Round Towers newest team the U9 Camogie had their first set of games yesterday (25/3/12). Brilliant sunshine and an early morning start courtesy of clock changes welcomed the girls onto the pitch for their first ever set of matches. This Blitz was held in Kilmacud an away venue. All girls were eager to get the match started and showed great enthusiasm right from the whistle.
Their coaches were very proud of them. Thanks to all the parents for making an extra special effort as the clocks went forward, so they lost extra hour sleep.
In the U9 league points are given for various skills such as blocking, hooking and lifting and striking ball so the game is not just about goals or points scored. It is also a non Competitive League, but some teams seemed to take it very seriously on the day.
Towers were 2 goals down at half time for the first match, but in the second half did not allow Kilmacud to score and almost scored themselves and were unfortunate not too. Sinead Kelly was in goal for the next two matches and did very well. All the girls played their best for these matches. very well.
A good match girls. Well done. Thanks to all the parents who came along to support. Thanks to Heather, Mary and Colm for all their help. Up Towers !!!!
