Laurel Hill vs. Doon.
On Wednesday, the 28 November 2012, the senior girl’s camogie squad travelled to Ballybrickin for their Munster semi-final. A bus load of 31 girls left the dock road at 9.40am heading off to County Limerick. They arrived around 11am; the girls quickly got togged off eager to play the match. They were on the pitch soon after, doing their warm ups. The girls seemed excited, yet nervous. They knew it was going to be a tough match as Doon had beaten them before, but that didn’t faze them.
The starting whistle blew, at 11.45 and the match began. Within the first five minutes Doon scored their first point. However this didn’t unnerve the girls, they were focused and ready for a tough match. Minutes later Laurel Hill scored their first goal and certainly not their last! By the end of the first half the girls were winning by an amazing 3-5 to 0-3. The half time whistle blew and they had a ten minute break.
After halftime they came back on the pitch and you could tell the girls were playing to win. The whistle blew and the second half began. The Doon girls weren’t giving up so easily though, they scored a surprising goal during the second half but that didn’t bother our girls. Laurel Hill came back and scored a fourth goal! The girls won the match with the final score being 4-12 to 1-3. This could not have happened without the dedicated coaching of Mr McKenna. Thanks to him, the girls are now on their way to a Munster final! The date is not yet confirmed but we at TopButton will let you know the minute we find out. Well done today girls and best of luck in the Munster final!
