Lismore 2-7 Sarsfields(Cork) 0-5
Main Sponsor Eammons Place (Koochie)
The Lismore Senior Camogie team captured the Munster Intermediate Club Title for the Fourth time in style on Saturday last November 8th as they overcame Corks Sarsfields by a 2-02 margin. Lismore who were going for their fourth Munster Title and who are currently All Ireland Intermediate Champions were going into this game as favourites, but were not complacent as any Cork team and especially when you are playing them in their own County are no push-overs.
Throw in for this game was set for a 1.30pm start under the guidance of Tipperary referee Ger Browne in Fermoy GAA Grounds. Conditions for this game was heavy underfoot due to the heavy rain fall the night before and the Lismore girls who won the toss chose to iplay with the light breeze on the day. From the throw in of the ball the Lismore girls were on the attack and were threatening the Sarsfields back line for the first five minutes of the game, but were unable to capitalize. On the fifth minute a ball that was sent in from outfield into the hand of Cathriona McGlone which she caught and turned and making no mistake sending it whistling to the back of the Sarsfields net. Lismore were now on a roll and two minutes later another ball caught by the speedy McGlone which she slotted over the bar. A minute later wing forward Nicola Morrissey pointed. All this time the Sars back line was under severe pressure and were unable to clear the Lismore attack. On the twelfth minute Lismores centre forward Aoife Hannon was on the run and scored Lismores next point while a minute later scored another from a free and another on the eighteenth from a free.
Sarsfields gathered their momentum and started to come into the game after a twenty minute bombardment from Lismore and came on the attack and put the Lismore under pressure which they duly handled under the guidance of centre back Shauna Kiernan who kept her lines of defence in order along with the bravery of goal-keeper Tanya Morrissey who pulled off saves that any goal keeper would be proud of. Only one point from the Sars side was scored on the nineteenth minute, but did not reflect the attack that the Leesiders were making on the Lismore defence who kept their discipline and dealt with what came to them.
The second half began with a few positional changes on the Lismore side with Aoife Hannon going in the forward position while Caithriona McGlone moved out to the wing and Nicola Morrissey in the centre forward position in place of Graiine Kenneally who went centre field in place of Sharon Williams who went on the other wing forward position. In this half it was Sars who were out of the traps first and scored the first point of the half on the 33rd minute and again on the 34th and were putting the Lismore backs under pressure once more in which they did not relent to and kept their discipline. On the 35th minute Aoife Hannon scored Lismores first score of the half from a free and a minute later Sars replied with another point from play. There was some great intensity of play at this stage and a Laura Buckley pull on the ball on the seventh minute which sent the ball whistling towards the Sars goal mouth just skimmed past the post. From the puck out the ball was won by team captain Shona Curran which she passed into the awaiting Aoife Hannon which she converted leaving the score reading with ten minutes gone 1-7 to 0-04. On the fifteenth minute the second goal of the game was scored from a ball that was won by Ruth Geoghegan who made no mistake and hand passed it into the Sars goal. This rattled the Sars confidence and were unable to reply to the Lismore attack and only scored their final point on the 25th minute. The Lismore selectors were able to introduce their remaining members of the squad on the 26th minute and were crowned Munster Champions for and an impressive four years on a score line of Lismore 2-07 Sarsfields 0-05.
The "Trixie Toomey" Cup was presented to the Lismore Captain Shona Curran by Munster Council's Eamonn Browne and David Ryan, and was coming back over the Blackwater for it's fourth year. Prior to this presentation the Player of the match was announced which was presented to Centre Back Shauna Kiernan
