Match Report

By Sarah Gaughran

The Galway Intermediate Camogie team maintained their unbeaten record and booked their spot in the knockout stages of the Glen Dimplex Intermediate camogie championship this weekend after they had a comfortable victory over Dublin on Saturday. Galway who lined out with one change with Ally Hesnan coming in for Alannah Kelly, were in control throughout the whole contest.

Galway opened the scoring inside the opening minute with a free from Laura Kelly. Laura Loughnane got her first score of the contest on the 7 th minute while Abbie Ryan and Ciara Holand, through a free, both added points for Dublin to leave the teams on level terms after 10 minutes. Galway got five points without reply through Kelly 0-2 (0-1 45m), Tegan Canning, Katie Gilchrist and Ally Hesnan leaving Galway 0-7 to 0-2 ahead with 12 minutes left in the half. Holland picked off another well taken score for Dublin but this would be Dublin’s last score of the half. Kelly pointed three more points for Galway, 0-2 through a frees and Cora Kenny also slotted over a point for Galway to leave it Galway 0-11 Dublin 0-3 at half time.

Galway stormed out of the blocks in the second half scoring 1-4 in the opening 10 minutes without reply. Loughnane got Galway’s first point of the half while Jennifer Hughes responded with two points on the trot in the 32 nd and 34 th minutes. Kenny got Galway’s first major of the game on the 35th minute when she took on the Dublin defence and she blasted the ball into the back of the Dublin net. Kelly and Holland exchanged frees in the 38th and 41st minutes. Galway continued to blitz Dublin until the end of the game scoring 2-7 without reply. Niamh McPeake struck two goals for the tribeswomen while Kelly, through a free, Niamh McInerney 0-2, Gilchrist 0-2 (0-1f, 0-1 45m) and McPeake 0-2 all slotted over points for Galway. Holland broke Galway’s scoring streak on the 32nd minute when she pointed her 3rd free of the day but McInerney replied for Galway to leave it Galway 3-23 Dublin 0-5 and a place in the knockout stages of the championship secured.

Galway will be delighted to have their spot in the knockout stages secured with one match to spare. Galway’s skill level and ruthlessness must be commended, and this is something that they will need to bring into the game against Kerry in 2 weeks’ time. A win in the Kerry game will see the girls top the group and a place in the semi finals secured. Ciara Donohue, Lisa Casserly, Jennifer Hughes, Laura Kelly, Niamh McPeake and Laura Loughnane were some of Galway’s top performers while Jennifer Moore, Sarah Fenlon, Abbie Ryan Siobhan Keogh and Ciara Holland tried hard for Dublin. The girls have a break next weekend before their top of the table clash with Kerry.
