The Óg Spórt U15 Provincial Final was held last Saturday, September 2nd, in Killybegs, Donegal.
This event brings together the 7 a-side champions from each county in Ulster to compete in this prestigious annual blitz competition. With ideal conditions the day developed into a very entertaining and exciting event for both players and spectators with a superb standard of skills on show.
Lavey of Derry brought the Provincial title to the Oak Leaf county this year by defeating the Tyrone champions Carrickmore by 1-11 to 2-5 in the final. Both finalists had difficult semi-finals with Lavey defeating Emyvale of Monaghan 5-5 to 1-4 and Carrickmore beating Killeavy of Armagh 3-9 to 3-3 to earn their final spots.
The decider was a thrilling encounter with two excellent teams giving everything in trying to win the title. However it was the Derry men who went on to claim victory by 3 points. The Plate competition was won by Glenswilly, Donegal who defeated Longstone, Down in the final by 5-6 to 1-7.
