Kilruane Camogie Notes Week Commencing 02/10/17
Hard luck to the intermediates who lost out on a semi-final spot with defeat to Cashel on Sunday. They say a game is of two halves and that statement was particularly true for Sunday’s game as the wind made it difficult conditions for both teams. Cashel won the toss and opted to play with the wind in the first half, and made good advantage of this decision as they raced into a 12 point lead just before half time but on the stroke of the whistle Kilruane scored a goal to reduce the deficit to 9 points at the break.
Kilruane came out at half time and took the game to Cashel with some well worked team scores and with 10 minutes to go there was only 1 point between the teams, but credit to Cashel they didn’t allow Kilruane draw level or go ahead and bounced back with a goal for themselves to stretch the lead back out to 4 before scoring another point to leave the score at full time Cashel 2:12 Kilruane 1:10.
The girls will rue some missed chances throughout the game.
We would like to thank the management team who put in a big effort for the whole year and would also like to thank the players for their time and effort throughout the year.
Hard luck to the u12’s who were eliminated from the championship at the weekend with a loss to Ballybacon. The girls gave it their all as they always do but just came up short on a scoreline of 2 goals to no score.
They have had four very competitive games at A grade and it was great experience for the girls and management to play against the best teams in the county.
We would like to thank the management, players and parents for their time and effort throughout the year it is greatly appreciated from the club.
U8 & U10
The annual parish league came to an end on Saturday.
The games started at 9:30am with Team Limerick defeating Team Cork and Team Kilkenny defeating team Wexford in the last round of the group stages. After these results the final pairings were determined, Team Kilkenny would play Team Limerick in the cup final and Team Wexford would play Team Cork in the shield final.
First up was the Shield final which was a tight game, Team Cork took the lead early on but Team Wexford bounced back and equalised which meant both teams went in level at half time. In the second half Team Cork scored to take the lead and held out from there to win the shield.
Next up was the cup final. Team Limerick took an early lead in this game in which they would hold out until the end to see them win the cup.
A great day of excitement and fun was had by all in which was the theme throughout the league. A lot of talent was on show and it was great to see so many numbers in the field.
