On Wednesday evening, the under 15 camogie team lined out against St. Catherines for their first game of the Imokilly Summoner League. On Saturday morning, they played Erin’s Own in the second game. Bride Rovers won both matches by a very comfortable margin. They played extremely well, showing good team work in terms of passing and support, they were very strong in defence, and their shooting was very accurate with plenty of long range points and well-taken goals. The opposition on both days played very well but Bride Rovers’ were the stronger side and deserved winners.Their third match will be against Castlelyons, details to be confirmed.

Kanturk 2-21 Bride Rovers 6-7.
We met Kanturk in a league game on Sunday evening on what turned out to be a fine summer’s evening. It was a very open game with lots of fine play and scores on both sides. We played some lovely football at times, with both midfielders and all our forwards getting on the scoresheet.
Our defence worked hard too throughout, with Madison making some great saves in goal, and every one of the defenders getting in blocks and making good clearances during the game.
It was a great performance, as we were missing a few players. So we can definitely use it as a springboard for the championship games that we have coming up in the near future.
Team: Madison Parle, Erin O’Keeffe, Aine Cashman, Aoife O’Riordan, Trish O’Sullivan, Emma Hazelwood, Emma Roche (0-1), Grainne Noonan (0-1), Katie Connor (2-0), Sinead Walsh(2-1), Katie Kelleher(0-2), Aislinn O’Connor(0-1), Elaine Culloty (2-2)
