Fixture: U15 Camogie East Cork League
Teams: Cobh v Aghada
Venue: Cobh GAA Grounds Top field
Date: Tuesday 25th July 2017
The Play: Coming into U15 Imokilly League most of the Aghada panel had played in the U14B county league semi-final. They were extremely unlucky to lose to Cloughduv after extra time in the final puck of the game. They responded well when they played Youghal in the U15 league and won a score line of 3-04 to 1-02. This qualified Aghada for a play off against Cobh on Wednesday 25th July in Top field in Cobh.
From the throw in Aghada competed for every ball. Aghada had a great start and scored a goal after 3 minutes, this was followed up with a point and a further goal. Slowly Cobh steadied the ship and came more into the game. They scored 2 points of their own but the it was Aghada who got back into their stride heading towards half time . Half time score Aghada 3-06 to 0-02.
Cobh came out for the second half a more determined team. They started in a whirlwind fashion and in the first 10 minutes of the second half scored 3-01 to leave just a goal between the sides. Aghada responded with 2 points. It was a tight battle for the rest of the half, Aghada defended very well and the forwards kept the score board ticking over. Final score Aghada 5-09 to Cobh 4-03.
We wish Ali Smith the best of luck for Cork U16A Camogie on the 4th August.

Well done to our U8 girls who travelled to Fr O’Neill’s on Saturday 29th July for their 3rd blitz of the summer. All 9 girls played 3 matches against 2 teams from St Catherine’s and 1 team from Fr O’Neills. The girls are improving as a team with each blitz. Plenty of good passing to each other, blocking and striking. Great fun was had by all and a goodie bag was given by Fr O’Neills to each girl who played.
