Winning Momentum Rolls on for Clare Juniors

The Clare Junior Camogie side suffered no hangover from their Provincial success just a fortnight ago overcoming Mayo in convincing fashion in the first round of the Premier Junior All Ireland Camogie Championship in Cusack Park.

The All west encounter got off to a pulsating start with the sides level 3 points a piece on the 10 minute mark. However the decisive score in the 19th minute when Feakle-Kilanena ace Shauna Canny rattled the back of the Mayo net and the Banner women never looked back ensuring a 1-8 to 5 points score line at the break.

Late inclusion to the starting side at corner forward and clubmate of Canny, Regan Conway scored Clare’s second goal just 10 minutes into the second half leaving significant breathing space between the sides and from here the banner found another gear


Sixmilbridge’s Olivia Phelan added another major in the 50th minute putting Clare 17 points in front and the result beyond all doubt.

Before Midfielder Abby Walsh added a final Clare goal just ahead of the full time whistle.

The game finished 4-17 to 7 points in favour of the Banner Ladies.
