Under 8's Vs Sliabh Rua

For the third week in a row our under 8's played a match and the performances just keep getting better. There is great credit due to this bunch of girls. This game was against Sliabh Rua in our own pitch. Kellie was back with us and played very well in goal. Starting in front of her Kate O' S, another returning girl, Anna, Amy O Rourke and Amy Murphy. Aideen, Abbie and Eabha started in midfield with Megan, Miriam, Shannon and Shauna providing the fire power up front. The game got underway and this week the girls started in top gear. The development of their passing and positional sense was there for all the large crowd to see. Even from Kellies puck outs people were picking up good positions and looking for the pass. Megan got us off the mark with a point and Abbie scored the first goal of the day. Amy Murphy was controlling things at half back, while Eabha and Aideen were running midfield. With Eabha adding to the scoreline. First break and the girls were playing brilliantly. The usual squad rotation saw Nicole, Nic and Becky coming on. These three didn't take long to get into the game. Nicole at half forward was a great connection between the forwards and Anna, Kate and Aoife in midfield. Aoife despite the odd knock played very well, as Anna scored from midfield.
Amy Murphy had switched to full forward and added another point . Shannon, Becky and Shauna all came close. Kellie wasn't too busy in goal but what she had to do she did well. Another break and more positional changes saw Aideen, one of the new girls move forward and get the first goal of her Camogie career. Miriam in defence and Amy O Rourke in midfield kept going to the final whistle. After the final whistle blew, Mossie, Brendan and Eileen all complemented the girls on another great display of Camogie.

Next week we take a break from games and will back training on Sunday at 12.15.
