Match Report: Under-8 Camogie

21 September, 2013

On Saturday, 21st September an excited bunch of 2005 girls travelled with hurls and helmets in hand to Cuala for a Camogie match. The positive large number of girls, including some recent recruits meant that we were able to field two teams of nine, which bodes well for the future. Two games of Camogie, followed by a game of Football were played .The K team played on the middle pitch and were soon chasing the sliotár around, the girls changed positions so everyone had a chance “up front” or in “midfield” with each of them enthusiastically contributing. Caoimhe had some great puck outs from goal, April was a steady presence in the middle, with some powerful shots sending the sliotár from our defence up to attack in one strike. Sarah kept busy and Julia fought for every ball as if she would get homework passes for each one she won! Eimear, scored several goals in both Camogie and Football. One of Martha’s scores brought a huge smile to her face as well as to spectator Mum on the touchline.  Jessica happily got stuck into the action be it tackling or striking the ball.  A special mention must go to Cara and Erica, playing their first match as if they had been playing for years.
Our other Bray Emmets team gave an equally impressive performance with some great skill displayed and it was a very entertaining morning of football and hurling. There was great goalkeeping by Jasmine and some fine defending by Alva and Rachel, great leadership was shown by Emma N, Laura and Aoibhe in midfield and Emma B and Tara took some nice scores.
