Aoife Power in full flight for Scariff Ogonnelloe against Sixmilebridge
Clare Senior Camogie Championship – Saturday, 25th July 2020 (Clooney/Quin GAA)
Scariff/Ogonnelloe 2-21 Sixmilebridge 1-6
Scariff Ogonnelloe started off the defence of their Clare and Munster Championship with a win over Sixmilebridge in a blustery Clooney on Saturday evening. Mairead Scanlon opened the scoring with a point from a free.
Sixmilebridge, with the wind at their backs in the opening half, replied with a point from Chloe Morey from a free.
Even though Scariff Ogonnelloe were playing against the wind, they had the upper hand, scoring five unanswered points, Marian Rodgers(2), Scanlon(2) and Aoife Power all getting their names on the scoresheet, with Niamh Lyons adding from play for the Bridge.
Sixmilebridge rallied however scoring 1-2, Lyons from play and a long-range Morey free, with her next free being sent straight to the back of the net to put them ahead by the minimum.
This proved to be their best period though as Scariff Ogonnelloe piled on the pressure with Marian Rodgers firing to the back of the net with the next passage of play and Scanlon and Power(2) adding points to leave the halftime score at 1-9 to 1-4.
With the wind at their backs after the break Scariff Ogonnelloe dominated, with the backs not giving the Sixmilebridge forwards any time on the ball, and the forwards duly converting possession into scores.
Clever play and accurate passing led to Marian Rodgers scoring her second goal, and all six forwards and one midfielder adding to the tally: Rodgers (1-1), Scanlon(0-5f), Jenifer Daly, Cliona McNamara, Alva Rodgers, Power, Rachael Minogue, and Lynda Daly (0-1)each, with Sixmilebridge scoring just 2 points in the second half.
