Under 12 Camogie

28 August, 2010

The U12 Camogie team took part in a Blitz in Arklow on Saturday 28th. After winning the initial round reasonably well the girls had a very close final against Kilcoole . In the first half Kilcoole pulled ahead twice only to be quickly pulled back each time by goals from Meadhbh Ni Mhidigh . The second half was very keenly contested but the Bray midfielders Maria Daly and Kellie Gilbert began to get on top . The defence in particular Claire Holland and Vicki Crimmins tightened up and the goalkeeper Claire Faherty made some fine saves.Katherine Hayes was also dominant at full back with the result that no scores were conceded in the second half . The forwards peppered the Kilcoole goal with near misses from Ciara Nolan and Lydia Griffin until finally Ruth Aherne scored the winning goal for Bray . It was a great 3 : 2 win secured without the combative defender Nicola Holland who had been injured in the earlier round.

Well done girls and the very best of luck in the final of the B Championship on September 3rd.

The Bray team on the day was Claire Faherty , Vicki Crimmins , Nicola Holland , Katherine Hayes , Maria Daly , Ruth Aherne, Kellie Gilbert , Aoife Connaughton , Ciara Nolan , Claire Holland ,Lydia Griffin ,Meadhbh Ní Mhidigh
