Clare Senior Camogie Championship – Saturday, 15th August 2020

Kilkishen/Bodyke 1-15 St Joseph’s 3-6

Round 3 of the Senior Championship got underway in wet and thundery conditions in Cratloe on Saturday evening. 

Kilkishen/Bodyke were first to register a score with a point from Siobhan Lenihan. Ciara Duggan replied with a pointed free for St. Josephs before Lenihan converted a free minutes later.

Strong defensive work from Eimear Casey and Eimear Harrington resulted in the first green flag of the day, as Muirne Ní Chonaill struck for goal, putting her side two points up.  

Kilkishen/Bodyke hit back with 1-2 without reply from Aoife Ryan and Kate O’Gorman to go three points clear heading into the first water break. Muirne Ní Chonaill goaled to the net on the advantage to level matters up.

Kilkishen/Bodyke’s Siobhan Lenihan converted two frees in the 24th & 29th minute time to take a two-point advantage at the break on a score line 1-6 to 2-1.

St. Josephs opened the second half with a pointed free from Duggan for a foul on Orlaith Lynch. Muirne Ní Chonaill tagged on a point minutes later to level matters. Kilkishen/Bodyke battled hard and quickly responded with three unanswered points.

Hannah Meaney pulled one back for the parish side before Kate Lynch and Aoife Ryan notched up two more points on the water break. At the resumption of play, Lenihan added three more points two from frees.

St. Josephs backs Megan O Brien, Kate Dillon and Eimear Casey worked tirelessly and were rewarded for their efforts with a goal from Ciara Duggan from a free to the corner net.

And though Louise Woods and Siofra Ní Chonaill added two more points in the closing minutes, it wasn’t enough to dent the Kilkishen/Bodyke lead.
