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.
