A Game That Got Away - Padraic Connaughton

The Westmeath Camogie Manager reflects on his side's season-ending loss to Offaly.

It was Westmeath's wides rather than a missed penalty that cost the Lake County in their All Ireland Championship defeat to Offaly, according to their manager Padraic Connaughton.

There was just a point between the sides at half time but despite numerous chances to take control of the game, Westmeath's season was ended following a five point loss.

Midway through the second half, Clonkill's Megan Dowdall missed a penalty, and that was followed by a late Offaly goal from Grainne Kennedy to seal victory for the Faithful County.

Connaughton says the game got away from his side when they failed to take their points:
