Chairman Patrick Blackwell reiterated the report of the secretary and appreciated all the help from everyone during the year and especially with the restricted times we’re in during the pandemic. He mentioned also the work going on in the camogie sector and with big numbers and bit more effort would make the club very vibrant going forward.
U21 HURLING COUNTY SEMI FINAL: Just short of an hour before midnight when this titanic battle with Dromin/Athlacca ended last Wednesday night in Maguires Field UL as Sarsfield’s and Dromin/Athlacca battled it out for a place in the County U21 B final. This game has everything heart determination and a never say die attitude. On a cold bitter night the fare on offer distracted from the elements as both teams served up a belter of a game. The score at half time read Dromin 0-10 Sarsfield’s 0-6. Sarsfield’s came more into the game in the second half and points from Colm McMahon and a long range point from goalkeeper Jack Franklin plus a super score from Brian O’Grady had us leading by the narrowest of margins, but Dromin levelled with a point and the full time scored finished 0-15 each in a welter of excitement. The first period of extra time Sarsfield’s got off to the better start with points from Colm McMahon and Brian O’Grady 0-17 to 0-15. A superb goal by Brian O’Grady has us perfectly placed 1-17 to 0-18 but Dromin never relinguished and kept the scoreboard ticking over and Sarsfield’s led by the minimum at extra break 1-18 to 0-20. Unfortunately Sarsfield’s could only add another point to their tally as the southern side tacked on five unanswered points to reach the final on a scoreline 0-25 to 1-19. Well done to both teams for serving up a wonderful tussle on a cold December night.
