Match Report U13 Camogie v Na Fianna 2015-04-20 18:47:00

U13 Camogie Div 1 Russell park Nh Brid 4-1 Na Fianna 2-4

It was a hard fought win for the Nh Brid girls in a game that impressed both sets of fans on the side line.

The backs where the heroes of the day, closing down the very skilful Na Fianna forwards, a man of the match performance by Maria Cormican in the backs mopping up a lot of ball was supported well by Isabella Heffernan, Ella Mansfield, Zoe Galvin, Kathryn Dunphy, Cara Galvin and Sara Higgins. Ellie

Raftery topped her great performance with the footballers the day before by pulling off a number of goal line saves in the first half to keep the Brigid`s girls in the game. 

A point by Na Fianna was quickly responded by a goal made by Grace Maher who knocked the ball on to Tara Murphy to strike it into the back of the net.

The middle of the park Caoimhe O Reilly and Sadhbh Kearney worked very hard supporting both the

backs and forwards, and kept running and tracking players the whole game. 

In a extremely tight game Na Fianna scored a goal to put them two points up with only minutes left to play and were convinced they now had the game in the bag. But no one told Amy Quinn who kept

winning ball and breaking forward into the space made by the hard work of the forwards Ava Duignan, Eva Moore, Ruth Hanley, Amy Boyle and Claudia Daly.

A free won by Caoimhe O'Reilly twenty yards out from the Na Fianna goal was taken by Amy Quinn and she nearly burst the back of the net to put the Brigids girls back up a point. The game was then made safe when Claudia Daly battled to win a ball and passed it onto Sara Higgins to slot into the net.

Final score: Nh Brid 4-1 to Na Fianna 2-4. 

A  great display of camogie by both teams played in the morning sunshine of Russell park.
