Seven up as Knockmay see off Camross in Final!

On Thursday, 25th of May, the Scoil Bhríde girls played Camross B Team in the finals. The weather was very warm and our players were very stressed but excited.  The Camross girls put up a great fight but the Knockmay girls did an even better job and won the Finals.  After the match, each of the girls received Gold Medals and Scoil Bhríde took the trophy home for a second year running.

Well Done girls!

Scoil Bhride Knockmay 7-0 Camross 1-0

Allianz Cumann na mBunscol Roinn 7 Camogie

Ester Ubesie and Blessing Mbeba scored three goals each and Evisa Subrovska scored one, leading Scoil Bhríde of Knockmay to claim glory in the Roinn 7 Camogie final.

Camross had Dublin footballer, Denis Bastick, on hand to help out with the team talk and the warm up. Bastick’s parents are both from Laois and it was his niece, Sarah, who scored the Camross goal in the opening half.

Still, the Portlaoise school led 3-0 to 1-0 at half-time, all three of their goals coming from Blessing Mbeba.

Esther Ubesie got her hat-trick in the second half and Evisa Subrovska added another to seal a six-goal win.
