u14s are Division 2 Champions

After the shortest of time spells, the u14 girls are making a hasty return to Div 1 camogie for 2022. Having been relegated after this year’s league campaign, the girls were eager to show that they deserved to be playing at the highest level and set about proving this in the Div 2 Championship. After running up some big scores in the earlier rounds against the likes of Clontarf, Nh Mearnog and Na Fianna things started to get a little tougher in the semis. Nh Brid another former Div 1 team were the opposition at that stage and it was not until the final quarter that the Faughs girls opened out an unassailable lead. The final was away to our closest neighbours Judes, so at least we hadn’t far to travel.  Faughs took an early lead which they would maintain throughout. The score line of 7-03 to 1-09 doesn’t really reflect the game which was an entertaining contest with every loose ball being hotly contested throughout. The Faughs defence put in a dogged performance which left no easy route to goal for Judes and on the occasions when they did break though, the Faughs keeper was in no mood to allow easy scores. With so many fantastic performances all over the pitch it wouldn’t be fair to single out any one of our players as this truly was a team effort. Having accepted the cup and the player of the match trophy the girls then returned to the clubhouse to continue the celebrations as Div 2 Champions.
