Championship v Blarney in Carrigtwohill on Friday 31st August 2012

Carrigtwohill 2-3 Blarney 1-7

On Friday evening last (24th August), Carrigtwohill hosted Blarney in a keenly contested affair in the 2nd round of the Junior C camogie championship.
Blarney started the game well and threatened first but Sinead Collins and Sarah Curtin in particular and the Carrig defence in general repelled any attack from the visitors. Carrig then settled into the game and were ahead after 10 minutes with Tracey Horgan kicking home the first goal of the game after doing well to work her away in from outside the 21. Boosted by that score, Carrig then really got a grip of the game and added 3 more points through Maria Moniher, Rachael Sheehan and a free from Ciara Dixey. Despite being on top, a couple of points conceded by way of a score from open play and a free in the Carrig defence brought Blarney back into the game. Then a rash clearance attempt by goalie Andrea Buttimer on a speculative high ball led to a goal for Blarney near the end of the first half. This left the scores level at half time, Carrig 1-3 Blarney 1-3.

A determined Carrig started the second half the brighter of the 2 teams and both Rachael Sheehan and Maria Moniher were unlucky to be denied goals by hitting a Blarney defender and the side netting respectively. Despite the early dominance it was Blarney who scored first in the second half with a point soon followed by a pointed free. Carrig responded strongly however and the lively Michelle Oâ•˙Sullivan nipped in for a goal. The score was now Carrig 2-3 to Blarneyâ•˙s 1-5. The game flowed from end to end with both teams going all out to win. With the pressure on, chances from frees and open play were missed by both teams. With the game so tight, discipline was going to be important, and the concession of a couple of late frees put Blarneyâ•˙s noses in front. Carrig rallied but were unable to conjure up the equaliser.
The game ended on a final scoreline of Carrig 2-3, Blarney 1-7.
It was a heartbreaking result for Carrig who played so well in a very evenly matched game. The girls can be very proud of their efforts however as every single one of them gave it their best. The performance was a massive improvement from the heavy defeat to Bride Rovers a couple of weeks earlier and proves they are capable of competing with most teams and beating them too. Hopefully the team realise from this what can be achieved with the right attitude, effort and commitment in what was a very enjoyable game.



League v Aghadain Carrigtwohill on Saturday 21st July 2012

The Carrig girls were anticipating a return match with opponents Aghada after Aghada demonstrated their skills in fine fashion at the last meeting.
Under an unusual blue sky, the Carrig girls got 'stuck in' from the off, and put in a determined display. This continued over the entire games and they came out worthy winners. Thanks to the sporting Aghada girls for travelling.

Well done girls.




League v St. Fanahans in Carrigtwohill on Tuesday 10th April

Carrigtwohill 1-1 St. Fanahans 3-6

This was the Juniors first match outing for 2012. Despite a bitterly cold night, the girls were anxious to get to the field after weeks of training. Despite a number of absentee players, the girls put on a great show of strength. St. Fanahans proved to be the stronger team on the night. But the Carrig girls can be justly proud of their performance. Well done girls
