Borris-Ileigh Junior Camogie

Semi-Final Match Report

Borris-Ileigh Junior Camogie team secured their place in the County Final on Saturday afternoon with a win over Fethard on a 1-8 to 2-3 score line. It was an even more exciting match than their first encounter with both teams’ again displaying skill and commitment. Borris-Ileigh overcame a sluggish start to finish in fine style. After a very wet morning the match started with dry conditions over head. Fethard had a strong wind for the first half. They opened the scoring with a point followed by a goal;they scored two more points and another goal in the first half, while Borris-Ileigh scored three points. Borris-Ileigh went into the dressing rooms at half time down 6 points; however they came out fighting with the goalie and the backs putting on a great defensive display keeping Fethard scoreless for the second half. While the Borris-Ileigh midfield and forwards fought hard clocking up a goal and five points. There was little or no wind for the second half and the rain came back making it tough for both teams. Fethard had their chances in the dying minutes but in their search for goals they gave up point scoring opportunities. The last few minutes of injury time seemed like a lifetime for the Borris-Ileigh supporters. The replay was almost a mirror image of the first encounter where Borris-Ileigh had the upper hand in the first half and Fethard came back to secure a draw in the second half. Borris-Ileigh now face Newport who defeated the Silvermines in the other semi-final on a 1-08 to 2-3 score line. The final will be held in the Camogie Grounds, The Ragg on Sunday 30th October @ 2 p.m.
