U14 Camogie v Ballygalget

In the U14 Camogie Final An Riocht lost to Ballygalget in Leitrim on Sunday for the right to be crowned Champions in the Under 14 Cup Final.

 

An Riocht won the toss and played with the wind, however the Ards team settled quick scoring two quick goals. An Riocht played well, however still found the Ballygalget half back line in fine form, who supplied good ball into their quick forwards. Caitlin Quinn in the An Riocht goals made some fine saves, and captain Caoimhe Leigh Spiers was playing well, while Andrea O’Neill swept up well during this period. In the second half An Riocht kept playing and trying so hard that Ballygalget were reduced to fewer scores with the strong wind, all said Ballygalget were very worthy winners, An Riocht can be very proud making the Championship final and indeed winning the Feile Shield in May.

 

An Riocht played 12 matches in 2014 winning 9 and losing only 3. The girls had a great evening at the post match meal in the club and would like to thank the large group of parents that showed up to support their efforts.

U14 Camogie in Mayobridge

An Riocht completed their U14 Camogie league campaign away to Mayobridge on Tuesday night past. Following last week’s defeat this young team showed great bounce backability winning the game 6-7 to 3-1.

 

The team mentors were able to try some things before the Championship Final with the players showing great versatility. Caoimhe McAlinden playing in goals in the first half then then scored two goals in the second half, likewise young Cerys Clarke playing at full back and then scoring a fine solo goal at full forward after the break.

 

There will be another game with opposition from outside the County before the final as nothing brings young players on like playing matches.

U14 Camogie An Riocht v Castlewellan

Castlewellan visited Dunavil on Friday in the U14 Camogie Championship, the home side started well scoring 5-3 in the first half. At halftime with the game well under control the coaches moved the backs and forwards and the backs outscored the front players to leave the coaches with some thinking before they meet Mayobridge in the semi-final. This was an excellent result as six players were missing due to holidays and the summer Irish college season, well done girls.
