Kilrea 4-10 Ballinderry 1-11

Recently crowned league champions Kilrea ran out impressive winners over Ballinderry in Thursday's exciting intermediate camogie championship opener in Bellaghy.

Both teams looked evenly enough matched in the opening quarter with scores exchanged at either end.

Despite Kilrea having the lead throughout, the Ballinderry girls looked to gain the upper hand in the third quarter when they closed to a five-point gap.

Kilrea had to take control again and never looked back to pull away with an eventual eight point victory seeing the Pearse Park girls make their way to the semis.

In a hotly contested and entertaining game, both teams displayed great skill and determination throughout.

Kilrea looked the hungrier, sharper and more determined team with an impressive work ethic. Their defence, mid and forward lines all worked tirelessly and all featured throughout.  Both teams deserve credit for a high quality match.
