On Saturday the 12th of April, the first U12 Camogie Blitz of the season took place with Tramore GAA Club as the hosts to six teams. Attendance on a beautiful spring morning were Ferrybank, De la Salle, Roanmore, Butlerstown, St Mollerans/ Clonea and Tramore, all providing the camogie players.
In total there were 72 girls playing and the standard of camogie was a joy to savour. Three pitches were set up and thanks goes to the coaches and parents who assisted in erecting the goals and setting out the necessary flags.
The Tramore girls commenced with a match against Ferrybank. The skills honed over the last number of weeks stood to the Tramore team and after great play in the full forward line, there were a number of goals scored to raise the green flags. While all the girls contributed handsomely, a special mention goes to Keri Griffin for her two goal salvo in the match.
Roanmore were next up and again the standard of play was high and Tramore again acquitted themselves very well.
With the astro truf free, the remainder of the Tramore matches were played on that pitch, with Del La Salle the first opponents. The Tramore girls showed some fine skills and dogged defence to remain in the game while also asking stern questions of the De la Salle team. This match ended in a fair draw. With the speed of the astro turf, the ladies learned the value of keeping the sliothar moving at all times.
St Mollerans/ Clonea were next up and the Tramore team ran out winners with a constant threat up front and a number of goals scored.
The final match was against Butlerstown. This match ebbed and flowed from one end to the other. Again the clean hitting skills were in evidence and after a keenly fought contest, the spoils were shared with a two goal draw.
The girls next outing is on the 26th of April with a visit to Roanmore. Training is each Wednesday from 6 to 7pm. All are welcome.
