26/04/09: Douglas 1-16 Ballygarvan 1-08
(Senior "A" Camogie League)
The first half was a low scoring affair with Douglas two points behind on a scoreline of 4 points to 1-3 at half-time. The Douglas defence had to be alert as Ballygarvan were playing with the aid of the wind. Jessica Cavanagh in goal made some good saves while Maura O’Donovan at full back was very capable and Sarah O’Regan made some vital interceptions. Catriona Mackey scoring 3 points (2 from frees) and the other point from Aileen O’Donovan.

Maria Harkin was on song for Douglas scoring two goals while Julia White and Amanda O’Regan also found the net. The semi-final is fixed for next Monday evening.
With the pitch on Castle Road unplayable due to poor weather, the league semi-final between Douglas and St. Catherine's was switched to Conna. Douglas played with the aid of the breeze in the opening half but were unable to capitalise and were two points down at the interval. Despite delivering an impressive second half performance Douglas were eclipsed on a scoreline of 1-11 to 1-08. The Camogie players and management can now look forward to a well deserved winter break.
