Tara Juniors reach League Semi

Author: Colette Fahy
Venue: TCG, Greenford
Date: Saturday 7th May 2011
Result: Tara 4-2 John Mitchells 1-4

Tara Camogie Club have reached the Junior League semi-final following a hard-fought win over last years championship winners, John Mitchells at Greenford on Saturday.

Tara got on the scoreboard early with a long range-goal from centre-forward Aileen Bradley, followed by a well taken point from sharp-shooter and captain Denise Mooney. Although only starting the game with 11 players, Birminghams John Mitchells battled hard and put Taras backline of Susi Gill, Dearbhaill O Neill, Maria Casey and Katie Jones to the test. However Taras defence stood solid conceeding just 1-2 in the first half. Tara's midfield trio of Sheila Fernandes, Jennifer Tomb and Lindsey Shanks worked tirelessly to contain a very physical and skillful Mitchells side with Sheila's hard work in the centre paying off with a beautiful long range point just before the interval which left Tara just two points ahead at half-time.

Tara started off the second half well, with full forward Denise Mooney and corner-forwards Ciara O'Shea and Karen O'Connor combining well. Karen O'Connors two well-struck goals followed by a lovely point from Mooney extended Taras lead, and the introduction of corner forward Janine O Gorman provided an alternative attacking option. However Taras dominance was short-lived with Mitchells scoring two further points and threatening the Tara goal throughout the second half. If it wasnt for the resilience of the Tara defence and Player of the match performance from Tara goalie Janine O Neill, who was outstanding between the posts, the scoreline could have been much closer. Tara won out 4-2 to 1-4 winners in the end after a tightly-contested game against a gallant Mitchells side and in particular Noelle Devlin, Lisa Kearns, Mairead Hogan (0-4, 3f) and Martina Cunniffe.

Tara top their group whilst Mitchells come in second and both teams await the 3-way play-off in the other group involving Bros Pearse, Croydon and Green Isles, which should be decided by Wednesday evening. Semi finals are fixed for Saturday 14th April with Finals the following week.

Tara: Janine O Neill, Dearbhail O Neill, Susi Gill, Maria Casey, Katie Jones, Lyndsey Shanks, Sheila Fernandes, Jennifer Tomb, Denise Mooney, Aileen Bradley, Karen O Connor, Ciara O Shea. Subs: Janine Gorman, Tina Enright.
