29 October 2012
Bredagh took their first Ulster title in fine style with a comfortable 14-point win over Derry's Na Magha at Casement Park on Sunday.

Bredagh (Down) 4-18
Na Magha (Derry) 3-7

The Down champions made a flying start to the game and led 1-5 to 0-0 mid way through the opening half before full forward Daryl Connelly registered Na Magha's first score.

Teenager Lorcan McMullan was outstanding in the first half registering 1-6, his goal came on 8 minutes.

Na Magha responded well with two goals of their own, from Alan Grant (penalty) and Diarmuid Shiels leaving the scores at 1-8 to 2-2.

Leading at half time - 1-10 to 2-3, Bredagh's advantage was reduced to the minimum seven minutes after the resumption when Tamar Douban fired to the net for Na Magha.
