Senior Camogie Championship - Semi Final

Ballincollig V's Imokilly in Semi Final of Senior "A" Camogie Championship.
Sunday 26th Sept, 12.30pm in Castle Road, Mahon.

Ballincollig made their first appearance in the Semi Final of the Senior Championship. Our opponents on the day were the very favoured divisional side Imokilly.

Ballincollig started very brightly and had 1-1 on the score board, before Imokilly got their first point,  The match was a excellent match with both teams showing well.  Ballincollig went in at the half with the early goal lead and the second half was all to play for. 

The second half was very tough but Ballincollig began to break away and got a ahead by 6 points, when we should have gone further ahead costly misses in front of goal gave the momentum back to Imokilly and the the final 7 minutes Imokilly breached the goal 3 times, despite Ashleen giving a 'player of the match' performance.  One goal was questionable and we could feel aggrieved, but in the final minute Denis Cronin stepped up to take a difficult free to level the match.  WE had one more chance but it wasn't to be and so both clubs survive to play another day.
