Aodh Ruadh under 16s made it two from two with a hard earned win over a determined Saint Eunan's outfit last Tuesday. The first half was evenly fought. Katie O'Brien settled the homesters with a point five minutes in, but Saint Eunan's levelled a couple of minutes later. A Sarah Jane Keon point was also quickly cancelled out. Points from Danielle Gallagher and Katie O'Brien (2) were then answered by a trio of scores from Eunan's to make it all square with the interval looming. A well taken point from Sarah Jane Keon gave the Ernesiders the slimmest of half-time leads. The Letterkenny girls got back to parity just three minutes into the new half. Aoibhínn McGarrigle clipped over two points, but the O'Donnell park outfit continued to battle back and going into the final quarter they pointed to leave the minimum in it. Aodh Ruadh upped the tempo heading to the final whistle and two quick fire identikit goals helped give the hosts a cushion they would maintain to the end. Lucy McGlynn laid off to Niamh Hughes after a blistering run and Hughes released Aoibhínn McGarrigle to blast to the back of the net. Unanswered points from Katie O'Brien and Caitlin McGarrigle and Aoibhínn McGarrigle wrapped up the Aodh Ruadh scoring, leaving them ten points to the good. Saint Eunan's did finish with a good rally of points, but the win went the way of the homesters after an absorbing and sporting contest, Aodh Ruadh 2-11 Saint Eunan's 0-11. Áine Hill had another fine game between the posts, while in front of her Eilish Gallagher was in exceptional defensive form. Caitlin McGarrigle put in another polished display in the middle third. Up front Danielle Gallagher tied things together really well.
