Four players from Lurgan Ladies helped Ulster 18s secure back to back Inter-provincial titles in Dublin at the weekend.

Kathryn Edgar, captain, Kerrie Burns, Amy Edwards and Jenny Morrow helped make an impact at the tournament.

Ulster began their defence with a 4-2 victory over Munster on Friday with Kathryn scoring the third goal with a drag flick from a penalty corner.

The first of two games on Saturday started with a comprehensive 5-0 win over South East. They entered the second game with Connaught knowing goal difference could decide the tournament and racked up a 9-0 win with Kerrie scoring two drag flicks and Jenny also on target in the rout.

This set up a decider with Leinster on the Sunday with Ulster having the better goal difference a draw would be enough and in a hard fought encounter Ulster got the result they wanted with a 2-2 score and they were crowned 2015 champions.

Well done to the Lurgan quartet.
