Senior Ladies

It was disappointment for our senior ladies on Saturday night as they bowed out of the championship at the semi-final stage, losing by two points to Armagh Harps, 3 - 9 to 4 - 4.

The sides swapped a point apiece in the opening exchanges with Blaithin Mackin getting the Shane’s score before a great ball from Moya Feehan put Aimee Mackin through on goal and she made no mistake from close range. Mackin netted her second goal soon after to give her side a six point advantage just ahead of the first-half water break. Harps replied with their second point just after the water break to get back to with five and they almost made it a two point game but Sorcha McDonnell made a brilliant goal-line block to prevent a certain goal. Blaithin Mackin then pointed for the Shane’s to restore their six point lead but a goal and two points in a five minute spell left the Harps just one in arrears before Aoibheann Jones fired over to give the Shane’s a two point half-time lead, 2 - 3 to 1 - 4.

Harps made a great start to the second-half and two quick points had them back on level terms but it took another ten minutes for the next score to arrive and when it came along it was a Harps goal to put them ahead for the first time in the game. They followed this up with a further goal and two points to give them a substantial eight point lead but a Blathin Mackin penalty following a foul on Abbie McVerry gave the Shanes a much needed lift and got them back to within five. However, the Harps replied almost immediately with their ninth point of the game to put them six to the good with less than five minutes left on the clock but the Shane’s were determined to fight right until the end. An Aoibheann Jones goal set up a grand stand finish and the Shane’s threw everything at the Harps in the closing minutes but despite their best efforts they only managed to register another point courtesy of Rachel McCabe to leave the final score 3 - 9 to 4 - 4 in favour of Armagh Harps.

Senior Men

Our senior men travelled to Sarsfields on Saturday evening for the next league game but it proved to be a fruitless journey as they were defeated by seven points, 1 - 9 to 0 - 5.

It proved to be a very low scoring and non-eventful first-half as Sarsfields went into the half-time break leading by just two points, 0 - 4 to 0 - 2. 

The first fifteen minutes of the second-half continued in the same vein but the Shane’s had reduced the deficit to to just a single point by the water break, 0 - 5 to 0 - 4 However, it was Sarsfields who finished the game the stronger side and they scored a further 1 - 4 to just a single Shane’s point to run out winners, 1 - 9 to 0 - 5.

U17.5 Boys

Our U17.5 boys amalgamation of Patrick Rankins are through to the championship semi-final following a great fourteen point win away to Tullysaran last Monday night, 7 - 10 to 2 - 11. The lads have been playing some good football over the past few weeks and Monday’s game was undoubtedly one of their performances to date. They return to championship action on Monday night, 31st August @ 6.45pm against Madden in Madden. The game will be played to a finish on the night with extra-time and penalties if necessary.

U16 Girls

Our U16 girls are through to the championship final following a fourteen point win over Middletown in Mullabrack on Monday night, 6 - 8 to 3 - 3.

The opening half of the game was a very closely fought affair with Middletown going into the half-time break leading by three points, 1 - 3 to 0 - 3.

Whatever the Shane’s management said at half-time certainly had the desired effect as the girls came out and started the second-half on fire. They went on to completely dominate the remainder of the game, scoring a further 3 - 5 to Middletown’s 2 - 0 to qualify for the championship final.

The final has been scheduled for next Sunday, 6th September against Granemore with a time and venue still to be confirmed. Please keep an eye on our social media for further details.
