Match Report

Dungannon Ladies made a perfect start to 2022 when they edged out Omagh in a tough tussle at Mellon Park on Sunday. The game was just two minutes old when a strong carry from Amy McKeown saw the Marley sisters combine with Niamh sending Sarah flying away to score at the posts. Stephanie Lynch added the extras. Later, Omagh took advantage when Emma Johnson was yellow-carded and eventually they cut the deficit with a try. Undeterred, Dungannon hit back and when Amy McKeown created space Niamh Marley raced away 90 metres brushing off several defenders along the way. Half-time, 5-12.
‚ÄčThere was drama at the start of the second half as well when Sarah Marley fielded an Omagh penalty before sending Jo McKeown on a 80 metre run. She was held in the tackle but the alert Niamh Marley took possession and finished the move. Gannon controlled the remainder of the third quarter but a yellow card for Rebecca Todd gave the hosts a decided advantage and they closed the gap with a second try. Good defending by the visitors, notably Laura Saunders, kept the hosts at bay and at the other end Justine Colvine was held up on the line as the game finished 12-17.

Dungannon Team:- T Hutton, S Pogue, G Roper, R Todd, T McCormack, E Johnson, C Wilson, C Moore, L Saunders, N Dunwoody, J McKeown, A McKeown, N Marley, S Marley, S Lynch, L Kelly, J Colvin, S McCaul, M Dunwoody, E Rice.
