Lismore 0-2 Athenry 0-8
Under very difficult conditions in Coralstown Kinnegad on Sunday last it was a very determined Athenry team that came out as victors in the AIB Intermediate Club Semi Final propelled by the vastly experienced trio of Therese Maher, Jessica Gill and Rebecca Glynn . They led by 0-5 to 0-2 at half time, Maher scoring four points (three from frees) and Gill the other.
Lismore found it very difficult to penetrate the very strong Athenry defense and were quick to crowd out the speedy Caithriona McGlone when she was about to get possesion. The Lismore defense stood equally strong from the Athenry attack and kept a clean sheet for the game. But Lismore found it very hard to get the ball beyond their half forward line thus finding it hard to come by a score
Nicola Morrissey got Lismore off the mark at the end of the fourteenth minute and Caitriona McGlone doubled their tally six minutes later but they failed to score again, while Niamh Hannon (two) and Noreen Coen pointed to ensure Athenry the prized victory. It wasnt to be for the Lismore girls on the day.
All in Lismore camogie are very proud of the girls and their team management in their exploits and have achieved quiet allot winning the County"The Denny Buckley Cup" league, The County Championship V Gaultier and the Munster Final V Corks Newcestown which was a great achievement after being beaten in both League and County the year previous.
