Championship week 8
Game week 8 started on July the 2nd. First up was the two Ladies teams that have been inseparable so far, Glynn/Barntown V Breaffy. All Ireland Feeling was all over this match! The Mayo ladies unleashed in the 3rd innings, batting in 9 runs with the help from Breaffy's Katie Kenny who hit a monster ball over 2nd base. Final result 10-3.
The Mayo club took on Bagenalstown in mixed after. Breaffy's Colm Jordan set his team alight with a massive hit bringing 3 home but Carlow's Darryl blocked him from the home run he was looking for! Match result 13-7.
Over the road The Heath hosted Dublin's Na Fianna. A game that was very one sided for last year's men's champions, who ran out comfortable winners on a score line 20-1.
Thursday the 6th seen Cuchulainn against the Heath in mixed championship. Cuchulainn put on a strong front for the first 2 innings with Katie Brennan and Anne Marie Brennan dominating.
