Bredagh experience enough to see them get past Killygarry

It wasn’t to be for Killygarry minor ladies in their Ulster final on Sunday past as they went down to Bredagh of Down by 5-06 to 1-09. That result was enough to see the Mourne champions claim a 3rd provincial title in 4 years. It was them indeed that got of to the perfect start opening up an 8 point lead with Anna Mc Kee getting 1-03.

The Cavan champions had goalkeeper Joanne Reilly to thank for her heroics in goals as she pulled of a number of fine saves, which seen her picking up the player of the match award. Taking in a 3-04 to 1-02 lead at the break Bredagh were comfortable on the scoreboard, but Killygarry were determined to have some say in the 2nd half and while rocked by the concession of a 4th goal they did rally to reduced it back to a 6 point game.

Bredagh however used their greater experience to see out the contest with Cate Blayney raising a 5th green flag in added time to see the Down champions over the line.

Speaking after the final whistle, Killygarry manager Seamus Lynch remarked that experience from Bredagh was telling but he was very impressed with his own sides performance
