Girls' Camogie Semi Final

The boys' hurling team reached the semi final last week with a hard fought win over Trim. This week, the girls have the chance to emulate them by reaching their own final. Their semi final against Boardsmill will be played next Thursday, June 5th in Trim GAA pitch at 3.15. The very best of luck to them!

Girls' Mini 7s Champions!!

Well done to the girls' Mini 7s team who today won the Mini 7s Camogie championship.

Captained by Jessica and Amy, the girls were excellent throughout and managed to beat Kilmessan in an enthralling final that went to extra time.

To begin with, Kildalkey were drawn in a group with Rath Cairn, St. Mary's Trim and Gaelscoil Tulach na n-Og. Playing Rath Cairn first, the girls signalled their intent by posting 5-5 to no score with some terrific points from distance. They then played St. Mary's, Trim and though this was a tighter affair, they prevailed by 4-0 to 1-0. Finally, they played Gaelscoil Tulach na n-Óg for a place in the final. This was a very close match, played in horrible conditions, with Laura's first half goal proving to be the main difference between the sides.

And then there were two. The final was played and the girls faced off against Kilmessan. In what was a rip roaring encounter, Lauren got Kildalkey off to a great start when scoring a great goal. Kilmessan responded with a goal of their own, a great strike. Jessica then doubled on the ball in the air from Lauren's free to score the goal of the game (and probably the competition) and put Kildalkey a goal ahead at the break. Some resolute defending meant that Kildalkey held out for most of the second half (some of which was delayed due to an injury to a Kilmessan player - thankfully she is ok). However, with two minutes to go, Kilmessan struck for an equaliser to level the game. With no further scores, the final went to extra time. Kilmessan were first to register a score, pointing in the first minute. It was then that Kildalkey showed their mettle. Working the ball down to Jessica, she struck what proved to be the winning goal, the ball dipping under the bar. While Kilmessan battled on, it was to be Kildalkey's day.

All players contributed to the matches and played well over the course of the four matches. Jessica and Hollie shared the goalkeeping responsibilities and proved to be superb shotstoppers. Kayla, Sarah, Amy and Katie defended superbly throughout, conceding very little. Lauren and Hollie were tireless in the middle of the field and got some great score, while up front, Rachelle, Kate and Laura got some great scores and were aided and abetted by Hollie and Jessica also.

Afterwards, a trip to Supermacs was had and we then got the great news that Jessica had been selected to play in Croke Park at an All Ireland semi final in August.

Well done to all the team on this great achievement!!

Girls' Mini 7s Finals

Well done to girls' Mini 7s team who performed so well in the Mini 7s finals today in Dunganny.

Drawn in a very tough group against Dunboyne and Dangan, the girls battled admirably against both teams. Losing by five points at half time against Dangan, the girls battled superbly to hit the front against them with some superb scores from Jessica and Hollie. Unfortunately, they were hit with a sucker punch when Dangan broke upfield at the end and scored what proved to be the winning score, with Kildalkey the wrong side of a 2-2 to 2-1 scoreline.

They then faced off against a very strong Dunboyne outfit. Though doing extremely well for long periods in the first half, Dunboyne managed to break through for 4 goals in a 2 minute period, which put a very unfair reflection on the scoreboard. Kildalkey then played some great football in the second half, scoring 1-4 to 0-1 in that period, completely outplaying the overall champions of the Mini 7s, no mean feat. Overall though, the damage had been done with the concession of those goals.

Well done to the team and their captains, Kayla and Lauren. They can certainly hold their heads up high!

MIni 7s

Boys Mini 7s Champions!!!

Well done to the Boys Mini 7s team today, 8th April, who won the Mini 7s hurling competition in Meath.

Having beaten Gaelscoil na Bóinne and Rath Cairn yesterday in two closely fought games to get through to the finals, the boys were up against Dangan, Kilskyre and Dunboyne.

First up was Dangan. Playing against a stiff breeze, the boys did very well to counteract the breeze and went in at the break 1-1 to no score. They were then able to use the breeze to post long range points and finish out the game 1-6 to 0-1.

They then played Kilskyre. This time, Kildalkey had the breeze in the first half and utilsed it to their advantage to ensure a healthy half time lead. They closed out the game in the second half to leave the final score 4-2 to no score.

The final was then played against Dunboyne. Playing with the wind, Kildalkey put over some great scores in the first half. However, a fortuitous goal for Dunboyne, along with some great defending by Dunboyne and some unfortunate wides for Kildalkey meant that Kildalkey went in at the break leading only by a goal 1-3 to 1-0. It was then that we saw the real measure of this team. Facing into what seemed like a gale force breeze, they scored a goal straight away from the throw in. Though Dunboyne responded in kind, Kildalkey upped the workrate and won some fantastic ball at midfield and worked some glorious scores. In the end, Kildalkey prevailed on a scoreline of 4-5 to 3-2.

Well done to all the players from Lorcan and Kelvin in goal, to the defence of the two Conors and Gavin. Niall, captain for the day, was a colossus in midfield throughout and was assisted superbly by Lee. Up front, Adam had some great scores in all matches and was aided and abetted by the high fielding Aaron.

Afterwards, Niall was presented with the plaque and a trip to Supermacs was had. Niall was also selected to represent Meath in Croke Park at an All Ireland Hurling Semi Final this year.

Well done to the boys on today's great achievement!

Success on the football fields

The GAA season restarted for Kildalkey N.S. this week with the Mini 7s football leagues taking place.

The girls did brilliantly in their regional section beating Ballivor, Rathmore and Gaelscoil na Bóinne en route to winning out their section. They will now play in the finals on Monday, 31st March. Best of luck to them!

Not to be outdone, the boys then won their section, defeating Boardsmill and Rath Cairn in two keenly contested matches. As the regional section had been delayed, they then had to play the finals the following day. Putting in superb performances, they defeated Castletown before going on to play Skryne. Putting in a skillful performance, they fought all the way. Unfortunately, it transpired that they had lost by a point at the final whistle, when many believed they had actually drawn, which would have put them through to the semi final. Nevertheless, they can hold their heads up high after some superb performances.

Well done to all involved. The camogie and hurling training are in full swing so we can look forward to the Mini 7s and then Cumann na mBunscol matches in both codes.
