Dungannon scored a shock 2-1 away win over Ballymoney  last night to boost their chances of a first ever Denman Ulster Shield semi-final place.

Money had won their first two pool matches but now they face a battle to progress to the last four after being joined by Dungannon and Queen’s at the top of the table on six points.

The Tyrone girls’ last group match is against Portadown, who have yet to secure a point, while Money must play the students, who have a maximum return from their opening two matches.

Samantha Kelly put Dungannon ahead last night in the 50th minute and, after an equaliser from Bridget Cleland, Rosalind Graham grabbed the winner with five minutes left.

Queen’s beat Portadown 5-1 with goals from Tory Hastings, Anna Hutchinson, Julie Morrow, Stef McCullough and Rachael Henderson while holders Randalstown were 3-1 winners over Banbridge in the other pool, with Grace Palmer, who got two, being joined by Katherine McDowell on the scoresheet.
