Templeglantine too strong for Granagh Ballingarry in Junior B camogie final

Sunday 1st October 2017 in Tournafulla

Templeglantine topped a fine season with an emphatic 3-9 to 1-1 win in the Junior B Camogie Championship Final on Sunday last. The game was played in Tournafulla and despite playing into a strong breeze in the first half the West Limerick side were dominant throughout.

Shannyn Sheehan opened the scoring on 5 minutes followed by a point from captain Ellie Moloney. Just after the mid-way mark a free from Shannyn Sheehan came off the crossbar and the waiting Brigid Riordan struck well to give the keeper no chance. Further points from Michelle Curtin and Sheehan extended Templeglantine lead with a late free converted by Lisa Moran the only score for Granagh Ballingarry in the half.

Michelle Curtin opened the second half scoring for Templeglantine but Granagh Ballingarry looked to have resuscitated their challenge on seven minutes into the half when Lisa Moran struck a free low and hard into the box finding the back of the net.

Templeglantine responded immediately and broke down the right from the puck out and when Michelle Curtin was found in space she finished to the back of the net and restored her team’s advantage 2-5 to 1-1.

From there on it was one way traffic and when U16 star Siobhán Sheehy followed a well taken point with a long range goal to extend the lead to 3-7 to 1-1 there was no way back for Granagh Ballingarry.

Aoife Curtin joined her sister Michelle on the scoreboard and a final point from Shannyn Sheehan closed out the game. Captain Ellie Moloney received the trophy to the delight of their sizable group of supporters.
