Kilbree U14’s progress in county championship!
Kilbree U14 camogie girls progressed to the county quarter-final stage, having defeated Castlelyons on Monday night. The match was played under lights in Cloughduv. Kilbree had lost to Castlelyons twice this season on previous outings.
A great start by Kilbree made the difference. The Kilbree girls fought for every ball with great tenacity. Player of the match Maeve O’Neill made some great runs into the forward line and score 2-2 in the first half as a result. Caoimhe Murphy scored a goal from long range. Kilbree dominated for the first half and lead 3-4 to 1-3 at half time.
However, Castlelyons were a different side in the second half. Kilbree’s backs had to withstand many attacks and they did so in style. A Castlelyons goal in injury time almost put the victory in doubt. Kilbree showed great grit and determination to hold out. The final score was Kilbree 4-4 Castlelyons 3-6.
Team: Heather Brimble, Orlagh O’Neill Callanan, Kate O’Donovan, Margaret Collins, Aife O’Neill, Emily O’Donovan, Jessica O’Driscoll, Caoimhe Murphy, Mary Murphy, Maeve O’Neill, Rachel Deasy, Niamh McCarthy, Ava Murray, Rebecca Hurley, Alison Collins and Lucy Collins.
The U16 B2 West Region football final involved Kilmeen and Kilmichael. The game was played in Ballinacarriga on Sunday afternoon. Kilmichael made a good start. Brian Carmody made some fine saves in the first half and throughout the game. Scores by Thomas Tyner and Cian Murphy left Kilmeen five points adrift at half time. Two Kilmichael goals early in the second half put Kilmeen’s chances in trouble. Kilmeen only managed to score three points in the second half. The final score was Kilmichael 3-17 Kilmeen 0-6. This group of players, while disappointed with this result are still involved in the county stages of both hurling and football.
