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.
