Inagh-Kilnamona 2-14 Truagh 2-6
The county champions were too strong for Truagh this evening pulling away in the second half to have the game secured with 10 minutes remaining.
With two early frees & a point from play Inagh-Kilnamona raced into a three point lead early in the game. Truagh, through Aine O’Loughlin, stayed in the game with two points, one from play & the other a free. However Inagh-Kilnamona squeezed two unanswered scores between O’Loughlins points. The teams exchanged points nearing half time, both from play, Truagh’s a well taken point by O’Loughlin after a long free in from Eimear Kelly, to leave the half time score 0-3 v 0-6 in favour of the hosts.
Inagh-Kilnamona proved too strong for Truagh in the second half, even after Truagh had the best possible start with a well taken handpassed goal by Hannah Horgan, after another long delivery from Kelly. Horgan was made to work for the score but did well to evade the defenders to score. Inagh-Kilnamona answered the early questions asked almost immediately, and went on to score 2-2 without reply. O’Loughlin added another pointed free 10mins in. Another brace of points from InKil extended their lead to ten points mid way through the half. Truagh however finished well with a goal from Louise Egan and two points from Kelly, one from play and a 45′ shot on goal that screamed over the bar.
