Cahir Camogie Club Into County Final

Report / Photo Pattie Costigan....The Cahir Junior A team are through to the County final after a convincing win over Drom. A strong wind in the first half saw a good deal of pressure on the back line but with great defending from Kirsty Arbuckle and a great all-round performance from Laura Dillon, the sliothar was sent back down to the forward line where Caral Casey pointed for Cahir's opening score. Drom were on the hunt straight away and leveled with a well-taken point. Lovely play between Aisling McCarthy and Aishling Moloney saw the scores advance again with a fine point from Aisling.
Grainne Quirke gave a lovely pass into the awaiting Roisin Howard who again popped over a point, While the same young lady added to the Cahir tally with two more points from frees. Drom advanced and breached their strong defence and brought the game level again with a well-taken goal. Between the first water break and half-time both teams were trading points with Cahir's Aishling Moloney, Róisín Howard and Caral Casey all scoring to bring the score at half-time to Cahir 0-9 Drom 1-6. The second half started with Cahir first to the ball and a lovely pass from Ms. Moloney to Caral Casey,which saw the uprights being split for a super point. Any sliothar that the Drom players carried into the Cahir danger zone was quickly dealt with by full back Aoife Casey and center back Emma Buckley, while the birthday girl Aoife Cashman was having a great game disposing of any stray ball that came in her direction. Two more points from the hurleys of Howard and Casey were registered before a beauty of a pass from Shauna O'Donnell found the safe hands of Aisling McCarthy, who sent a rasper from her shortened hurl past the Drom goalie. Cahir went on a roll then with all positions on the field being dominated by the Green and White and the ref's final whistle saw a final scoreline of Cahir 5-23 to Drom 2-7.
