Two wins out of two for Adult Camogie teams


Both senior and junior camogie teams were in action in Marlay on Tuesday evening in the second round of the league.

The senior girls beat Ballyboden’s B team with a scoreline of 2-7 to 3-3. Scores from Jane Tully, Louise O’Shea, Niamh McKennedy and Amber Traynor helped the team register their first league win of 2015. Due to injuries the team were without any subs and found the going tough in the second half but strong defensive displays from Aisling Browne and Breda Kennedy in the final minutes helped the girls hold out for a 1 point win.

The Junior camogie team played their first league game against Na Gael óga. This was the very first outing for newly formed club Na Gael óga’s camogie team. The gaelgóirs were full of enthuasiasm but unfortunately their lack of experience let them down on the day. All of the Ballinteer forwards had scores to their name with particular mention to the under 16 girls who played their very first game at adult level; Siofra Andrews, Isobel Cullen and Megan Broe. They never let up and the final score finished 5.13 to no score to the Ballinteer girls.

Next Tuesday night has the senior girls at home to Good Council and the junior girls away to Parnells. Both games throw in at 6.45pm, all support welcome
