JUNIOR A HURLING: Big fixture for our Junior A team next weekend, when we face off against Doon in the penultimate round of this year’s championship in Cappamore at 6pm on Sunday. Unfortunately, no spectators are allowed attend, so we’ll do our best to keep you updated via social media throughout the game.
U-14 HURLING: We came up against a very good Knockainey side last Wednesday evening and despite the scoreline, our lads gave it a good cut. Tom Carroll in goals pulled off some spectacular saves, top drawer stuff and our outfield players battled hard against their opposite numbers all evening. Goals from Sam McElligott (1), Pádraig McCarthy (1) and Tadhg Spencer (2) closed the gap somewhat, but Knockainey were always able to find their scores that bit easier when they needed them. Our lads plugged away though and had a very strong final quarter, something to build on for the next game. Final score, Knockainey 6-14 Caherline 4-4. TEAM: T Carroll, C O’Connor, T Spencer (2-00), C Partridge, S Tiernan, B Madden, A Murnane, C Casey, S McElligott (1-01), P McCarthy (1-02), J Boland (0-01), M Boland, J Kiely, R Hehir, F Horgan. SUBS: E Martin, R Moloney, O Heelan, S Casey, J Gavin.
U-11 HURLING: Our U-11 team came up against a very strong Ballybrown team on Sunday evening last, but we’re very proud of the effort every one of the team put in. We’re not out again until September 13th, so keep training & practicing. Panel – A Ryan, M Koyce, D O’Dwyer, R Mannion, B McGrath, J Kiely, S Merrick, E O’Donnell, S McAnulty, R Coffey, R Lynch, A O’Brien, S O’Dwyer, P Power, W Tracy, E Murnane, N Partridge.
