Aghada welcomed Cloughduv to Rostellan on Tuesday evening. This was Aghada first championship match at this grade and their second year playing minor camogie. It was the first time this year we had the full panel of players available for a minor game. Jim Daly from Youghal refereed the match, with the assistance of Tommy foley and Ian Rose on the posts.
From the throw in Aghada won possession and fed fast ball into the forwards. Aghada registered a fast point and from the puck out Agahda gained possession and scored another point. Agahda had settled into the game and had 1-5 scored before Cloughduv scored their first point. For the last 10 minutes of the half Cloughduv registered a further 2 points while Aghada scored 3 more points. Half time score Aghada 1-08 to 0-03 points. The second half was a tighter affair with both teams well matched. Agahda scored 4 points and Cloughduv scored 5 points. The difference on the night was Aghada registered 1-04 in the first 9 minutes of the game. They held their lead and never looked like conceeding a goal. It was a great performance from the goalkeeper and the 6 backs. The mid field worked throughout the game and forwards never let Cloughduv clear easy ball. It was a great team performance on the night.
