After suffering defeat to Slaughtneil in last year's county final, the Glen girls made sure to make it second time lucky in a point for point game on Sunday afternoon in Owenbeg. 

DERRY U14 A CAMOGIE SHIELD FINAL
Glen 1-6
Slaughtneil 2-2
Glen got off to a good start with points from Sinead Porter and Catherine McKenna but conceded a goal at the other end. Both teams swapped further points and Glen then brought it back to a draw with a goal from Cara Mallon. Slaughtneil answered with a further goal and Glen scored two points and trailed by the bare minimum at half time. 

Glen came out strong in the second half with two Catherine McKenna points, leaving them a point ahead with 15 minutes to go.

Glen defended ferociously for the next 15 minutes and came out victorious in the end, which meant captain, Erin Scullion, would lift the cup for Glen. 

Both teams put on an excellent display and the game was a brilliant advertisement for Derry camogie.
