Coláiste Choilm claim crown in goal-fest

Irish Examiner - Sport - - CAMOGIE -

Coláiste Choilm up­set cham­pi­ons Coach­ford in yes­ter­day’s Cork Col­leges Se­nior A Camo­gie fi­nal, when they turned a nine-point deficit into a vic­tory of the same mar­gin. Straight from the thrown in, Coach­ford’s Ciara Mc­carthy found Marie O’reilly who calmly slot­ted to the net, rock­ing the Ballincol­lig girls. Han­nah O’leary re­sponded with a well-taken goal, but Coach­ford tal­is­man Cliona Healy took over, notch­ing 1-4 to no re­ply, and goals from Marie O’reilly and Ella Fo­ley gave the cham­pi­ons a dom­i­nant lead. How­ever their su­pe­ri­or­ity was short-lived, as Ballincol­lig went goal crazy in the last 10 min­utes of the half, with Me­abh Mur­phy, O’leary, Doo­ley and a dou­ble from Orla Mc­carthy leav­ing Coach­ford shell-shocked go­ing into the break two points down. Coláiste Choilm picked up where they left off, with Kate Doo­ley grab­bing her side’s sixth goal.

Healy kept Coach­ford’s heads up with a well-taken free, only for Coláiste Choilm’s Han­nah O’leary and Me­abh Mur­phy to kill the game with their sec­ond goals.
