Our senior camogie girls overcame Buffers Alley, away in Monamolin, in the second round of their senior championship on a score line of 1-7 to 1-5. The girls showed great character and composure to win having been behind at half-time by 0-4 to 0-2. It's never easy at this level but particularly hard on girls to have to field with the county teams less than 24 hours earlier. However a second win in the group puts us in a nice position to work towards making a quarter final spot. Well done to all and congrats to Noeleen Lambert, Lisa and Linda Bolger who were part of the Wexford team who beat Cork in Wexford park on Saturday. Also on Saturday, St. Vincent’s of Dublin came down to Piercestown for under 10, 12 and 14 camogie matches, all of which we won. Thanks to parents for providing the refreshments afterwards.

 

Hard luck to Amy Ryan and Marie Clare Morrissey who were on the intermediate camogie team defeated by Meath. Commiserations also to Ciaran Lyng and Daithí Waters who played really well with the county footballers on Sunday and were desperately unlucky to end up on the losing team.

 

The under 10 boys had 2 tough matches at home to Ballinastragh Gaels who proved to have the edge on us in the big ball game. Two days later, the lads played 2 fantastic games of hurling against Shelmaliers on Friday night. The spirit, skill and sportsmanship on display was a credit to both sets of players and coaches. On the same night, our minor footballers beat Sarsfields by 4-11 to 0-7 which made it a great week for them as they travelled to Rathnure 2 days earlier and earned a tough 3-13 to 4-6 hurling win.

 

Our under 12 boys are all set for a busy few weeks. The A team will face St Fintan's in the first round of the Kilmore Tournament tonight at 7:30pm and both A & B teams will play the County League Div. 1 re-fixture v Gusserane on Saturday at 11am in Gusserane. Last Tuesday, the boys followed up a fine 4-7 to 2-4 win over Naomh Eanna in football with a very strong showing in Division 1 hurling against the same opposition. An excellent second half performance saw the lads overcome our great rivals from Gorey on a 5-7 to 1-5 scoreline.

 

Our under 14 hurlers had a good win against the Rapparees last Thursday, winning by 5-10 to 1-8. The boys played some fantastic hurling with some great team scores and they are really starting to find a bit of form through hard work and teamwork. Well done also to our minor hurlers who travelled to Oulart last Wednesday and, after a tight first 15 minutes, pulled away to earn a great win by 4-17 to 0-12 and they’re through now to the county semi-final.

 

The intermediate ladies football team had an excellent win at home to Clongeen, also on Wednesday, by 4 points. There was some concern after the match as Aine Hayes was taken away to hospital in an ambulance with a neck injury. Thankfully it proved not to be serious and we wish her a very quick recovery. As for the underage girls’ footballers, the group games for both the under 12 and 14 teams are now completed. Our under 12s gave a very good account of themselves in their group games and they will compete in the shield. The 14s had a shaky start to their group games but they finished very strongly and finished joint second and will now compete in the cup. Their first game will be against Clonard.

Last week’s Lotto numbers were 5, 10, 25 and 26 and while we had 2 match 3 winners, the grand prize of €15,000 remains unclaimed
