McMullan nets spot in semi-final

Grace-ful win for Coleraine in camogie championship

Grace McMullan bagged two goals for Coleraine


Coleraine 2-11 Banagher 1-11
Eoghan Rua come out in top to a disappointed Banagher side in a really tight and exciting game under Banagher's impressive new lights on Thursday evening to book their place in Sunday's semi-draw. 

Banagher won the toss and elected to play against the strong breeze in the first half. Right from the throw in, Eoghan Rua took the game to Banagher and with the aid of the wind took an early lead, scoring three unanswered points.

To Banagher's credit, they worked their way in to the game and got on the score board themselves with two points from Shannon O'Connor.

It was the visitors who pulled away, with a couple of well-taken Grace McMullan goals.  Both teams exchanged scores, but Coleraine went in to the beak with a nice lead of 2-8 to 0-7.

The second half started much the same, but Banagher, with the help of Cara Farren's performance and the strong breeze, started to eat in to Eoghan Rua lead and were rewarded with a goal of their own.

The teams battled hard but it was Eoghan Rua that managed to tag on another few points to pull clear and book their semi-final spot.

Eoghan Rua's back line was solid, Sorcha Duggan, Meabh Duffy, Megan Kerr, Eilis McNamee playing well together with Louise McIntyre sure in goals. Up front Shauna Doherty and Grace McMullan continue to impress.

COLERAINE SCORERS: Shauna Doherty (0-6), Grace McMullan (2-0), Megan Kerr, Rosanna McAleese (0-2 each) and Eve Lundy (0-1)
