An early start for the trip to south Armagh to take on Killeavy in u14.
Where to start our girls showed just how quickly their improving by totally dominating. They fought and played for scores from start to finish putting a young Killeavy to the sword.
In nets we had Caitlin Godfrey who had very little to do but had couple good puck outs.
The defence, Orflaith Garrity, Amy McGoldrick, Ciara McDonnell and Dearbhile McGivern were simply rock solid and were rarely broken throughout, with excellent redistribution of ball that did come in, Dearbhile coming out with 2-2 to her name, an excellent return for the young star.
Midfield was triple ‘A’, due to 12 aside we had a 3rd midfielder, Aoife Armstrong debut girl, Aoife Gileece the general and the thorn in most opposition sides like her sister young Alibhe Kane. The three worked like demons putting constant ball into forwards and winning most opposition puck outs. A great showing from the 3.
In forwards we had released the hurler in Rebecca Monaghan coming out of nets for the day, she wasn’t long finding the opposition net herself, the spoiler and wrecker Katie Rose McClenaghan also released from defence was up to torture the defence of Killeavy. The novelty full forward line saw our unstoppable captain Tara Cullen matched with our youngest player primary 7 Eimear Mullan who played superb and chased every ball a great Camog in making. The captain and star player today Tara Cullen ran out with 5 goals to her name, a joy to watch and coach.
The team improves all the time and its clear to see their path to senior camogie is their own if they continue to train hard.
After we went to McDonalds and on up to watch Antrim win semi final of Christy ring cup. A great day was had by all, I’d say lot of tired heads.
See everyone Wednesday night at the club.
