Senior LadiesClann na nGael 5-10 1-9 Shannon Gaels
The Sheraton sponsored Clann na nGael senior ladies team got their championship campaign underway on Sunday last. In a sun drenched Johnstown the ladies played with a strong breeze in the opening half and were lucky to 4 points up at the break.
The visitors controlled the opening 15 minutes of the second half. However the Clann ladies really dug deep and ran out comfortable victors. The score doesn't to justice to a well prepared Shannon Gaels team but the Clann ladies were clinical and their work rate was unequalled. Every player in blue played their part.
Team: Eadaoin Lennon, Amy Quinn, Kelly Colgan, Leanne Ward, Megan Kelly.,Gillian Wall, Aine Connaughton, Shauna Connell, Ruth Finlass, Caoimhe Lennon, Kayleigh Dunning, Ciara Galvin, Therese Lennon, Sinead Farrell & Ciava Dunning. Subs: Kara Earle, Rosie Lennon, Danielle Greasly, Shauna Naughton & Sinead Connaughton.
Under 12 GirlsOur Girls completed phase 2 of the 2018 championship with maximum points (3 wins from 3) having overcome Castlerea by 10 scores to 4 in a well contested away game. This left Clann facing a semi-final against our near neighbours St.Brigids in Kiltoom.
Clann started strongly with some early scores but the game developed into a tense and tight encounter with the large crowd treated to an absorbing match. Both sides had opportunities to win in normal time but the sides finished level at the end meaning extra time was required. At this stage Clann regrouped and eventually came out on top by 11 scores to 10 in what can only be descried as a thrilling finale in which our Girls displayed immense courage, spirit, teamwork and skill.
With little turnaround (5 days) our Girls faced a very strong Oran team in the county final, again in Kiltoom. Despite playing with the wind in the opening half Clann trailed by 4 scores at half time. Once again the Girls demonstrated great spirit in the second half and pushed a fine Oran side all the way, eventually losing by 12 scores to 8. Injuries to certain key players worked against the group but the club should be immensely proud of the entire panel for the tremendous showing from our Girls in the final. Overall the Clann U12 Girls had a brilliant year and continuously improved in all facets of their play in the many matches encountered throughout the county. Well done Girls.
