Congratulations to Piper’s Hill College Camogie team who beat Presentation College Carlow 9-4 – 0-0 in the final of the Carlow Kildare  Shield Post Primary School League.  The game got off to a great start when the ball was won in midfield then quickly cleared into the half forward  line for Ciara Smith who created a goal scoring chance superbly taken by Ella Kearney.  Piper’s Hill went on to create more goal scoring opportunities with Ella Kearney and Ciara Smith both completing hat tricks.  Goals were also scored by Laura Cahill and Jenny Cahill.  Kaitlin Miley scored four points from midfield leading to a resounding first shield victory for Pipers Hill College. Well done to all team members and their coaches.
