Moyle Rovers under 13 camogie team travelled to The Ragg last Thursday evening to contest the county semi final.
We came up against a very strong Ballingarry team. It was a tough game for our young girls but they lost nothing in defeat as they played their hearts out.
Emma Tobin has to be commended for her brave work in the goalmouth where the defence of Clare O’Dwyer, Amy Norris and Sarah Clarke battled hard all through.
The half back line of Yasmin Quirke, Louise Norris and Sophie Delaney constantly chased and put pressure on the Ballingarry forwards.
Áine Fitzgerald played a captain’s role in midfield along with Emma Cronin who covered great ground.
Karen Meehan, Ellen Buckley and Erin Mitten played their part when introduced in the second half.
Emer Ryan got the second half off to a great start with a well taken goal.
The half-forwards of Leah Mc Garry and Sarah Hickey were constantly challenging and supplying the full forward line with ball.
The full forward line had to give way to a physically bigger full back line from Ballingarry. Despite this Caitriona Phelan and Sarah O’Connor were not deterred!
Our other under 11 members on the panel Michelle Cronin, Sorcha O’Brien and Alanna Dowling are to be commended as they played their part too in this campaign and we look forward to watching them play for another two years at this grade.
This team has given us great enjoyment and have shown great spirit throughout to get to this stage of the competition. The team deserve great credit for their performances in reaching a county semi-final.
Thanks to John Ryan, Karen Fitzgerald and Anne Mc Garry who have worked with these girls. The support from parents and Pat O’Connor, who always has the pitch in top condition for our home games, is also appreciated.
Team: Emma Tobin, Clare O’Dwyer, Amy Norris, Karen Meehan, Yasmin Quirke, Louise Norris, Sophie Delaney, Áine Fitzgerald, Emma Cronin, Sarah Clarke, Leah Mc Garry, Sarah Hickey, Emer Ryan, Caitriona Phelan, Sarah O’Connor, Erin Mitten, Ellen Buckley, Sorcha O’Brien, Michelle Cronin, Alanna Dowling
