The U12 Camogie Gala Blitz was held in Marlay on Saturday 9th November. Ballinteer St Johns was delighted to host Cuala, Kilmacud Crokes and Bray Emmetts in this season finale.
After a slow start to the season the BSJ Blue team to their credit picked up winning a number of matches in style. One notable encounter included a nail biting game with Kilmacud Crokes. Early exchanges saw Crokes race in to a commanding lead. The BSJ team fought back coming from 5 goals down to knock in 5 goals in a row to lead by 2 points only to be beaten in the last 5 minutes.
The Gala Blitz was a chance to round of the season for the four teams. St Johns gained some satisfaction when they secured a hard fought draw against Cuala a team which beat them decisively earlier in the season. Great credit goes to all who participated in the blitz playing tremendous camogie. Well done to the Bray Emmets team who came out on top winning all their games. The day finished up with a medal ceremony and all players went home exhausted but happy.
