Glen retain Senior title

Glen retained the Senior Championship trophy with a 2.08 to 1.02 win over Ballinascreen in then third of the finals held at Owen Beg on Saturday.

Glen started well and led by 1.02 to no score before a spirited response from Ballinascreen saw the teams tied at 1.02 apiece midway through the first half. Ballinascreen battled well in the remaining fifteen minutes but were held scoreless by a resolute Glen defence while the Glen forwards scored another goal and point to lead by 2.03 to 1.02 at half time.

The second half saw Glen notch up a further five points as Caoimhe Moran, Danielle Kivlehan, Breena O’Loughlin and Dervla Mc Master exerted their influence to see Glen run out winners on a scoreline of Glen 2.08 Ballinascreen 1.02.

Glen now go forward to represent Derry in the Ulster Club Intermediate championship.
