JUNIOR B HURLING: We welcomed our near neighbours Pallasgreen to Caherconlish on August 11th and it wasn’t a good night for us – Pallas are a good outfit and really put us to the sword, taking the win 7-12 to 0-10. Team on the night – M Moloney, J Heelan, S Kenny, L Shanahan, D Casey, S Whelan (0-01(1*f)), D McNamara, A Nelligan (0-01), S Erasmus (0-02), C Enright, B Kennedy (0-01), J Kennedy (0-04(3*f)), H McGuire, P Tiernan (0-01), N O’Connor. SUBS: J Moloney, E Balfry, J McCarthy, J Ryan. We have a break now until September, when we’ll play Ballybricken, Cappamore & Murroe-Boher.
MINOR HURLING: Our minors have played two games over the weekend – first up, we welcomed Askeaton to Caherconlish last Friday evening…first half, not much in it, Askeaton up by 2 points at the water break & 4 up at half time, a goal from Jack McElligott with 2 mins left in the first half, crucial to close the gap. Second half, we kept them to 1 point in the first 16 mins, while we scored 1-06, our second goal coming from Conor Martin right on the water break, to see us up 2-10 to 0-12. At that stage, we had momentum, but the
curse of the water break hit and Askeaton came back strong in the last 14 mins or so, outscoring us 1-04 to 0-01, to take the win 1-16 to 2-11. Team on the night – H Murnane, S McAnulty, J Moloney, S O’Dwyer, C McGrath, Di Murnane, Jk Carroll, J Kennedy (0-08(3*f, 1*p), K O’Dea, D Curtin (0-01), M O’Connor, C Martin (1-01), A McNamara, J McElligott (1-00), C Enright (0-01). SUBS: J McNamara, A Hanley, P Ryan, N Connaughton, M Vaughan, P O’Dea, S McGrath, J Leamy. Then on Sunday evening, we travelled to Fedamore to meet Ballybricken/B’More/Fedamore, a game played in horrible conditions. We probably deserved more than a one point lead at the break, 0-06 to 0-05 ahead. In the second half, the conditions really deteriorated and Ballybricken/Fedamore handled it better than us. Two goals in the 7th & 9th mins of the second half gave them a lead we weren’t able to pull back, taking the win 2-10 to 0-08. Team on the night – H Murnane, S McAnulty, J Moloney, S O’Dwyer, C McGrath, D Murnane, J Carroll, J Kennedy (0-06(3*f)), K O’Dea (0-01),
C Martin, M O’Connor, C Enright, A McNamara, J McElligott, A Hanley (0-01). SUBS: D Curtin, P O’Dea, P Ryan, N Connaughton, S McGrath. Next up, we play Knockaderry on Friday evening at 7pm in Caherconlish.
