oughal Camogie travelled to Sliabh Rua on Sunday night for a game at 6.30.
Youghal lacked hunger in the first half and played at an uneven pace. The Back line found it very difficult with a strong sun in their eyes for the first 30 minutes,
but Ashleigh Cocororan had a fantastic game in wing back position dominating the line and having her best game to date.
Shona Cunningham had a great game after coming from a Cork intermidiete game earlier that day, and partnered Niamh Quill in mid field, a new position for Niamh who got on the score board.
Scores also came from most of the forward line including Kelly McCarthy, Shannen Joyce and Siobhan Downing.
The first half score line read 2.6 Youghal to 2.3 Sliabh Rua
The second half was much better for the Youghal side, Ashleigh Cocoran who had dominated the first half was moved to centre back.
Player of the match must go to the wonderful Roisin O’Keeffe who could be found all over the field supporting all her players throughout the game.
A change of position in the second half was made with Niamh Quill moving to the half back line and Chloe Daly moving into mid field, a good move made from the side line which enabled the forwards to receive more ball.
Subsitute Leah Broderick had a great run when coming on – scoring 4 unanswered points in a row.
Youghal 4.15 to Sliabh Rua 3.5
