Go Games Finals

Under 8s
This weekend thirteen enthusiastic Under 8 girls represented
Ballincollig in an exciting Camogie Gala weekend in Castle Road. Two
teams played against Sarsfields in two equally balanced matches. The
games consisted of three periods giving the girls an opportunity to
play in all the different positions on the field.

In team A Ciara O Donovan gave a masterful display in midfield,
Sorcha McCarthys puck outs reached the far end of the pitch, Chloe
Bernardi was resolute in defence and in goals. Lily Carey Murphy
controlled her zone and was a prolific goal-scorer. Áine Creedon was
fantastic in the forwards and birthday girl Emma Lynch rushed from the
sideline (after treatment for an injury) to score a super goal.

Team B also gave a wonderful performance on the day. Meabh Dempsey was
a credit to her team, Meabh Power's work-rate as ever was second to
none, Ailbhe Hickey brought strength and leadership to the mid-field,
Ciara O Brien was fearless in the tackle, Hazel Power was a busy
beaver all through the game, Kate Lee, who stayed focused throughout,
contributed in all the zones and the experienced Aoibhinn O Flynn
played with characteristic tenacity.

Having played their hearts out through torrential downpours the sun
finally came out just in time to dry them off for the presentation.
The girls were delighted to receive cúl pink camogie wristbands and
groovy mini gear bags. A great day was had by all!
