Intermediates first game of the season

A home venue for St. Joseph’s didn’t entitle them to a win on Saturday evening April 7th as rare sun shone over themselves and visitors Kilkishen/Bodyke in Gurteen which was a rarity this past week or so in first intermediate game of 2018!  It was Kilkishen/Bodyke first to score with 3 consecutive points before St. Joseph’s replied with a hand pass sliotar to the net from Caoimhe Hoey leveling matters.

The East Clare amalgamation were to score a further 1-5 while the maroon & white girls popped another goal from Hoey along with a well set free from Erinn Hennessy to bring the first half to a close at Kilkishen/Bodyke 1-8 to St. Joseph’s 2-1. It was the home side first to adjust the scoreboard when the second half resumed with a point from Amy Lenihan, but the visitors were able to respond with two consecutive points before Hennessy narrowed things with another point for the Joseph girls. Kilkishen/Bodyke pushed on however and found the net backed up with 2 points. The Doora Barefield girls managed another point from Hennessy to leave the final score line Kilkishen/Bodyke 2-12 St. Joseph’s 2-5.
