Senior Championship 

Gurteen: Kilkishen/Bodyke 1-15 Feakle Killanena 0-9

Kilkishen Bodyke, continued their impressive start to the 2022 championship with a well-deserved team performance on Friday evening in Gurteen, beating east Clare rivals Feakle Killanena on a score-line of 1-15 to 0-9.

Kilkishen Bodyke stated the better, with 4 points inside the first 8 mins from Siobhan Linehen free and points for plan from Kate Lynch (2) and County half back Alanah Ryan, before Feakle Killanena scored their first from a Lorna McNamara Free. In the opening half Kilkishen Bodyke were finding it easier to find scores than their opponents. The crucial score came in the 19th min, when the Feakle Killanena defence who had being playing well failed to deal with a through ball from midfield and Aoife lynch was on had to fire to the net to extend their lead to 1-7 to 0-4. Lorna McNamara responded with two excellent points from play, only to be cancelled out by points from play from Kate O Gorman and Shauna Doyle. HT score Kilkishen Bodyke 1-10 Feakle Killanena 0-6.

As in their first-round game against Truagh Clonlara, Feakle Killanena grew into the game   after the break and fired the first 3 points of the second half with a point from play from Shauna Canny and 2 frees from Lorna McNamara. This closed the gap to 4 points by the 13th minute. Any thoughts of tight finish were quickly ended by Kilkishen Bodyke with points in a minute from play by Shauna Doyle and substitute Roisin Minogue. Feakle Killanean would not score for the final 18 mins. Roisin Minogue again scored in the 23rd min from play and Kilkishen had 2 final points from play from Kate O Gorman to leave the final score 1-15 -0-7.

Kilkishen Bodyke have little time for rest as the now face table toppers Truagh Clonlara next week in Shannon. For Feakle Killanena who have a bye next weekend, they will be glad of an extra week to prepare for the final 2 rounds.  For the second week in a row Feakle Killanena’s failure to create a goal scoring chance when the fought their way back into the game proved crucial. Kilkishen Bodyke were impressive throughout with fine individual performances from Eilis Whitney, Alanah Ryan and Caoimhe Kelly in defence and up from Kate lynch, Kate O Gorman, with Roisin Minogue impressive when introduced. For Feakle Killanena Eileen Daly, Laura McGrath and Sophie Conway were again to the fore. From an attacking perspective, they were again too reliant on County player Lorna McNamara for scores, and for them to progress they will have to find a better spread of scorers.

Killanena GAA: Scariff Ogonnelloe 0-15 St Josephs 2-5

On Friday evening last St. Joseph’s Doora Barefield served notice of their determination to be a force to be reckoned with in this year’s Championship as they commenced their first game against reigning county and Munster Champions Scarriff Ogonnelloe in Killanena.

Despite the flattering score line Scarriff Ogonnelloe notched up last week in their first-round game against Kilmaley, this week they earned every score against St. Joseph’s.

A lightning-fast start saw Scarriff Ogonnelloe extend their lead to four points from Lynda Daly and Aisling Corbett courtesy to two frees before Joseph’s Hannah Meaney split the posts from a placed ball. It was to be similar style for remainder of first half from same players until corner forward Ciara Guilfoyle raised the green flag for the maroon and white girls breaking at half time Scarriff Ogonnelloe 0-10 St. Joseph’s 1-3

With only four points of a margin, both sides had to dig deep in the second half. Free taker Aisling Corbett for the East Clare amalgamation added two more to her tally as well as Mairéad Scanlon and Lynda Daly adding three more between them, but Joseph’s were nowhere near ready to throw in the towel and the ever-accurate Hannah Meaney converted two more points from play before substitute Ciara Duggan doubled on a high ball in the air to rattle the back of Rachel Daly’s net in the closing minutes of the game finishing Scarriff/Ogonnelloe 0-15 St. Joseph’s 2-5

Next weekend sees Scarriff Ogonnelloe meet Newmarket on Fergus while St vJoseph’s make acquaintances with Sixmilebridge.
