Termon’s Ladies Sister act propels them to victory
Termon fielded an astonishing four sets of sisters in this win over Cloch Cheann Fhaola .
Not to be out-done in the statistics – the visitors fielded two mother and daughter combinations of their own.
Maura and Martina Kelly, Debra and Celine McDaid, Caroline and Roseleen Gallagher, Anne, Lisa and Aileen McGlynn were too strong for Clough Chean Fhola at the Burn Road on Friday evening in a trilling junior Ladies football game. End to end stuff was the order of the day with Karen Feeney Cloch Cheann Fhaola’s and Termon’s Grainne Mc Cafferty providing the supporters of both teams with some fine moments.
Aoife Ryan from another famous footballing family opened Termon’s account on five minutes, only for Catriona Coyle to level matters.
Then in what would be an unique combination on the field of play where mother and daughter Mary and Amy Harkin combined for the former county star Mary to score Cloch Cheann Fhaola ‘s opening goal to put some light between the teams. Termon clawed back a point only to see Lauren Gallagher net for the visitors following some poor Termon defensive work. Cloch Cheann Fhaola who were now in the ascendency wasted many chances before up stepped the youthful Holly Mc Daid. with a point.
Laura Gallagher replied before Lisa Mc Glynn put Termon ahead with a fine goal. Holly Mc Daid provided Grainne Mc Cafferty with two passes which Mc Cafferty converted with style, to leave halftime Termon 2–5 Falcarragh 2–2
First out of the traps were Termon in the second half with Sharon Mc Glynn adding to Termon account, Holly Mc Daid and the play everywhere Karen Feeney exchanged points , before the move of the game commenced. Orla Trearty intercepted a goal bound shot. Her clearance reached Shauna Kelly on the twenty metre line. Kelly inter passed the length of the field before placing a lob over Catriona Mountgomery in the Cloch Cheann Fhaola goal . Feeney replied with a minor for Falcarragh before Anne mc Glynn put matters beyond Falcarragh’s reach with a goal. Grainne Mc Cafferty and Roseleen Gallagher extended Termon lead before Karen Feeney replied for Falcarragh. In the dying moments Mary Harkin had a minor for Falcarragh when a goal looked possible to leave the final score Termon 4–13 Falcarragh 2–6
This score line did not reflect Cloch Cheann Fhaola ‘s contribution to this game. Indeed in the opening quarter Cloch Cheann Fhaola were to the fore in all sections and indeed the management team can take heart from a fine display particularly from Karen Feeney, Catriona Coyle, and Amy Harkin while up front Mary Harkin Edel Curran and Lauren Gallagher tried hard.
Termon who had a mix of experience and youth tried hard and once Harry Mc Glynn’s charges settled and got to grips with the fast running Falcarragh team in the opening quarter Termon’ s experience showed. The Kelly sisters Maura and Martina were strong in defence. At midfield Grainne Mc cafferty and Sharon Mc Laughlin had a great hour while up front Helen Vickery was very forceful with Holly Mc Daid, Shauna Kelly and the Mc Glynn sisters the pick of the rest.
