Laois 2-11 Galway 0-17
Liberty Insurance All Ireland Intermediate Championship
Laois camogie bowed out of the All-Ireland intermediate campaign on Saturday 12 August where they drew with Galway.
Even facing no possibilty of continuing on their ALL-Ireland campaign, the Laois women played with extreme hard-work and determination and held Galway to a draw.
The video contains all the highlights of the match, which turned out to be an exciting battle on the day.
Laois started the scoring with a point from Lizzie Ryan in the first minute, to which Galway replied with four points in succession.
Galway were up 6 points to 5 point before Lynda Keyes found goal for the O’Moore women. Niamh Dollard added a point to Laois’s tally before Galway scored a 45 which left two points between the side at half-time. Laois 1-08 Galway 0-9.
Galway went on to score six unanswered points in the second half leaving them 15 points to 1-08 ahead.
But Laois stepped up to the mark.
A brilliant goal rocketed into the net at a tight angle from subsitute Eimear Guidera and an extraordinary save goalie Laura Dunne who lunged across the goal kept Laois up there with Galway.
Guidera added two more points to her tally and Louise O’Mahony put over a placed ball to edge Laois a point ahead. But a late point from Galway insured the sides drew level and concluded the match in O’Moore Park.
Also featured in the video are Laois manager Owen Drennan and captain Rosemarie Bermingham.
Laois players now turn their minds to club championship action. With games still left in the group stage, it is still all to play for before the semi-finals and final in September.
