Juvenile Notes - 15th August

Under 13 & 14
We played De La Salle in the third round of the under 14 hurling championship a fortnight ago. This was a competitive and low scoring game where we came away with a win 0-8 to 0-3.
We then travelled to Cappoquin to play them in the fourth round of the under 14 hurling championship last Monday evening. We held a few point advantage for most of the game, when we got two goals mid way through the second half it sealed the game for us to record the win 1-5 to 2-10.

Panel: Aaron Beresford, Jack Kiely, James Beresford, Padraig Moore, Bearach Moore, Gearoid Hallinan, Tom Looby, Neil Montgomery, Ryan Daly, Darragh McGrath, Tony Collins, Sean Whelan Barrett, Sean Crotty, David Montgomery, Mark Twomey, Fion Gibson Kiely.

The next game in this championship is away to Mt Sion on Thursday 23rd August. Our second team in this champion start off on Monday 20th away to Stradbally and at home to St Molleran’s on Thursday 23rd. Our second under 13 team are now through to the Western Semi final where we play Ardmore on the 1st of September.

Training Wednesday @ 7:00.

Under 12
Our under 12’s had a day to remember last Tuesday where they travelled to Croke Park to play in a football blitz. We played three other teams from around Munster JK Brackens, Oola and Kildorrery. These were very good games with each of the 20 player panel getting plenty opportunity to show their skill on the big stage. After the games and photo shoot, it was time to get the tour of the stadium and a briefing of the history of both the GAA and the stadium.  On our way back we stopped in Carlow for refreshments and bowling. This was a very enjoyable day which most of the kids will remember for a long time.

Panel: Shane Kiely, James Riordan, Daithi Brunnock, Johnny Treen, Fergal Roche, Meldan Dwyer, Jamie Walsh, Ben Flynn, Eoin Ahearne, Michael Kiely, Senan Travers, Ethan Raher, Cian Riordan, Oisin Hallahan, Michael Troy, David Hayes, Patrick Fitzgerald, Sean Roche, David Roche, Jamie Power.

We played the first round of the under 12 football last Friday evening away to Ardmore.  Building on the experience four days earlier in Croke Park they started very well and played some very good football and went  on to record a good win 3-5 to 4-13.

Panel: Shane Kiely, James Riordan, Daithi Brunnock, Johnny Treen, Dean Beresford, Meldan Dwyer, Jamie Walsh, Ben Flynn, Michael Kiely, Ethan Raher, Cian Riordan, Michael Troy, Sean Roche.

Next Friday our under 11’s play in Dungarvan.

Training Wednesday @ 7:00.

Under 10
We travelled to Ballyhale last Saturday to participate in this prestige hurling tournament the Awlyard Cup. The standard of hurling was very high by all the teams with our lads performing very well on the day. We played Thomastown in the first game where we fought very hard only to lose out by a single point, the ball went everywhere except over the post and even though our lads were disappointed after the game the gathered themselves to beat Ballycallan in the 2nd game which put them through to the final of the shield. The lads really excelled in the final to win comfortably 7-4 to 2-3 against Carrickshock, we had some great performances in the final and playing in a tournament like this certainly helps in bringing on these lads for the future, as they play against different teams with a different style of hurling. The team on the day was Jack Riordon, Sean Sullivan, Ben O Donovan, Daniel Treen, Colin Foley, Darragh Slevin, DJ Kiely, Tadgh Collins, Eoin Flynn, Niall Buckley, Alec Norris, Jamie Moylan, Tony Dwyer. We would like to thank Ballyhale for the invitation and their hospitality on the day and also compliment them on their efficient running of the tournament.

We have a hurling league for the next three Monday evenings, all players will be notifed by teamer of the fixture.

Best of luck to all our members who are receiving their Leaving Cert results this Wednesday. We hope all the hard work and sacrifices put in throughout the year was worth it.
