Camogie Round-Up | Newcastle West get title defence up and running with victory as Ahane avenge last years semi-final defeat

The 2022 Neville Jewellers Senior Camogie Championship began over the weekend.

All eight sides in the Senior Camogie Championship got their 2022 journey underway on Saturday, with holders Newcastle West getting off to the perfect start

In group two, holders NCW were tested against a strong Bruff side, but managed to secure a five point victory. The game ended 2-14 to 1-12, with 2020 Intermediate champions Bruff able to take many positives away from their performance.

Elsewhere in the group, Granagh-Ballingarry’s clash with Na Piarsaigh ended in the home side’s favour, as they ran out 1-15 to 1-9 winners. It was a tight affair in the second half, with only two points separating the side with fifteen to play until the 2017 champions pulled away to secure the two points.

That leaves Newcastle West and Granagh as joint leaders ahead of game week two, which will take place in a fortnight’s time.

2020 winners and last year’s finalists Killeedy were dealt an early blow in group one as they lost 1-18 to 3-10 to Ahane. It was a dominant display from 2018 champions Ahane, buoyed by the return of Niamh Mulcahy as they were seven points to the good at half-time.

Killeedy kept knocking on the door however, with two goals in the last six minutes but Ahane held on to secure the perfect start to their season.

Crecora were also successful in the opening round as they got the better of newly-promoted Cappamore with a six point, 2-13 to 2-7 win.

That leaves Crecora and Ahane as the joint leaders in group one ahead of their meeting on September 3.
