Ahalin National School qualify for Boys Division 1 Hurling Final:
Ahalin National School last week qualified for the Cumann na mBunscol Division 1 hurling final with a thrilling win over a determined Broadford NS in a sunny Knockaderry last Tuesday. Earlier wins over Mahoonagh and Adare Boys put the school in the semi-final against their western rivals. It was nip and tuck early with Broadford goaling and Rían and Cathal keeping the scoreboard ticking over for Ahalin but a another couple of quick goals from Broadford gave them a commanding lead into the break, 3-4 to 0-5. Playing against the breeze in the second half, the Ahalin boys (and girls) showed great determination, with goalkeeper Tom, Conor, Jamie and the rest of the defence getting on top in defence, Rían chipping away at the lead, Diarmait, working extremely hard in the middle of the field with Maurice, Cathal and Seán looking very dangerous up front. Broadford raised a green flag again before a couple of super goals by Aimee put her school a point up. The away team never gave up and a late free at the death levelled the scores at 2-12 to 4-6. In extra time, it was very tight but a great goal from Karleigh and a couple of points from Rían and Cathal left the final score of a very exciting game, 3-14 to Ahalin and 4-7 to Broadford. The Division 1 West Final takes place this Wednesday 7th of June against local rivals Mahoonagh, N.S. Only a point separated the teams when they met earlier this year and, once more, it should be a very exciting encounter. Throw-in is 12 noon in Mick Neville Park, Rathkeale.
The previous week, also in Mick Neville Park, the Ahalin Girls did extremely well to reach the semi-final of the Division 1 Camógie competition. Exciting wins against Mahoonagh and Croagh and a defeat against Killoughteen put the girls into the semi-final. Here, the girls gave a committed performance, here, but lost out by a single point to a very talented Broadford team.
