CAHERLINE GAA CLUB NOTES
JUNIOR A HURLING: Our Junior A lads headed back to Cappamore to play Ahane last Sunday evening – this was a must win game for us if we had any hope of staying in contention for a semi-final spot, but Ahane didn’t make it easy for us. The first half was even enough, but we probably should have been further ahead, 0-08 to 0-07 at half time. The goals came for us in the second half, one each from Brendan Hourigan (9th min), Paudie Wixted (13th min) & Kevin Wixted
(31st min), giving us a comfortable win in the end, 3-14(23) to 0-14(14), but plenty to do ahead of our final game against Cappamore towards the end of the month. TEAM: M Moloney, S Whelan, P O’Keefe, T O’Keefe, N Tierney, G Murphy, A Power, S Erasmus (0-01), P Wixted (1-06(1*f)), K Wixted (1-02), B Hourigan (1-00), W O’Keefe, A Brennan (0-01), Jk Enright (0-02), E Nelligan (0-02). SUBS: J Carroll, D Murnane, B Kennedy, D Power, C Hickey, D McNamara, J Heelan, D Balfry, E Balfry.
MINOR HURLING: Good win on the road for our Minors last Friday evening – Liberties had a good start to the game, going 1-02 to 0-01 up after just 3 minutes. Our lads slowly worked their way into the game and three goals from James Halvey, David O’Connell & Robbie Holmes gave us a good lead at half time, 3-8(17) to 1-7(10). The second half continued as the first half ended, with our lads driving up the field for scores, in what was becoming a very physical game; another goal from Jack McElligott in the 21st minute and some solid defence keeping Liberties at bay, drove us on to a convincing win, 4-21(33) to 1-9(12). TEAM: J Franklin (0-01(1*f)), L Shanahan, D McNamara, R Walsh, J Sheehan, N Tierney, D Murnane (0-01), J Kennedy (0-10(7*f)), S Erasmus, C Enright, D O’Connell (1-01), J Moloney, J Halvey (1-04), R Holmes (1-03), N O’Connor. SUBS: J McElligott (1-00), C Hannan (0-01), M Hogan, P Ryan.
