Juvenile Camogie Round-up. A hectic weekend for our camogie girls where we made the most of our Indian summer. Now read on, folks!
U8: Vincents came to visit on Sunday morning. Our girls (pictured above) combined the experienced heads of last years u8s with the new nursery graduates, and wow, did they gel! Hungry for goals from the start, Vincents must have felt that our girls went without breakfast, as they gobbled up the goals in the early morning September sunshine. The new crew showed the benefit of their nursery years, pulling left and right, and powering up and down pitch 6.
U9: Our U9s hit the coast road for Raheny early on Sunday morning, where they fielded two teams against the locals. This crew have the camogie touch of veterans. Comfortable on the ball, and mad keen to keep that sliothar moving, they treated the coaches and parents to a feast of first time hurling and an avalanche of goals.
U10: Mini blitz time for this gas crew on Saturday afternoon. Maybe the Pavilions were expecting a bumper afternoon, as our convoy circled the roundabouts, bypassed the shopping, and settled in Fingallians for an hour of camogie bliss. Fielding 3 teams we played Fingallians and Parnells. Highlights were everywhere. High catching, 50 yard ground clearances, fast picks, and points and goals a plenty, these girls go from great to sublime! Well done! Proud of you, Mearnógies!
U11: Sunday morning saw our u11s (pictured above) scorch the sod on Pitches 4 and 5. Castleknock came to the parish, and we (castle)knocked them for 6 with a gorgeous display of camogie. On side by side pitches, we fielded two teams who gave it all. One win, one narrow, but honourable, loss. The mean average: Mearnóg all the way!
U13: Our U13s hit the trails for Castleknock on Sunday morning. The girls fought like tigers but went down to Castleknock in the championship. The girls have played some mighty games recently, and their reward is qualification for a shield semi final. Watch this space! Date and opposition to be confirmed.
U15: Our U 15s (pictured above) had a resounding win in the Championship at home to Skerries Harps on Sunday show. They powered home on a score line of 4-10 to 2-15. Next up: Championship semi final!
U16s: The girls lost out narrowly away to Plunketts on Saturday afternoon. The long trip in the Saturday sunshine was well worthwhile. A massive display by the girls, losing by a very narrow margin, 1-9 to 1-7.
