Molloy leads the line as St Louis fight back to beat CPC

Ulster Schools Senior Camogie

St Louis Ballymena 2-17   CPC 2-11

Seven points down three minutes into the second half St Louis Ballymena staged a great fightback to win in the end by six in Wednesday’s Senior Schools Camogie round robin game against CPC at Fr Healey Park, Loughgiel. In a game played on a sticky pitch, Cross & Passion led by 2-6 to 0-6 at half time, the goals coming from full forward Eimear McKinley in the sixth minute and Ciara Connolly on seventeen and with Oonagh Heggarty hitting over a series of points they were six to the good at the break.

St Louis got the first point in the second half to cut the gap back to five, but two quick points in reply had CPC seven ahead and looking strong. However a Sarah Fyfe goal in the 34th minutes started the St Louis revival, and with Katie Molloy leading the line they fought their way back, Molloy hitting a series of long range points.

The second goal came midway through the second half from corner forward Maria Gately and there was no way back for the Ballycastle school. Of course the structure of the competition means all four teams will qualify for the semi-finals but the way things are shaping up means CPC could be facing competition favourites St Pat’s Maghera in the semi-final with St Louis taking on Garron Tower in their last four game.
