Four teams do battle again tomorrow as the Dublin Senior 2 and Inter 2 Camogie Championships Close
Dublin Inter 2 Camogie Championship Final
Naomh Olaf v St. Vincents C
Sunday, October 9th. 1:00pm. Naomh Peregrine
The opening game in last weekend’s Camogie triple header at the Iveagh Grounds ended in a tied result with the score finishing Naomh Olaf 1-06 St. Vincents C 0-09. Which set up a replay to finally decide the Champions in the Inter 2 Camogie Championship. We’d mentioned Olaf’s fighting spirit in our build up coming into the original tie. And in comparison to the Round 1 game between these two sides this one was worthy of the Championship Final billing. They do it all again tomorrow at Naomh Peregrine.
Back in August St. Vincents were 4-12 to 1-07 winners, but since that round Oalfs have grown in every game, Seeing off Kilmacud Crokes B and Ballinteer St. John’s B. They battled a strong Lucan Sarsfields B side in the semi to reach today’s decider against Vincents and now both sides will do it all again in a replay. Only one score seperated the sides at half time with Vincents shading a 0-05 to 0-04 lead. And things were as tight on the restart. Olafs hit the net on 41 minutes to give themselves a 2 score lead and at the midway point of the half were 0-03 in front. But Vincents would reel off three unanswered to finish the game in a tie.
Dublin Senior 2 Camogie Championship Final
Ballinteer St. Johns v Cuala
Sunday, Octoer 9th. 2:00pm. Abbottstown
In the last of the three deciders last week we saw another Camogie Championship ending in a draw and going to a replay. At the final whistle Ballinteer St. Johns and Cuala were tied at 2-17 to 3-14. Three points seperated the sides at half time with Ballinteer having the 1-10 to 1-07 advantage.
At full time Cuala had managed to claw back that 3 point deficit with the second half scoreline being 1-07 to 2-07 meaning the final score of 2-17 to 3-14 had this game set up for what will be an exciting replay tomorrow afternoon at Abbottstown.
Both the games tomorrow at Naomh Peregrine and the National Sports Campus in Abbottstown are free of admission and the Dublin Camogie County Board welcome anyone to come along and attend.
