Oranmore Maree made it four wins from four in the Senior A Camogie championship when they defeated Athenry in their second last group game played in Gort on Sunday. Athenry started well with Jessica Gill and Sabina Rabbitte opening the scoring but it didn't take long for Oranmore Maree to settle into the game and with some well taken scores and went in at half time leading comfortably on a scoreline of 0-11 to 0-05.
Throughout the game, the work rate of the Oranmore Maree girls deserves a lot of credit in their effectiveness in closing down potential Athenry attacks. Oranmore Maree started the second half strong with points from Clodagh Power, Ailish O'Reilly & Lauren O'Dea. A Noreeen Coen goal and a Sabina Rabbitte point brought Athenry back to within 5 points. Oranmore Maree responded quickly and with Ailish O'Reilly finding the back of the net midway through the second half putting Oranmore Maree firmly back in the driving seat, Oranmore Maree closed out the game with a final scoreline of:
Oranmore Maree 1-24 - 1-10 Athenry.
Next up for the team is Sarsfields in a repeat of last year's final. The game will take place at the weekend but with Sunday's victory the team have now guaranteed their place in this year's county semi final.
Well done to the panel and their management.
