MUNGRET ST PAUL’S
Mungret St. Pauls 0-16 Ballybrown 0-18
It was not a great evening for a hurling match but the players got a lucky hour where the rain was not falling but there was a bit of a breeze in Caherdavin under lights on Wednesday 2 November 2022 for the U-21 hurling match against neighbours Ballybrown.
There were no goals in this game eventhough there were many attempts to try get in a quick three pointer. Mungret St. Pauls were up against it for most of the game being four points behind at half time 0-8 to 0-12 they gave a better game in the second half but were just not able to get the game level and it was two points that they could not find that separated the two teams in the end.
Mungret St. Pauls 1-20 Na Piarsaigh 4-7
On Sunday 6 November our U-21 hurlers had to go out to Mick Neville Park to play Na Piarsaigh in the final match of the group stages.
It started looking like it was going to be tight game with both sides matching each others scores but it only took Na Piarsaigh one minute to make a huge difference on the score board by netting two balls they followed this up with three points before Mungret St. Pauls got a chance to respond with two points. There was one more point added to the Na Piarsaigh score before Mungret St. Pauls closed the first half with four points leaving only four points between the two sides at half time, 0-9 to 2-7.
The second half was a different game as Mungret St. Pauls had the breeze and with no sign of Na Piarsaigh appearing from the dressing rooms it looked like the ball could be thrown in with only one team on the pitch but it eventually got underway with both teams lined out. Mungret St. Pauls scored nine points on the trot finishing off with our only goal of the game giving us the lead by eight points. Na Piarsaigh did eventually get in a reply with a goal from a close range free. Mungret St. Pauls pressed on with another two points and with time ticking away Na Piarsaigh needed goals to catch up. A free for Na Piarsaigh infront of the goals was cleared away but when the ball came back down to our goals there was another free again infront of the goals. The Na Piarsaigh free was bounded away but a quick moving Na Piarsaigh player got to the ball first and hit the net. The full time whistle was blown before there were any more scores from either side.
This win for Mungret St. Pauls sees them into the Semi Final possibly against Doon with Ballybrown going through from our group also.
Our Junior 12 a-side camogie team took on Ahane on Sunday afternoon in Crecora in the Final. The girls put on a really strong display, unfortunately they lost narrowly to Ahane.
Full time score: Mungret St. Pauls: 1-10 Ahane: 1-13
