Camogie.Unfortunately and unluckily our under 13 team were beaten in The county final last Saturday in Boherlahan In a hard fought and very tight match they gave everything they had but on the day we were beaten 1-0 to 0-1 having held a slender lead until ten minutes to the end. Our girls lost nothing in defeat and won our admiration once again as they served up top class camogie with their trademark fierce commitment and courage . As they left the field they were extremely disappointed, and the tears were understandable, as the chance to lift our first county title had come agonisingly close. The exchanges were very even in the first half and Moyle Rovers enjoyed a one point lead at half time after a pointed free by Kristy Crotty Ryan.We had some scorable chances but they did not materialise. On the resumption our girls upped their efforts and had some further scoring chances that went very close but did nt convert.Then against the run of play Brian Borus swept the ball down field and and got a goal to take the lead.True to form our girls did n't let the heads drop and renewed their efforts. Again we went very close and we looked to have the magic goal scored by Sarah Hickey only to see it saved off the line by the outstretched foot of the Brian Boru's keeper. At the end of a great season for this talented team we enjoyed some great camogie and great matches along the way.All can we say is very well done and Thank you to these Girls and the Management team of John Ryan,Karen Fitzgearld and Anne McGarry The club and supporters were extremely proud of your brave efforts.After the match it was back to Monroe for some refreshments and cheering up.After some encouraging words from Club Chairperson Olivia we all left in a happier and more positive frame of mind. Our Panel who made history by being the first Underage Moyle Rovers team to Reach a county final was:Emma Tobin,Louise Norris,Amy Norris,Aine Fitzgearld,Sarah O'Dwyer (C),Emma Cronin,Kristy Crotty Ryan,Jenny Everard,Rosin Breen,Eimer Ryan,Leah McGarry,Rowena Dowling,Sarah Hickey,Eadoin O'Sullivan,Sophie Delaney, Karen Meehan,Kelly Ryan,Erin Mitten,Yasmin Quirke,Claire O'Dwyer.

U12 Camogie
Having participated in the U13 Co Semifinal on Saturday Sept 22nd our U12 girls travelled the following day to Ballingarry to participate in their annual blitz. Seven teams including ourselves Ballingarry, Molleran's, Emeralds, New Inn, Moycarkey and Ballycallan competed. It was very well organised and we thank Ballingarry for hosting and providing us with refreshments. We did not qualify for the final but all girls competed well, provided us with wonderful displays of camogie and came home with medals. We were represented by Sophie Delaney, Leah Mc Garry, Lucy Whyte, Clare O Dwyer, Karen Meehan, Louise Norris, Amy Norris, Sarah Hickey, Emer Ryan and Áine Fitzgerald. Well done girls after a busy camogie weekend.

Ladies football. Our Minors opened their championship last Saturday in Monroe. We got a good start to go a goal and a point ahead but Motcarkey came into the game strongly and had two points on the scorebaord fairly quickly plus some wides.A number of positional changed helped stabilise the team and we were rather flattered to be 1-6 to 1-3 ahead at half time. The second half was more productive and greater commitment from our girls yielded some very good scores. Moycarkey were a difficult side to break down and never gave up. We were lucky to be able to respond with scores when they scored. The final score of 6-8 to 3-5 does not reflect the hard work we made of winning this game. Next up at the week end is an away game to Thurles where a victory would probably qualify us for a semi final spot.The very best of good luck to the Under 14 team who travel to the AllI Ireland 7s in Dublin this Saturday.
