U14B Camogie Shield Final

St. Josephs DB (3-10) vs Newmarket-on-Fergus (4-01)
Venue: Ruan

Referee: Michael Culligan

 On a glorious evening, Wednesday last, the U14B Shield final between Newmarket-on-Fergus and St. Josephs DB was a highly competitive and entertaining match, where St. Josephs DB were victorious on a score line of 3-10 to 4-01.

Newmarket started stronger in the opening half, with the first point over the cross-bar by Amy Madden within seconds of the match starting. Not long afterwards it was followed by an excellent goal by Newmarket’s Kaci Toomey. St. Joseph’s were lucky not to concede more during this opening phase due to the immense pressure of the Newmarket’s forward and half forward lineout. But Katie Callaghan’s excellent free taking for St. Joseph’s kept them in touch. Newmarket’s Kaci scored two goals in quick succession minutes before the half-time whistle blew. Which saw them deservedly leading 3-01 to St. Joseph’s 0-05 at half-time.

The second half saw a resurgent St. Joseph’s turn the tide on Newmarket and outscore them by 11 points in the second half, with goals coming from Amber Piggott, Sinead O’Connor and Katie Callaghan. Newmarket’s only score in the second half came from a great goal from Emma Crowe. When the final whistle blew it finished at 3-10 to 4-01 to St. Josephs.

Well done to all our girls, who worked tirelessly and never gave up. We couldn’t have asked for more, you left everything on the pitch and should be immensely proud of yourself. Well done also to the management team, Kevin Enright, Aileen Kilmartin, Kevin Toomey and Aideen McLoughlin for your dedication to the girls and giving up your free time to help train and guide the girls. Your passion for the team really shone through on the side-lines Wednesday.  Thanks also to all the supporters who travelled and cheered the girls on. Your presence is also what makes a difference in the lives of these girls #supportourgirls #keepinggirlsinsport
