UNDER 21 HURLERS
Our under 21 hurlers were in action over the weekend where they crossed swords with Garryspillane in the Gaelic Grounds at the quarter final stage.
This was a lively affair and we raced out of the blocks with a well taken point from Adam McNamara. Garryspillane then rattled off 4 unanswered points before4 we gained parity with scores from Dylan Lynch and James Daly.
The game ebbed and flowed throughout with some fine points scored. We were level on numerous occasions but by half time the Bouncers had opened up a 4 point cushion 0-12 to 0-8
The second half followed similiar trend with great battling spirit being showen by our lads and by mid way through the half we were all square once again at 14 points apiece.
Following the water break we fought tooth and nail for our scores and with time running out we trailed by 4 points.
An Adam McNamara goal put the minimum between us and with time in the red it was Calvin Moran who popped up with the equaliser from underneath the shadow of the Mackey stand to force the game into extra time. Na Piarsaigh 1-18 Garryspillane 0-21.
The first period of extra time was mostly Garyspillane and by the short whistle had opened up a gap of 0-27 to 1-19 with our solitary point coming from James Daly.
That lead was stretched to 7points adn it looked over for the lads. In true na Piarsaigh fashion we battled back bravely and a goal from Emmet McEvoy and two James Daly frees had us back to a solitary point.
However try as we might we could not find that elusive score and it was Garryspillane who held on for victory on a scorleine of 0-30 to 2-22 aet.
Unfortuantely due to the abbreviated nature of this years championship we are finished for the year but great credit due to the players and management for their efforts.
Team: Ryan Robin Blake Paul Considine, Mark Daly, Mark O Connor, Lucas O Sullivan, Jerome Boylan, Pauric Heaney, Sean Long, Keith Dempsey, Matthew DeCourcey, Adam McNamara, Emmet McEvoy, Calvin Moran, James Daly, Dylan Lynch
