SOUTH LIBERTIES GAA CLUB NOTES
SENIOR HURLING ¼ FINAL
Our Senior Men bowed out of the championship last Sunday afternoon after a magnificent performance that had us on the edge of our seats for so long. It was a bitterly disappointing result for everyone after scoring 5-17. Full match report on other section of Limerick Leader.
It will certainly bring hopes though of a positive future ahead for the Club as we edge nearer the higher ranks of Senior placings. We now play Adare to see which club will move between the A and B section for next year’s pairings.
EAST JUNIOR B HURLING SEMI FINAL
Our Junior Men lost out in the East semi final to Cappamore. The surface was very wet last Saturday and did not suit us as we slipped far too many times and despite a great start, we missed out on a few goal chances that would have changed the game somewhat but the final score of Cappamore 2-20 to South Liberties 1-15 was out of grasp.
Due to a clash of colours between ourselves and Cappamore, we would like to thank Elm Court Service Station for sponsoring a set of jerseys that our boys wore for this match, and we will have them for the future of games against clubs of similar colours.
Our U13 Footballers took on Cois Laoi Gaels in their Mr Binman sponsored County Final last Saturday morning October 2nd in Mick Neville Park. The boys were playing brilliant football and were 5 points up with three minutes to go, despite missing a penalty. Cois Laoi Gaels got a boost with a goal and from kick out, chased the ball again and followed suit with another goal sending shock waves through the sideline spectators. In the last 10 seconds of the game, we were powering through on goal, but unfortunately hit the post and the ball bounded back out. Liberties caught it and went for a point which went inches wide and the game was up. Such hard luck for all concerned but a great team to watch for the future. Thanks to Des, Declan, and Joe, all the boys and all the parents for the dedication all year.
We are still awaiting the confirmed fixtures for our U15 and U17 lads for their final and semi-final respectively.
