Dublin opponents.
Dublin scored another goal and two points and were the more clinical in their play.Laura Logue came off the bench and had a strong game. Overall the scoreline did not really reflect the passage of play with Dublin maybe having more potent scorers on the day.
Tyrone will be disappointed with only registering one score in the second half especially considering the possesion they had. The final score Tyrone 2-5 Dublin 6-6. Tyrone Scorers A Corr 0-3, C Rafferty 1-0, O O’Neill 1-0, E McAliskey 0-1, M Jordan 0-1. Dublin Scorers E Gallery 1-4, J Hoary 4-2, L Berkeley 1-0.
