U6 Camogie girls play first match

St. martins U6 girls played their first challenge match against Dicksboro on Saturday the 29th of June in Dicksboro.  Nora McCarthy played a great game in goals with a lot of help from her backline of Caoimhe Phelan, Molly Farrell and Roisin Healy.  Our two centre field girls Casey and Emma held Dicksboro well throughout the match.  Molly Fox, May Cummins and Aoibheann Healy put in more great performances in the forwards.  Molly Farrell scored our first goal early in the first half with May Cummins adding another early in the second half.  Dicksboro played a great game throughout and with two late goals leveled the match.  Great fun was had by both teams and the girls were thrilled with the draw.

u10 Camogie Blitz

U 10 Camogie Blitz in Coon.

With the Camogie blitz season now in full swing our U10 girls played some great hurling at their home blitz in Coon last evening (Tuesday 26/6). The home team hosted teams from Tullaroan, Danesfort and Ballyragget.  The dry evening bought out the crowd and they were treated to some great displays of hurling from all the teams.  Some lovely ground hurling lead to some great goals by the home team, including a hat trick by one enthusiastic player.  We were also treated to some great displays of lifting and striking the ball especially around midfield.  The girls came away with a win and a draw and are looking forward to their next outing on the 6th July in Tullaroan. Our U8 girls will be in action this Saturday morning (28/6) in Dicksboro. Hope to see you all there.
