Cashel 1-16 Knockavilla Donaskeigh Kickhams 3-7
Cashel opened their county minor A camogie championship campaign with a three-point win over neighbours Knockavilla.
Knockavilla were favourites for the postponed 2020 minor championship but Cashel are hot favourites this year.
Cashel have many of their current senior side still underage for minor ranks including Grace Moloney, Lillie and Anna Fahie, Ella O’ Dwyer, Alessia Mazzola and Kaitlin Downey.
They also reached the Under 16A final recently so have a younger cohort backing up these players.
Cashel had a comfortable half-time lead of 0-11 to 0-3. Knockavilla came thundering back into this game with two goals in the third quarter.
Knockavilla have promoted minors Ellen Browne, Leonie Farrell and Ellen O’Meara to the intermediate ranks but Cashel, however, held out for the win.
