Yellas battle the Kingdom to semi-final

Wednesday, 23 August 2017

Yellas battle the Kingdom to semi-final thumbnail Sara Louise Carr in action on Saturday for Clonduff camogs against An Riocht at Mayobridge.

CLONDUFF camogs travelled over to Mayobridge on Saturday afternoon (19 August) to kick off their senior championship campaign against a very determined and skilful An Riocht team.

Clonduff...2-22
An Riocht...1-06

An Riocht got off to the better start with an early goal and two points to no score.

This early lead really gave the Kingdom girls some belief and they rattled the majority of the Clonduff team early on.

This resulted in the Clonduff girls displaying nervousness on the ball with no-one really taking a lead for the Yellas.

An Riocht were playing with a strong wind at their backs.

Their 'keeper's puckouts, which were landing between the half and full forward line, caused major problems for the Clonduff girls.

In the second half two goals from Sara Louise Carr would see off the Kingdom girls, but they continued to fire over some excellent points from play showing the spectators what this team is really capable of.

Clonduff will now face rivals Liatroim in the semi-final in two weeks, with the venue to be confirmed.
