Intermediate Camogie Championship 2009
Ratoath 1-5 Donaghmore/Ashbourne 2-6
Donaghmore/Ashbourne went into this game knowing that they had to win to stay in contention for a final place later in the year. They were determined to reverse the earlier meeting where Ratoath had beaten them on home soil. Don/Ash started well and won the ball from the throw in with the new partnership of Claire Corcoran and Sinead Baxter. The visiting team worked well in the middle and got the ball to our resident centre forward Lizzy Lynch who is hard to mark at the best of times. Lizzy won a free on 4 minutes and converted for our first point in the match, but unfortunately when the ball came down the other end it was not dealt with and resulted in a goal for Ratoath. This seemed to get the girls going and Don/Ash went on to score two great goals in the 10th minute (Ali Fitzgerald) and 18th minute (Bronagh Gaughan). Having done the hard work Don/Ash let Ratoath back into the match by giving away silly frees in easy positions for Ratoath to score. Don/Ash finished the first half with Lizzy Lynch converting another free just before half time and went in on level terms with Ratoath.
After talks from the Management team and the Captain at half time Donaghmore/Ashbourne went back out with a renewed determination not to leave Ratoath without a win. It sounds like an easy task but not when you are playing a team like Ratoath that have improved so much since the league campaign. They have some very good young talented players. Lizzy Lynch opened the scoring in the second half with a free on 31 minutes. Ratoath pressed hard and probably should have scored early in the second half but for the good work of the Don/Ash backs and some great saves from goalkeeper Aideen Ferry. Maura Roche took a great point on the 39th minute when she pulled hard on the ground. Don/Ash squandered chances to go ahead by more but missed some frees which would normally go over. Lizzy Lynch got the last 2 scores of the match finishing with a tally of 5 points. Overall this was a game played with great heart and each and every girl out there knew they did not want to loose. The Don/Ash backs played really well and did not concede a score in the second half. Maybe we should not pick any one person for special praise but on this occasion Aideen Ferry must be chosen for her outstanding performance in goals.
Team:- A. Ferry; S. Ferry, E. Tormey (Captain), S. Keegan; E. Keaveny, L. Keegan, D. Burnell; C. Corcoran, S. Baxter; B. Gaughan (1-0) E. Lynch (0-5 4f), J. Long; M. Roche (0-1), A. Fitzgerald (1-0), A. O’Neill. Subs:- Lorna Dervan for A. Fitzgerald (59 mins)
Under 15 League
Boardsmill 1-2 V Ratoath 4-5
The standard of play from this Under 15 League would match any of the Senior Championship games , the quality of play was a credit to both teams. From the score line it would let you think that Ratoath ran away with the game, but Boardsmill gave a solid performance throughout and matched Ratoath with their skill. The McCann sisters of Ratoath caused the majority of the headaches for Boardsmill and they were also helped with good displays from Louise Gaffney. Boardsmills Shona White covered a lot of ground for her team and her backs also all played well.
