BALLYBRICKEN/BOHERMORE GAA CLUB NOTES
U21: Our U21 hurlers Ballybricken Bohermore /Fedamore had two wins over the last week first up was Granagh Ballingary on Monday last who we defeated 4-15 to 0-17. With the elements at our backs we were slow to get going with our oppents leading by two points after five minutes. The next period proved crucial for our lads scoring 2-5 without reply the goals coming from a crisp strike from Michael Martin and a tidy finish from Daniel Owens. We began the second half eight points up as Granagh closed to within five we got another goal just before the water break from Daniel Owens followed late in the half by a first time finish to the roof of the net from Jason Cross. Credit to our defence who held tough in the closing stages to leave us running out winners by eight points.

Our next U21 match was a county semi final against neighbours Caherline played in Cappamore on Wednesday evening last with the wet conditions having a big influence on the game. Although we were on top and getting shots off we trailied at the first water break 0-3 to 0-2 that deficit was extended to four soon after but we battled back to draw level at halftime 0-6 a piece. Facing into a gentle breeze after the break it was proving to be a very tight tussle with the game left to flow scores were hard earned and heading into the second water break we trailed by two points. In the final quarter we managed to claw back Caherline’s lead and a last minute Daniel Ownes free send the obsorbing contest in to extra time. With the rain now increasing in volume we had a match winning period scoring 1-3 to no reply with the goal coming from Daniel Owens and thanks to excellent defensive work we only conceaded two points in the twenty minutes of extra time.
