In­spi­ra­tional Bron­agh leads Ballintem­ple to de­served win

Irish Examiner - County - - Sport - Ballintem­ple Glenville

AF­TER an en­ter­tain­ing game of camo­gie, Ballintem­ple, in­spired by Bron­agh O’Shaugh­nessy, claimed the Al­lianz DC5 camo­gie ti­tle with a win over Glenville at Pairc Ui Rinn. Both teams de­serve great credit for play­ing so well in very warm con­di­tions and both sides had some qual­ity play­ers on show.

Af­ter a low scor­ing first half the teams were level at the break with a goal a piece.

Ava Fitzger­ald opened the scor­ing for Glenville with a su­perb fin­ish while Emelia Stack got the equaliser soon af­ter from close range.

It took 13 min­utes of play be­fore the first score which showed the tough bat­tle be­tween both sides all over the pitch.

An en­joy­able first half with both teams bat­tling hard. Me­abh Cree­don, Hazel O’Con­nell, Bron­agh O’Shagh­nessy ex­celled for Ballintem­ple while Aoib­heann Mini­hane O’Sul­li­van, and Ava Fitzger­ald im­pressed for Glenville.

The sec­ond half was as ex­cit­ing as the first with some lov­ing hurl­ing played by both teams. Once again it was a fierce bat­tle be­tween the sides who worked tiressly un­der saveage heat.

The im­pres­sive Bron­agh O’Shaugh­nessy opened the scor­ing in this half giv­ing Ballint- em­ple a one point lead and this was fol­lowed with a sec­ond goal from Emelia Stack.

Ju­lia Byrne had made a su­perb run be­fore mak­ing a per­fect pass to Stack who struck beau­ti­fully to the back of the net.

The game’s stand-out player Ava Fitzger­ald struck over from a free to bring the game back to a goal, how­ever, a quick break up the field saw Ju­lia Byrne bury the ball to the back of the net from a tight an­gle to fin­ish the scor­ing and give Ballintem­ple a 3-1 to 1-1 vic­tory.

Well done to both teams on a su­perb game.
