Ahane and Templeglantine took to Doon to play the minor 12 a-side county final on Friday evening. Conditions were cold but dry and both teams hit the ground running with Shauna D’Arcy getting Ahane’s first goal five minutes into the first half. Templeglantine did not let Ahane’s early goal phase them and they got their own goal in the 18th minute of the first half.
Both teams played well and there was savage hooking and blocking from both sides. Both sides traded scores with Ahanes first half points coming from Sarah Cosgrove and Cliodhna Twomey. Templeglantine got their second goal of the half in the twenty fifth minute of the first half which left the half time score as Ahane 1-03 Templeglantine 2-01.
Templeglantine were fastest out of the blocks in the second half and scored their third goal within seconds of the 2nd half starting. Ahane got a point without thirty seconds of their goal and again both teams fought hard throughout the second half. Six minutes in and Ahane scored their second goal of the game coming from the stick of Sarah Cosgrove. Ahane scored three more points but Templeglantine got their fourth goal of the game in the twelfth minute of the second half. Ahane never let their heads drop and scored two more points. Their points in the second half came from Sarah Cosgrove, Éle Madigan, and Ciara Macken. The game ended on a score line of Ahane 2-08 Templeglantine 4-05.
