Hazelwood Heroines Secure Senior Camogie Final Place

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.
