Goals were the order of the day for Clonaghadoo last Tuesday in O'Moore Park, as they hit six to see of the challenge of a brave Ballyadams side in the girls Division 3 final.

Aoibheann Grehan opened the scoring when she struck for a goal from a free in the third minute, although defences were on top for much of the rest of the half, with scores hard to come by.

Clonaghadoo goalkeeper Emily Hughes made a brilliant save to deny Audrey Byrne a goal, and Ballyadams eventually drew level in the 13th minute when Grace Moore rifled a brilliant goal to the top corner of the net.

Clonaghadoo finished the half strongly, however, with Rebecca Bagnall to the fore as she hit two goals to see them lead 3-0 to 1-0 at the break.

Aoibheann Grehan added a point on the restart as Clonaghadoo showed they meant business, and when Aerin Ryle got their fourth goal three minutes into the second half, Ballyadams had a mountain to climb.

Another Clonagahdoo goal pushed them even further ahead, but Ballyadams showed they weren't going to go down without a fight when they hit two points in a minute, as they gave their supporters something to cheer.

Clonaghadoo finished out the game strongly, however, as Aoife Dunne supplied their sixth goal, and two points from Aoibheann Grehan wrapped up a well-deserved Division 3 title for the Clonaghadoo girls.
