Ladies Division 2 League Final


In the end, this was to be quite a comfortable success for Devenish in this division two league decider played at Kinawley.

The Garrison side had a tough enough task on their hands over the first half as neighbours Belcoo managed to put up a sturdy challenge and at the interval the game was still an open affair, just four points separating the teams.

Devenish, however, had already probed their way through the Belcoo rearguard to notch a goal and on the changeover they were to find the weak links once more, this time on a more regular basis and they collected a second half hat trick, which jumped them far ahead of the faltering opposition.

Belcoo did manage to pull a goal back but they were now too far adrift of a Devenish side who were playing with composure and long before the finish, this contest and the silverware destination had been decided.

For Belcoo, Sharon McGovern, Edel McGovern and Donna Maguire all put in hardworking individual contributions and they provided the bulk of their team's scores but in most sectors of the par, once Devenish had broken forward for the early second half goals, the Belcoo game plan was in disarray.

For Devenish, there was to be a sound full back display turned in by Ciaran McHugh with Ciara McGuinness doing well in the half back line. Further up the park for them, Shauna Hamilton was a forceful presence in the middle of the park and in the attack, which created lots of opportunities, Gillian Coyle and Teresa Feely were both much to the fore.

It was the alert Coyle, who notched the first of Devenish's four goal haul, this coming on 10 minutes with Louise Rasdale shooting the team's first point.

Belcoo were to keep in touch with a three point response but later points for Devenish from Teresa Feely and Gillian Coyle served notice that Devenish were shaping up as the stronger side overall.

In the early exchanges of the second half, the Devenish dominance was to be underlined as they swept forward for a two goal spree, Ashling O'Brien and Teresa Feely both on the score sheet and after a short break, Brenda McHugh made it number four.
