On Saturday 15th April Carrigtwohill u12 Camogie team attended a blitz hosted by Watergrasshill Camogie Club.
4 teams attended: Watergrasshill, Carrigtwohill, Midleton and St Fanahans.
Watergrasshill did a great job of organising the blitz with all 4 teams playing consecutively on 2 pitches, 15 minutes a side and with 10 minutes break in between. Each girl also received a goodie bag at the end of the blitz so huge thanks to the hosting club for a great day out.
9 players turned up from Carrigtwohill. Some of the squad were playing u14 that day and it being the Easter holidays, some girls were also on holidays. Our first game was against the hosts Watergrasshill. At the end of the 15 minutes there wasn’t anything in it to separate these 2 teams. A great performance from the girls. The attitude they displayed in this game was to be repeated throughout the remaining games.
Next up was Midleton. Midleton were very strong on the day, they were our toughest opponents, and Carrigtwohill were under a lot of pressure from early on. But the girls hurled for the jersey and the village and did not leave themselves down. They walked off the pitch with heads held high.
The final game was against St Fanahans. A tough game that was well contested by both sides. Stellar defending from Carrigtwohill was on display throughout this game. Again the girls attitude and willingness to get stuck in was great to watch.
Overall, we had a great day, tough matches and mighty hurling 🙂
