Castleknock Outgunned In Camogie Minor Div.1 Championship

Castleknock 2-4 St. Vincent’s 5-14

Three games in five days proved a bridge too far for too many Castleknock players in this Minor Div.1 match against an impressive St. Vincent’s fifteen in Somerton this evening (Nov.14).

Apart from the third quarter when Castleknock matched the visitors score for score, St. Vincent’s had the edge throughout against a visibly tired home team.

St. Vincent’s hit the ground running and by half-time were already almost out of sight when leading by 3-8 1-2 and it could have been even worse for Castleknock but for some particularly solid defending under the high ball by goalkeeper Lauren Finney.

Rebecca Cassidy scored the home side’s opening point from a free on 10 minutes but it was another 15 minutes before Ebha Mooney kicked an excellent and much needed Castleknock goal. Sophie Browne then finished the half with a fine long-distance point from a free to give Castleknock some little hope going into the second-half.

Immediately after the interval Aisling Kenny drove the sliotar to the St. Vincent’s net and for one brief moment a dramatic comeback looked possible. It was not to be however as St. Vincent’s responded quickly with a goal of their own to kill off Castleknock’s short lived momentum.

Two well struck Cara Feeney points were all Castleknock had to show for all their effort after that while St. Vincent’s tagged on another 1-6 before the end.

To their credit the Castleknock players, as exemplified by Ellen Baker and Caoimhe Slevin in defence, never gave up but there’s no doubt they were beaten by the better side on the night.
