Junior Camogie Team Makes it Historic Double defeating Na Fianna 2012-10-01 16:27:00

Junior A Camogie Final - St Brigids 0-09 Na Fianna 1-04

It was a great day for the Naomh Bríd Camogie section on Saturday with a fantastic win from both the Junior and Senior Camogie teams.

The Junior game kicked off to a fighting start against Na Fianna who put the girls in red up to the challenge. With the absence of Shauna O'Sullivan and Sinead Daffy in the forwards, the Naomh Bríd girls put in 150% to ensure the cup would be coming back to Russell Park this year! The always reliable Siobhan Cahill put in a fantastic game in midfield as she scored a massive 7 points! To secure the cup, Ciara Deegan (Captain) and Michelle Cummins put over fantastic points so that the girls in red could finally celebrate the well deserved win!

It was a very close game but it went in Naomh Bríd's favor on the day as the passion and fight was so strong for the title of Junior A Champions. Ciara Deegan was then presented with the cup by Marie O'Brien, gave a great speech and held up the cup with pride as the panel cheered with delight! Every player on the panel, from the goalkeeper, backs, midfielders and forwards, gave everything they had on the pitch in the 60 minutes of the final and throughout the championship games.

A big thank you to all the supporters who came to the final and to the other championship games! The support was very much appreciated! Another big thank you to Brendan Roche for the fantastic photographs he has taken throughout the season both in Championship and League matches! You never let us down Bren!

The girls on the team would like to give a very special 'Thank You' to Aodh, Kevin, Mick and Anne for their very hard work this season. If it wasn't for their belief in the team we wouldn't have the title and the cup this year!
