The St Kevin’s team that won the U16 Camogie Championship at the weekend

The Louth U16 Camogie Championship final took place on Saturday last with St Kevin’s taking on the Blackrock/St Brides combination team in Ballygassan.

Despite an afternoon of heavy rain, the Naomh Fionnbarra pitch was in excellent condition and great credit must go to the club for their efforts in preparing it for the final.

The Blackrock/Brides side were first out of the traps but failed to convert with their chances and the opening 10 minutes saw a very evenly matched affair until a well taken St Kevin’s goal settled the Philipstown outfit down.

Half time saw the Kevin’s ahead by two goals but the Blackrock/Brides had a number of spells which saw them put their opponents under serious pressure.

The second half continued in much the same fashion as the first but Brides/Blackrock, with a younger team, began to feel the pressure as St Kevin’s stretched their lead.

The last 10 minutes saw Blackrock/Brides lay siege to the St Kevin’s goals but some excellent goalkeeping and defending kept them at bay and the match ended with St Kevin’s running out 8–8 to 2–4 winners, adding the U16 crown to the senior title they won recently.

The cup was presented afterwards by Lorraine Young, Chairperson of the Louth Camogie County Board. Lorraine thanked the hosts, Naomh Fionnbarra and St Anne’s who stewarded the event along with both teams for an exciting match.
