first_imgGERALDINE McLaughlin hit two goals as Donegal were crowned Ulster Senior Ladies champions for the first time ever at Clones this afternoon.While the Termon player was the star of the show once again, it was the outstanding performances of every other player on the pitch today which got Donegal over the line 2-12 to 1-10.Captain Katy Herron was in superb form, playing so well she was hit several times off the ball….and Yvonne McMonagle and Amber Barrett were wonderful all day in the pouring rain. But this was a team performance, from every defender through midfield to the front.Donegal led by three points, 0-07 to 0-03, after a cagey first half played in dreadful conditions.The girls showed amazing grit and determination in a tough second half against some baffling referee decisions.Geraldine McLaughlin bagged a goal early on to stretch the Donegal lead to seven points. But Monaghan were awarded a dubious penalty shortly afterwards and you could see it hit the Donegal girls.That downer didn’t last long as Donegal put their heads up and kept going again.And mid-way through the first half Geraldine McLaughlin disposed the Monaghan keeper to fist the ball to the net.Amber and Geraldine rattled off more points before Monaghan began a bit of a comeback.But it was all too late for the Farney girls. Ulster have new Champions. Donegal are Ulster Champions for the first time.Manager Davy McLaughlin can be very proud of his incredible work with this team.SUPER DONEGAL LADIES CROWNED ULSTER SENIOR FOOTBALL CHAMPIONS FOR THE FIRST TIME was last modified: July 26th, 2015 by John2Share this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:DonealdonegalFootballLadiesMonaghanUlsterlast_img
