From the Saffron Gael website
Dunloy 1-19 Loughgiel 0-4
Dunloy powered their way to the Under 16 Camogie title when they beat old rivals Loughgiel by 1-19 to 0-4 in Monday evening’s final at Cloughmills. The hot favourite fell behind in the opening minute when the Shamrocks centre-forward Orlagh Laverty pointed a free, but it was to be the only time they trailed and Clannaid O’Kane had them level two minutes later. They hit the front with a point from team captain Cassie McArthur and for the rest of the opening half it was one way traffic as an Aine Magill inspired Cuchullains side took control. Two more pointed frees from Magill put them 0-4 to 0-1 ahead by the sixth minute
Orlath Laverty pulled a point back from a free for Loughgiel on nine minutes but it was to be their last of the first half as Dunloy took control. Cassie McArthur started the run of scores for Dunloy with a point from play before her cousin Aine Magill hit five on the trot, four of them from frees. Midfielder Eimear Johnston grabbed a point before McArthur burst through the middle to score the only goal of the game, and when Magill hit her seventh point of the half the Cuchullains were 1-12 to 0-2 ahead at the break.
With the breeze at their back Loughgiel made a promising start to the second half with points from Cara Connolly and Orlagh Laverty but that was as good is it got for Shamrocks. Dunloy soon settled into their stride and with Aine Magill, Eimear Johnston and McArthur leading the charge they pushed for home. McArthur was to be the dominant force now as she hit four of her team’s scores, Johnston hit two while Magill got the other one as the finished 1-19 to 0-4 to the good.
