Camogie News – 7th March

St Johns will against Lucan

On Sunday, the St Johns junior camogie team got their season off to a fine start with a comprehensive 13 point win over Lucan Sarsfields on a final scoreline of 4 – 4 to 0 – 3.

Leading from the off, Ballinteer opened strongly and piled on the pressure straight from the throw-in despite playing against a strong breeze. Leading at half time, the team pushed on in the second half, never letting a youthful Lucan side gain any momentum. The BSJ team successfully blended youth and experience, and in the end were far too strong for their west-side opponents. Next Sunday sees the junior team take on  St Finianians at Thomas Davis venue in Kiltipper Road at 2.30pm

Dublin Fiona Hayes win over Tipperary
On the inter-county senior camogie scene, our club star Fiona Hayes had an outstanding game for Dublin in their superb win over Tipperary in the opening match of their National League campaign. Playing at right half back, Fiona and her half back colleagues  Grainne Quinn and Catriona Power put in a very powerful display. With Louise O’Hara contributing 5 points while excelling at midfield  and with all six forwards getting on the scoreboard, the Dublin ladies were a point ahead at the final whistle. Congratulations to all, and best of luck for the remainder of the season.

Reminder:  training continues Wednesdays, meet at Broadford at 7.15.
