The first year Camogie girls had an excellent victory in the first round of the Cork Colleges “A” competition defeating Colaiste an Phiarsaigh on a score line of 8-3 to 6-4. The girls from Sacred Heart goaled early on through Rachel Deasy and it was a lead they would not relinquish. Margaret Sexton and Millie Condon added further goals in the first quarter as the Clon girls took advantage of the strong wind to their backs. Rachel Deasy tacked on a 45 after a great save from the Glanmire goalie and on the stroke of half time player of the match Mary Murphy added a fourth goal to leave the half time score 4-3 2-3 in favour of Sacred Heart.
With the strong breeze now favouring the East Cork side they thundered back into the game, reducing the margin to just two points and it could have been worse but for fine defending from Siofra Pattwell, Kate Ryan and Claire Dullea. The long puckouts of Heather Brimble helped the Clon girls clear their lines and launch some break away attacks. From one such attack Millie Condon found the back of the net with a crisp ground strike. Further goals from the hard working Alannah O Brien, Caoimhe Murphy and Orlaith Deasy allowed Sacred Heart to run out five point winners.
