Camogie Notes

Fé14 Notes

FE14 Championship Camogie V Banteer

On Sunday evening 8th August we began our Championship with our first game this season against Banteer Camogie on home soil. We started well knocking over some great points from play from Rebecca Cronin and Kate O’Sullivan, followed up with two goals from Tia Wall and Faye Dunlea. Banteer then got into their stride with some skilful scores of their own and the sides went into half time with Midleton leading 3-6 to 1-5.

We introduced three subs at half time and on came Sarah McConville who put in a great second half performance as well as taking a lovely point from a free that was out by the sideline. The other two subs Chloe Griffin and Emma Keeshan kept the high standard from the first half going and Midleton just piled on the scores with the forwards getting great service from Sorcha Cronin who was outstanding in midfield. We brought on our final two subs Leila Garde and Cara Wallace at the water break who helped restrict Banteer to a single score in the second half. Midleton who were captained by Faye Dunlea ran out worthy winners on a scoreline of

Midleton 6-11

Banteer 2-5

We wish Banteer and their mentors well for the remainder of the championship and thank them for the long journey they made to us. Our next game is the 2nd round at home to Cloughduv on Wed 18th Aug with a 7:30 throw in.
