Junior camogie team through to championship semi finals

November 7, 2018

Fr. Murphy’s produced an excellent display in the Junior Camogie Championship on Saturday last to reach the semi finals of the competition by beating Bros. Pearse on a scoreline of 3-03 to 1-03. Having been tied with Bros. Pearse on points in the group phase, it was decided that the teams should play to determine who would progress.


Fielding with only 10 players against a strong Bros. Pearse 12, the girls in purple and gold always had their work cut out for them. Bros. Pearse got off the mark first with an early point but Fr. Murphy’s did not give up and entered half time a point down.


They came out in the second half even stronger and the midfield duo of Hannah Noonan and Claire Towey ran riot around the pitch. Anne Marie Keogh, Edel Byrne and Jade O’Neill kept a tight full back line, while further up the pitch Sinead Kirk and Emma Taylor got their names on the score sheet. At times it was easy forget that Fr. Murphy’s were two players short.


The next outing for the junior team is Saturday 11th July in the championship semi finals when they face Green Isle. The other semi final sees Croydon and Tara battle it out for a place in the final.


This weekend sees the senior camogie team play Croydon in the final group game of the championship. The match takes place in Greenford at 2pm.
