Our senior ladies were crowned senior league winners on Saturday night following their five point win over Carrickcruppen in the Shane’s, 1 - 15 to 1 - 10, in what was a very entertaining game.

Carrickcruppen made the better start and with almost ten minutes on the clock they led 1 - 2 to no score before Aimee Mackin opened the Shane’s account with their first point of the game. Carrickcruppen replied almost immediately with another point to restore their five point advantage with Aimee Mackin hitting two points in a row to leave just three between them. The away side then scored a further two points to keep them out in front but another brace from Aimee Mackin kept the home side in touch with half-time fast approaching but it was Carrickcruppen who got the last point of the first-half to lead by four at the break, 1 - 6 to 0 - 5.
 
The Shane’s made a blistering start to the second-half and in the opening ten minutes Aimee Mackin slotted over four unanswered points to tie the game before the same player fielded a high ball, turned her marker and fired the ball to the net, and the Shane’s led for the first time. However, Carrickcruppen responded in great fashion and they got the next three points to tie the contest again at 1 - 9 apiece, and the game was right back in the melting pot. An Aimee Mackin point restored then Shane’s lead and Sorcha McDonnell followed this up with a great long effort to put them two to the good with less than fifteen left on the clock. The Shane’s girls sensed victory at this stage and led by the brilliant team captain Louise Kenny, they pushed for home and Blaithin Mackin increased their advantage to three with a well taken score. Young Rachel McCabe raised another white flag soon after and Aimee Mackin tagged on another point to leave her side five in front with time running out. Carrickcruppen reduced the deficit to just four with their tenth point of the game and they really piled on the pressure at this stage in an attempt to get back in the game but the Shane’s keeper, Brianna Mathers, and her entire defensive unit were superb as they repelled every Carrickcruppen attack as if their lives depended on it. Their efforts were rewarded as Aimee Mackin fired over the last point of the game to leave the Shane’s winners on a score-line of 1 - 15 to 1 - 10 and see them crowned senior league champions for 2020.
