Waterford 2-09 Kildare 1-05
History was made once more for Waterford camogie and indeed for Lismore camogie in Croke Park as the Waterford Intermediate Camogie team overcame Kildare in the Liberty Insurance All Ireland Intermediate Final on Sunday last. Lismore camogie club were honoured to have Caithriona McGlone as team captain and to have her team mates Nicola Morrissey and Shona Curran playing a major part in capturing the historic All Ireland title.
The game its self began at a very slow pace for Waterford with Kildare registering the first score of the game with a goal on the third minute followed by two more points from them before Waterfords Beth Carton got them on the score sheet on the thirteenth minute. Waterford began to settle into the game after this and some points from Lorraine Bray and Jennie Simpson reduced the margin to one point with five minutes remaining in the half. Shona Curran was introduced in replace of Dungarvans Dawn Power on the 25th minute and was playing at mid-field grabbed the sliotar and drove it into the forward line where Cappoquins Aisling power won and duly struck a whopper to the back of the Kildare net. This gave the waterford side some great confidence going into the second half with a two point cusion.
The second half began with a 20m free on the second minute of the half awarded to Waterford where youngster Beth Carton stood over the ball and struck a hard low ball which landed once more in the Kildare net. Things looked very bright at this stage for the Deise girls. Kildare tried hard but they could not get enough possesion into their forward line and it took them 22 minute to register their first score of the half. Waterford drove on and finished the game on a score line of 2-09 to Kildares 1-05.
History was made and Waterford had won the All Ireland Intermediate title which entitles them to play at Senior level next year. Lismore are proud to have the captaincy (Caithriona McGlone). Also when Waterford won the Junior in 2011 Lismore also had the captaincy (Nicola Morrissey) and incidently when Waterford won their first U16 title in 2003 Lismore once again had the captaincy(Laura Buckley), so more history to be added for the Lismore club.
Huge Congratulations to our three girls Caithriona, Nicola and Shona and the Waterford team and management and thanks to all who traveled on the day to support our girls.
