On a cold Monday the ladies of the Hazelwood College Senior Camogie team set out on what they knew would be a very challenging Camogie Semi-Final match against Laurel Hill Secondary School, Limerick. The girls knew it would take such determination and team effort to beat Laurel Hill, but that did not faze them.
The Hazelwood side started off a great game, despite the harsh cold weather, by scoring the first point of the match. Laurel Hill came back moments later to score a goal but that didn’t throw the Hazelwood ladies off. The game went on and Hazelwood ladies were leading by one point at half time.
As the second half began the Hazelwood ladies got right back into the game and started pouring in the points ahead of Laurel Hill. The girls had a great finish to the game by beating Laurel Hill by nine points on a score line 3-11 to 2-5. This was a great win for the ladies who are now through to the Limerick A Division final.
The Final itself will take place this Saturday 17th December in Dromcollogher at 12.00, all support greatly appreciated.
Hazelwood College: 4-13
Our Lady’s Secondary School, Templemore: 0-1
Only one thing comes to mind to describe the recent performance of the Hazelwood College Senior Camogie team in the Munster Camogie Championship League. Magnificent.
On a bleak Tuesday morning the ladies of Hazelwood College set out for Tipperary in their upcoming match against Templemore. Upon arriving at the destination, they were greeted with a biting wind and a blanket of grey clouds looming in the sky overhead. The ladies however, endured the cold with a steely determination and did not let it distract them from what they were their to do, which was win.
Victory was predicted to be in the hands of Hazelwood College within the first five minutes of the match when Aoife Murray scored the first of what would be many goals for the team. This goal was the catalyst that Hazelwood College needed in order to give them the courage to work harder and push the boundaries, if possible, even more. The results were satisfactory as within the next fifteen minutes of the game, Ide Cunningham scored not one, but four points for the team and secured them the upper hand in the match.
And so the first half came and went. The girls of Hazelwood college were tired and both the team and spectators alike wondered if they would perform just as well in the second half of the game or would Templemore make a comeback. Our wondering was laid to rest as Hazelwood College played just as well, if not better, with Chloe O Brian scoring the team a goal that was followed by Sarah MacDermott who finished with burying a goal in the bottom left corner of Templemores’ net. The whistle blew and Hazelwood had won 4-13 to 0-1

Hazelwood Crowned Cork Camogie Champions
On 4th December 2014, the Hazelwood Senior Camogie team came out on top in a tough battle with Coláiste na Toirbhirte, Bandon, securing the Cork Colleges Senior Camogie Championship. The match was played in Dromcollogher, with Hazelwood holding the advantage on home turf.
From the whistle, it was clear that both teams had similar intensions, and it took 6 minutes for the first score to be registered on the board. Ellanna Mulcahy won a loose ball and fired over the bar to put the home team in the lead. Points from Mary Kate Fehin and two from Cliona O’Callaghan put Hazelwood further in the lead. Bandon forwards were restricted to three points in the first half, due to consistent defending from the Hazelwood backs. The first half was a physical battle between the sides, and the game was score for score until, after a good passage of play between the Hazelwood midfielders and half forwards, corner forward Áine Cunningham received an accurate pass and finished a low shot to the net, giving the home side a four point lead at the interval. The half time score read 1-04 to 0-03.
Hazelwood started the better side in the second half, and began to dominate all over the field. Cliona O’Callaghan put the ball in the net in the opening 5 minutes of the second half, followed by goals from Áine Cunningham and Donna Mulcahy. Despite defensive mistakes that were the cause of conceding scores, Bandon continued to fight but failed to convert all of their chances, scoring just two points in the third quarter. With Hazelwood ahead entering the final quarter of the game, they pushed on with further goals from Donna Mulcahy and Áine Cunningham and points from Cliona O’Callaghan and Mary Kate Fehin. Team captain, Donna Mulcahy, leading by example, added a point to her tally, before Áine Cunningham handled a high ball in the square and palmed to the net. Deserving player of the match, Áine Cunningham added a point to her name before finishing as the day’s top scorer with 4-01 with a fine display of goal scoring ability. Bandon got a consolation goal towards the end, put it was too little too late for the gallant South Cork side, who, to their credit never gave up until the final whistle. Strong midfield pairing Chloe O’Brien and Ellanna Mulcahy scored a point each after making runs from the centre of the pitch to close out the game, the scoreboard reading 7-10 to 1-05 in favour of Hazelwood at the final whistle.
Referee Mike Sheehan presented the cup to Hazelwood captain Donna Mulcahy on behalf of her teammates. This was a well deserved win for the Hazelwood Senior Camogie team, and hopefully will not be the last of the year ahead for this talented group of players.
