Granemore set for Loughgiel challenge

IT’S been a busy period for the women of Granemore with the club competing on two fronts, and on Saturday their camogs will travel to face Loughgiel in the Ulster Junior A first round (1pm).

They made it two in-a-row in Amragh with a typically hard-fought win over neighbours Ballymacnab.

Granemore really had to battle for it though, trailing 0-5 to 0-1 early on in what was a low-scoring encounter.

However, Rachel Merry hit seven points in all to turn things around with Laura Carr and Corinna Doyle also on target in the 0-11 to 0-9 win.

Loughgiel’s first string are in Antrim final action against Ballycastle this weekend, and their seconds will be hoping to add to a weekend to remember.

They won county honours with a comfortable 1-16 to 0-9 win over Cargin.

They led 1-7 to 0-5 at the break, Carlina Sullivan with their goal, and although Dunloy started the second half well, the Shamrocks were never really in bother.

Finvola McVeigh captains the side from full-back while Anna McKillop is another key attacker.

In the Junior B semi-final, Armagh’s Crossmaglen have home advantage against Tyrone’s Derrylaughan on Saturday (1pm).
