St.Canices Kilkenny Credit Union Senior County Final

Mullinavat              vs           Thomastown                 

Venue:  Ballyhale 1:15pm     Referee: Eoghan Ó Riain

For the third season in a row. Thomastown and Mullinavat will do battle to see who will claim the senior camogie honors for 2015. The two sides already clashed this season in the league final. The game played in awful weather conditions will go down as a classic encounter. Thomastown made the better start and led 1-08 to 0-02 points at half time. Mullinavat really came out running in the second half and ran out 2-10 to 1-10 winners.

Since that classic encounter Mullinavat faced Windgap in the County semi final last weekend. Against a strong Windgap side, Mullinavat emerged victorious on a 3-16 to 1-14 score line. In the other semi final Thomastown bounced back brilliantly from there league final defeat and recorded a good victory over a strong St. Lachtains/Lisdowney side on a 1-16 to 1-06 score line.

Both teams have lethal forward lines among their ranks well capable of racking up big scores. Mullinavat will need be aware of the threat that the Thomastown forward line processes with Anna Farrell in outstanding form, similarly Thomastown will need to keep an eye on Julie Ann Malone also in terrific form. This game has all the hallmarks of being a classic encounter and one very hard to call. I feel this game will be decided on whose back line will be able to keep the opposing forward line quiet. This game could go right down to the wire and a draw could not be ruled out.

Also this weekend the Intermediate semi final replay between St Brigids and Rower Inistioge will take place in Clara on Saturday at 12 pm. After playing out a thrilling draw after extra time last weekend this game is one not to be missed. Tullaroan will have a close eye on this game to see who they will play in the final next weekend.  Also on Saturday afternoon the under 16 Roinn B County Final will take place in Clara at 1.30pm. This clash sees St.Fiacres taking on Young Irelands in what should be a great encounter.

On Sunday morning Carrickshock will take on Conahy Shamrocks in the Junior County semi final in Ballyhale at 11.15am. Both sides recorded good victories last weekend with Conahy Shamrock claiming the All County league title over Mooncoin, while Carrickshock defeated Emeralds in the quarter final last weekend. Both sides will fight out for place in the final next weekend against Young Irelands.

Please get out and support your club sides this weekend with great games in prospect.
