By damian Sun 11th Mar

The Tyrone camogie team lost the second league match of the season in their All Ireland  fixture against Carlow on Sunday in Moortown. Carlow were first to strike and register a point after five minutes when Olivia McDonald scored. Tyrone had their fair share of possesion early on and immediately hit back when Caoimhe Rafferty scored from open play when receiving  a puck out from Cara Fitzgerald. Carlow scored two points in as many minutes when Ciara Quirke cooly slotted the ball over the bar.
It was tit for tat as Tyrones Ciara Rocks impressed with her pass to Rafferty who dispatched the ball for another point to take her points total to two. Carlow again scored another two points in quick succession from a free and open play respectively. Tyrones captain Aisling Corr then scored from a free awarded for a foul on Rafferty when she looked certain to have a crack at a goal.For the next five minutes Carlow showed their physical side and had numerous attempts on goal and but for the  superb defence of Catherine Hannah who on many occasions cleared the Tyrone lines in what looked a nervy time for the home side. Carlow again scored two in as many minutes to move ahead by four points with twenty minutes gone.
The Tyrone side seemed to be out of sorts but there was still some moments of superb play from Emma McAliskey and Cara Fitzgerald. Tyrone made a substitution when Siobhan Hughes came on and she was able to soak up a lot of the loose balls to keep the Carlow at bay. There were a few wides for Tyrone which would have narrowed the gap but a free was taken and scored by the impressive Corr who was showing her leadership qualities in all parts of the field. The half finished Tyrone 0-4 to Carlows 0-7. The Carlow team started the second half with strength , derermination and they were very clinical in front of goals and after twelve minutes of the second half had added a goal and three points. In the physical encounter Emma Fitzgerald was taken off and replaced by Cathy Jordan. Carlow scored in quick succession again as they did in the first half finding the back of the net twice. Tyrone had lots of the play for a ten minute period and the team looked to have found some rythme. Aisling and Shauna Jordan took a lot of play showing a high quality of camogie and Ciara McGready had a solid performance in the back line. Cathy Jordan then added a clinical goal towards the end of the game. There was signs in the later period of the second half that was positive for the Tyrone camogs but on the day they were beaten by a good strong Carlow side. The final score. Tyrone 1-5 Carlow 3-11.
