Securing a second senior title has cemented Scariff/Ogonnelloe’s status as “a great team,” defender Susan Vaughan maintained.

It took a replay for Scariff/Ogonnelloe to overcome Truagh/Clonlara but the 2019 county and provincial champions prevailed in a very impressive defensive display that saw corner forward Alva Rodgers collect the player of the game award.

Susan Vaughan didn’t line out for the East Clare side’s first two games where they defeated Kilkishen/Bodyke and St Josephs Doora/Barefield but returned for round three when they ended Newmarket-on-Fergus’ championship aspirations.

Her presence at wing-back ensured there was strength and physicality, a feature that continued right throughout their campaign.

Speaking to The Clare Echo, Susan pinpointed their workrate in the opening quarter when Truagh/Clonlara were dominating as important. “It was an epic battle again today. Truagh/Clonlara are a fantastic team and to get over the line its pure joy. We were all over the shop in the first fifteen minutes. It felt like we were in a hole and couldn’t get out of it but we kept going. We did the basics right and we had a savage workkrate”.

“Aisling Corbett came on and nailed frees a hurler wouldn’t nail from 65 yards.. This second title shows it was no fluke two years ago. Winning a second makes you a great team. We had loads of young players today and this will drive Scariff/Ogonelloe on for years to come”.
