Laurel Hill 3-12
Hazelwood College Drumcollogher 0 – 3
Laurel Hill were crowned Munster Colleges Senior B Camogie champions following a comprehensive win over Hazelwood College, Dromcollogher at Caherelly on Saturday afternoon.
The well-appointed Ballybricken-Bohermore G.A.A. complex in the picturesque rolling plains of County Limerick provided the perfect setting on a pleasant afternoon for a very accomplished Limerick city school to showcase their undoubted skills.
Laurel Hill dominated the game from start to finish and despite spirited defiance from the gallant Dromcollogher college girls, they were full value for their victory margin and now march on to the All-Ireland series with justified high hopes of further success.
