Coláiste Bhríde off to a flyer

Wicklow People (West Edition) - - SPORT - JU­NIOR ‘A’ CAMO­GIE


THE fi­nal of the 2018/’19 County Wick­low Post Pri­mary Schools Ju­nior ‘A’ camo­gie cham­pi­onship was held in Dunlavin on Mon­day be­tween Coláiste Bhríde Carnew and ‘B’ cham­pi­ons St Kevin’s CC Dunlavin. The game was played in light rain, es­cap­ing the down­pours that came later in the day.

The first half was very evenly con­tested. Katie Tyrrell opened the scor­ing with a long range goal for the Dunlavin school.

Coláiste Bhríde had points from Han­nah Doyle and Ab­bie Walsh but also hit a num­ber of wides un­der pres­sure from a res­o­lute St Kevin’s de­fence. Dunlavin added an Emma Hay­den goal and with only a few min­utes left in the first half led by 2-1 to 0-4.

How­ever, Han­nah Doyle scored a good goal for the Carnew school and they added an­other very soon af­ter­wards af­ter a de­fen­sive lapse.

At half-time the score was Coláiste Bhríde 2-4, St Kevin’s 2-1.

The favourites Coláiste Bhríde dom­i­nated the sec­ond half with su­per sub Sarah Doyle star­ring.

Sarah scored 1-5 her­self while Ab­bie Walsh and Han­nah Doyle added goals.

St Kevin’s also had some dan­ger­ous at­tacks and went close on a num­ber of oc­ca­sions in­clud­ing hit­ting the cross­bar but their only score in the half was a Katie Tyrrell point.

This was a fine all round dis­play by a skil­ful Coláiste Bhríde team and they will look for­ward to a suc­cess­ful cam­paign in Le­in­ster again this year. St Kevin’s also had a num­ber of fine play­ers but lacked the all round strength of their op­po­nents.

Af­ter the game Jim Mur­phy pre­sented the cup to the win­ning cap­tain Emma Tomp­kins.

Ref­eree was Declan Pep­pard. COLÁISTE BHRÍDE: Caitlin Hughes, Kayla Tighe, Melissa Do­ran, So­phie Do­ran, Aoife Kin­sella Karen Tomp­kins, Mol­lie Mul­roe, Emma Tomp­kins, Roisin Byrne, Eimear Byrne, Aine Do­ran, Shauna O’Shea, Ab­bie Walsh, Han­nah Doyle. SUBS Sad­hbh But­tle, Sarah Doyle.
