Big wins for Donard, Bal­li­na­cor and Knock­ananna

Bray People - - SPORT -

THE NEW sea­son for the camo­gie clubs in the county started last Sun­day with the first round of matches played in the Se­nior league.

How­ever be­fore the league started it was an­nounced that Gle­nealy had with­drawn their Se­nior team from com­pe­ti­tions for this sea­son due to a short­age of play­ers.

They had sim­i­lar prob­lems last year but it was hoped that they would be back in ac­tion for 2014, un­for­tu­nately they are un­able to field again this year.

It is a pity to see a club like Gle­nealy, with a proud tra­di­tion in both hurl­ing and camo­gie not be­ing able to field a team at Se­nior level.

In the three matches that were played, Kil­coole trav­elled to Donard to play last year’s cham­pi­ons. How­ever, Donard proved to be very strong and they came away with a com­pre­hen­sive vic­tory over a very young Kil­coole side.

In the sec­ond match Bal­li­na­cor made the long jour­ney to Kil­te­gan.

It proved to be a fruit­ful trip for the Glen­malure out­fit as they came home with a vic­tory in a fairly closely con­tested match, and so the sea­son has got off to a good start for Bal­li­na­cor.

The third match saw the Intermediate cham­pi­ons from last year, Avoca, take on the Se­nior cham­pi­ons, Knock­ananna, in Avoca. This match was closely con­tested for the first half with only a cou­ple of points in it at the break. How­ever, Knock­ananna turned on the style in the sec­ond half and they showed why they are Se­nior cham­pi­ons, run­ning out easy win­ners on a score­line of 6-08 to 0-05.

Be­fore this match started there was a pre­sen­ta­tion of new jer­seys made by Mi­ley Doyle from Avoca Re­cy­cling Cen­tre to the Avoca camo­gie girls.

Mi­ley raised the money with a scrap metal collection for the club. The club would like to thank Mi­ley and Wick­low County Coun­cil for their gen­eros­ity.

Fix­tures for next Sun­day April 6 are as fol­lows: Bal­li­na­cor v Knock­ananna; Donard v Kil­te­gan; Kil­coole v Avoca

All games at 12pm. First named team at home.
