Junior Camogie Munster Final
Sr. Patricia Cup
Junior Camogie Munster Final
Colaiste Phobal Ros Cre vs Scoil Pol, Kilfinane
Final Score 1-0 – 0--0
On a wet and windy Sunday afternoon our Junior Camogie team took part in their first of two Munster finals over the next couple of weeks. Unfortunately the result went the wrong way today but a lot can be taken from this match. The conditions on the day was where the game was won and lost with both teams giving it their all. The match started off in frantic fashion with Rachel Carroll and Aoife O’Sullivan trying to stamp their authority on the game early on. All the early pressure was with Scoil Pol and this culminated in a flowing attack down the right through half forward Katie O’Connor whose pace and skill allowed her to beat the defence and play the sliotar across the box. Rachel Condon was at the end of that attack and through luck on Roscrea’s part somehow the sliotar stayed out of the goals.Read more ...
