Senior Camogie Championship Semi Final

Camross will contest the Laois senior camogie championship final after a twelve point win over The Harps last night.

Three first half goals did the trick for Camross as they had just too much for their opponents in Trumera.

They will now go forward to take on O’Moores in the decider in two weeks time.

Camross shot three goals in the first half with two of them coming the way of corner forward Lizzie Ryan.

Sheila Burke notched the other and while The Harps had Louise Mahoney raising a green flag down the other end, Camross took a 3-7 to 1-3 lead into the half time break.

Mahoney and Therese Bennett kept The Harps side of the scoreboard ticking on the resumption of play as they raised white flags.

However, they couldn’t get close to Camross with Sarah Anne Fitzgerald flawless on frees while Niamh Dollard and Sarah Cuddy also chipped in with points to seal a deserved 12 point win.

They will now go forward to play O’Moores in the county final on September 23.
