GAA: 'Drumsee girls win battle of the Blitz

By John Campbell

Published 05/09/2007

A hugely successful Fermanagh under-12 7-a-side Blitz has just been hosted by the Heber Mac Mahon's Club in Brookeborough.

In all five teams participated - Brookeborough, Devenish, Aghadrumsee, Newtownbutler and St Patrick's (Donagh).

The matches were played on a round-robin league basis with every team playing a minimum of four games.

The competition provided some superb action - and an insight into the level of under-age talent within the county as a whole.

A very young St Patrick's team gave encouraging performances coupled with some fine displays from Newtownbutler.

Host club Brookeborough were in contention for a final spot, but were eventually denied by Devenish despite a number of excellent saves from their goalkeeper Annette Goodwin.

The final saw Aughadrumsee play Devenish in what proved to be a very evenly-matched contest.

That was hardly surprising as both finalists had played out a drawn game earlier in the competition.

And it was again nip and tuck in the decider with both sides exchanging score for score.

In the end Aughadrumsee emerged victors by two points, both from the boot of team captain Brenda Bannon, while Sarah Jane Flanagan was awarded player of the tournament.

Aughadrumsee were delighted with their win, having been beaten finalists on a number of previous occasions.
