Senior Men

Senior football returned to Camlough on Sunday afternoon when our senior men entertained Tir na nOg in their first league game of the season and they got off to the best possible start, winning by three points, 1 - 12 to 1 - 9.

The away side opened the scoring in the first minute, with David McCabe equalising for the Shane’s soon after. The sides then swapped points with Mark McCabe getting the Shane’s score before Tir na nOg edged in front from a placed ball. However, from the resulting kick out the Shane’s powered forward and a great flowing move saw Greg McCabe coolly finish to the net to give his side a two point advantage. Connaire Mackin increased his side’s lead to three with a fine long range effort but Tir na nOg hit the final three scores of the half to leave the teams all square at the break, 1 - 3 to 0 - 6.

Connaire Mackin pointed early in the second-half to give the Shane’s the lead with Tir na nOg levelling a few minutes later with a pointed free. Another point for the away side put them one to the good before the Shane’s hit a purple patch, scoring seven points without reply in brilliant fifteen minute spell. Connaire Mackin got the ball rolling with a pointed ‘45 and he followed this up with great long range score, and the Shane’s kept the scoreboard ticking over with points from Mark McCabe (0-2), Paul O’Rourke (0-2) and Ciaran Mackin (0-1). Tir na nOg then got their third point of the half to stop the Shane’s scoring spree but this was quickly cancelled out by a point from the boot of Matthew Girvan. The game was now in injury time and the Shane’s led by six but a late penalty saw Tir na nOg get back to within three but the final whistle sounded soon after and the Shane’s ran out deserved winners, 1 - 12 to 1 - 9.

Next up is a tough assignment away to Clan na Gael.

The club would once again like to thank Camocha/Fiships for their generous club sponsorship and the Hughes brothers, Ciaran and Micheál, were on hand on Sunday to present the senior men with a new set of jerseys.

The club would also like to thank Noel McTaggart for his sponsorship of the match ball for Sunday’s game.

Senior Ladies

Despite putting in a decent performance our senior ladies fell to an eight point defeat against last years beaten county finalists Armagh Harps on Saturday evening, 3 - 9 to 2 - 4. Blaithin Mackin opened the scoring for the Shane’s before the Harps hit three points to lead by two but Ciara Jones put the Shane’s in front again with a well taken goal. Two further points edged the home side in front again before Blaithin Mackin converted from the penalty spot after Niamh Carragher was brought down. The Shane’s looked to be heading into the half-time break a point to the good but two quick fire goals turned the game in the Harps favour and it was the Armagh side who led at the interval, 2 - 5 to 2 - 1.

The home team stretched their advantage to five early in the second-half but two points in row from Blaithin Mackin got the Shane’s back to within three. However, this was as good as it got for the Shane’s as the Harps hit a further 1 - 3 compared to a single point for the Camlough girls courtesy of Blaithin Mackin.

The Shane’s were right in this game until the final ten minutes when Harps eventually pulled away but they can take great heart from their performance ahead of next weeks game at home to Dromahill.
