Athenry and Scariff through

THERE were mixed fortunes for two Galway schools in the All-Ireland junior colleges camogie semi-finals played on Saturday.

In the A decider, Presentation Athenry booked their final date with Coláiste Bríde Enniscorthy after conquering Munster champions Presentation Bandon at Brinny (2-2 to 0-5).

In the B competition, Athenry Vocational School were forced to surrender to an extremely talented Scariff Community School at Scariff (7-8 to 1-0).

Pres Athenry will be appearing in their first junior final since 1977 and Noreen Coen was hugely instrumental in the win, notching 1-2.

Elsewhere, the Clare champions ended the B contest early on.

They led 3-5 to 0-0 at the break. And with other green flags from Mairead Scanlon (two), Laura Brody, Mairead Dooley, Ann Marie Fitzgerald and Ciara McDermott, they secured their passage to the final with ease.

Meanwhile, in Division One of the National League, Wexford secured two points from their outing to Corrigan Park beating Antrim, 8-13 to 0-4. Michelle Hearne was their top scorer bagging four goals.

In Division Two, Waterford succumbed to Laois at Walsh Park, 2-5 to 1-5, a goal after the break from Sinead Lenihan proving to be the all-important score for the visitors.

Wexford’s second outfit had too much firepower for Antrim when they ran out easy winners on a scoreline of 2-16 to 1-0.

Wicklow came away with a significant 4-10 to 0-3 win over Cavan.

A pair of goals from Vicky O’Gara plus 1-4 each from Pamela Maher and Ger Norton secured this victory.
