End of Season report from Bruff Hockey Club

Bruff took on Church of Ireland of Cork on Saturday last. It was a disappointing day for the Bruff ladies as they experienced defeat by a superior side. Church of Ireland has had a fantastic season and finish first in the league with Bruff finishing second. This cup semi final game was played in Garryduff in Cork and puts an end to the 2007/2008 season for the club.

The game began at a high pace and there was immediate pressure on the Bruff defence. As a result of this Church of Ireland scored the game’s opening goal 10 minutes into the game. Throughout the first half Church of Ireland began to build up a lead and went into the half time break well ahead.

Bruff’s performance did improve in the second half and were unlucky not to get on the score sheet due to a strong Church of Ireland defence. It was Church of Ireland who took their chances and extended their lead leaving the final score Church of Ireland 5 Bruff 0.

TEAM Lisa Ryan, Helena Gubbins, Fiona Lee, Catherine Martin, Nicola Savage Jennifer Liston, Gillian Keane, Jennifer O’ Brien, Catriona Kennedy, Sharon Bulfin, Caroline Collins, Cathy Wallace, Louise Carroll.

As the season is complete Bruff are delighted with finishing second and will be aiming at first place within the division next season. It’s been a great year for the club and great credit is due to players and committee for their dedication and commitment all season long. A special word of thanks must go to our Chairperson Catherine Kennedy who puts in a huge amount of time and effort to make this club a success. Your work is much appreciated Catriona.

The club will host a Table quiz in April in Derry’s Bar Bruff, support would be greatly appreciated, with the date to be announced at a later stage. For further information go to
