The battle for the Junior A County League between Na Piarsaigh and Banteer went right down tothe wire with the game being played on a carpet like surface in Castle Road on the 27th May.Both teams gave it there all and as a result kept both supporters on the edge of their seats forthe closing ten minutes of an exciting and hard faught encounter.

It was Banteer who started the stronger and inside three minutes Rosie Twohig laid off a great pass to Karen O Keeffe who slotted over a fine point on the run to open the scoring. Banteer continued to keep the Na Pairsaigh defense under pressure by running at them and retured a second point through Lisa Howard on the ten minute mark. Thirteen minutes in Northsiders failed to clear their lines and adequately and it was Rosie Twohig who struck for the opening goalof the game when her superb shot went low to the left hand sideof Amy Lee in the Piarsaighs goal. A minute later and trailing by fivepoints Na Piarsaigh opening their scoring through Trish Coleman point before Vanessa O Connor just off the bench with her first touch of the action, passed to Orla Connolly who split the posts with a the game and began to settle by racking up three unanswered points through two placed balls from the stick of free taker Leona Crowley and Connolly adding from play. Na Piarsaigh worked hard to close the gap and draw level on the 12 minute before Banteer struck for a brace of points through Aine Cott and Gemma Cashman to leave the half time score Na Piarsaigh 0-05, Banteer 1-04.
The opening quarter of the second half witnessed Banteer do some ferocious defending as Na Piarsaigh surged forward in attack and were eventually rewarded with a hard earned 45 metre free which Crowley made no mistake in pointing.  Banteer held on to their tentative one pint lead as Na Piarsaigh dominated however Eleanor Twohig briefly put two between the sides but this was quickly cancelled out by Crowley with a pointed free on the 43rd minutes. Banteer once again opened up a two point lead with a fine effort from Cashman who split the post after an Aine Cott pass found her unmarked on the 30 yard line. Na Piarsaigh remained focused and a free from a tight angle taken by Crowley sailed all the way to the roof of the Banteer net to put them ahead for the first time in the game. However the lead was to be short lived as Banteer struck for a goal of their own through Lynda Dunlea who rattled the back of the Piarsaigh posts, With Banteer holding on to their precarious two point lead, deep in injury time Amy Lee cam forward from goal to take a free from close in but her drilled effort grazed over the cross bar and as time ran our Banteer held on to win by one 2-06 to 1-08 in a thrilling encounter.

Banteer u14 finish off the camogie year in style, as they capture the Avondhu U14 title after a thrilling encounter with Ballyhea in Ballyhea on Saturday evening last.

From the whistle both teams came out the traps on a high tempo, which continued right throughout.  With players battling hard for possession it was fifteen minutes before any team register a score through Ballyhea, despite this, Banteer found their rhythm to score 3 points without reply. Banteer suffered a blow when Ballyhea got on the right side of a breaking ball to find a gap in the Banteer defence and raise the first green flag of the game seconds before the half time whistle, leaving the score at the break Banteer 0.03 Ballyhea 1.01.

On resumption Banteer started the better in all areas of the field. A long range Banteer free found the back of the Ballyhea net which was well deserved for their efforts, Banteer kick on from there by adding two more points to their tally, but as expected from Ballyhea, they weren’t going down without a fight, and with an excellent run from their centre back the sliotar ended up in the Banteer net. Once again Banteer dug deep and after a nail biting final ten minutes Banteer held out with a one point victory on the final whistle Final Score Banteer 1.06 Ballyhea 2.02.

The Avondhu cup was presented by Avondhu Treasurer Donncha Foley to Banteer’s joint captains Mairead O Suilivan and Roisin Foley.

Huge credit must go to trainers Rosie Twohig and Karen O Keeffe for the amount of work and time they have given to this team throughout the year.

Once again our Junior team continue to create history for the club as they capture the Junior B County title in a thrilling encounter on Saturday last. In front of a large group of support Banteer defeated Cobh in a clash that was just as exciting as anticipated.

Cobh got off to the better start registering two early points, it wasn’t long before Banteer settled and got themselves on the scoreboard with a point from a placed ball. The work rate to win possession from both teams was huge throughout. With Banteer’s defence clearing intelligent ball, Cobh were finding it difficult to see any way through leaving the score Banteer 0-4 Cobh 0-3 on the half time whistle.

On resumption Banteer found their feet and started to dominate on the attack but it wasn’t until the last ten minutes when Banteer raised the only green flag of the day, they found themselves with a bit of breathing space. The hard work put in at training then started to shine through as Banteer closed out the final ten the stronger. Final Score Banteer 1-09 Cobh 0-5

Shelly Twohig was deservingly awarded player of the game for her outstanding performance at centre field. The County Chairperson Marian McCarthy presented the County cup to the Banteer captain Rosie Twohig who thanked everyone who help out with this team in any way since the team was formed 3 years ago especially to Chairman Donncha Foley, Treasurer Hillary Lyons, who continues to work hard behind the scenes.

The opening stages saw both teams work hard to win possession in all positions of the field. Banteer were first to raise the green flag with an excellent goal in the opening quarter. Working hard to get scores, Banteer added to their tally with converted frees before the Glen found the back of the Banteer net to leave 3 points between the sides on the half time whistle.

The Banteer girls came flying out the traps on the restart dominating the first 15 mins, finding great space up front with a combination of precision passing and excellent work rate throughout Banteer refused to take the foot of the peddle. Despites best efforts form the Glen throwing everything they had at Banteer in the closing stages of the game the lead proved too much. In front of a large following Banteer closed the game on a scoreline of Banteer 3-11 Glen Rovers 2-5
