 Borrisoleigh Camogie Club News 

Our under 14’s had their second championship game of the season on Friday the 20th April at home against Boherlahan. They had a poor result however the girls should be proud of their team effort with everyone playing to the best of their ability. They fought hard throughout the game never lost spirit and didn’t give away frees, they were up against an older, stronger and more experienced team. In spite of this they managed to keep them almost scoreless in the second half. They had their third match of the championship against Ballingarry again the results didn’t reflect the effort and team spirit that they displayed. They put on a good performance and gave away no frees. The under 14’s will have their fourth match of the championship on Tuesday 1st May at 7pm at home against Moycarkey. Best of luck girls.
