Our U9 camogie girls put in really strong performances at home to St. Oliver Plunketts on Sunday morning.
We had 30 girls out split in to 3 mini teams. No losses. 7 wins, 2 draws. A great return after the summer break! The girls who sneaked their hurleys into suitcases for their summer holidays were richly rewarded. And what about the two broken hurleys this Sunday! Giving it timber!
After the summer break, first match back for the U8’s Camogie saw us visiting Fingallions. After closely fought contest the home team edged us out narrowly to win three out of four matches. Great to see so many new players making their debuts.
Our U14 Camogie team played a championship game vs Ballyboden St. Enda’s at Pairc Mearnóg over the weekend. Naomh Mearnóg headed into the game needing a good result following a difficult opening game against Naomh Jude. Ballyboden were first off the mark with the opening score after five minutes but Naomh Mearnóg quickly got up and running and two goals in quick succession put us in a commanding position midway through the first half. However, Ballyboden rallied and were soon in front thanks to some accurate point shooting and a good goal. Our committed forwards grabbed a late goal to leave it 3 goals and 3 points to 3 goals in favour of Ballyboden at the break. The second half was very competitive with both defences on top and scores being very hard to come by. The Naomh Mearnóg midfield began to get on top but despite peppering the Boden goal a combination of good goalkeeping and bad luck frustrated again and again. However the continued persistence of the our girls paid off and the equalising goal arrived with just seconds left. The final score was Naomh Mearnóg 4 goals; Ballyboden 3 goals and 3 points. The draw means that all is still to play for in our last championship game away to Raheny on 20th September!!
