Our Minior girls travelled to Gowran on Tuesday 9th April off the back of a great win over Piltown the previous week. The girls put in a great first half against a very strong and up to the age Gowran side. The scoreline at half time was Gowran 1-9 St Brigid’s 0-3. Gowran came out like a force to be reckoned with in the second half. Our young girls put in great determination and teamwork but were broke down by this Gowran side at every chance. The final score does not reflect the effort put in by this young St. Brigid’s side. Final score Gowran 5-13 St Brigid’s 1-8.
Our U14 girls started their league campaign on Monday 8th April v Gowran in Tom Ryall Park. Gowran started the better side but that didn’t stop St. Brigid’s. When they got a hold of the ball, off they took with great determination and great skill they put a brilliant goal in the back of the net. Gowran ran at the St. Brigid’s girls throughout the first half but the girls put over a few more points and were winning by 2 points at half time. There was no stopping the St Brigid’s girlS in the second half, a great team performance was displayed and all subs coming from the line showing great impact. A brilliant result for our first match ending on a scoreline of St. Brigid’s 4-10 Gowran 3-6.
The medal presentation to our victorious Under 14 and Under 16 Camogie teams will now take place on Friday January 18th at 7pm in Ballycallan Hall.
