Championship survival is on the line for teams this weekend in the Clare senior camogie campaign.
Current county and provincial champions Scariff/Ogonnelloe put their titles on the line this Saturday. Following a four point defeat to Inagh/Kilnamona last weekend, the East Clare side must overcome the challenge of Truagh/Clonlara if they are to advance to the last four.
After bringing in a new management team led by county boss Ger O’Connell, Truagh/Clonlara recorded an impressive 3-16 1-07 win over Sixmilebridge. Nothing but a successive win will suffice for them.
Having secured their place in the knockout stages, Inagh/Kilnamona will be looking to continue their recent run of form. Amy Keating hit the net for the 2018 champions in their 1-10 0-09 victory against Scariff/Ogonnelloe. They face Sixmilebridge on Saturday, the Conor Dolan coached side are without a win in two games and will be looking to finish their campaign on a high.
Kilkishen/Bodyke sprung a massive shock over the weekend in snatching a 2-13 2-11 win over Newmarket-on-Fergus. They will be tipped to collect their second win of the championship when they meet St Josephs Doora/Barefield, it is a result they must obtain to keep their hopes of appearing in the semi-finals alive.
A win for Kilmaley against Newmarket-on-Fergus would not alone secure their place as top spot in the group but would also more than likely send the Blues crashing out of the championship. Chloe Neylon has hit five goals in two games for Kimaley, she along with Niamh O’Dea and Claire McMahon will be pivotal figures as they aim to end Newmarket’s involvement in this year’s campaign.
Clooney/Quin’s bid to return to the senior ranks received another boost when they accounted for Éire Óg 3-14 1-14. Elsewhere in the intermediate championship, Feakle/Killanena’s strong run of form continued when they defeated neighbours Whitegate 0-22 1-13. Clarecastle/Ballyea had a 2-18 1-13 win over Tulla.
