After the previous weekends football matches it was now time to turn to the small ball. With our under 10 and under 8 hurling teams taking the field at the same time in different locations. It is great credit to the club that they can field both teams. It shows the continued hard work that is being done by the club officers, managers and trainers.
On Saturday morning our under 8 hurlers were in Fermoy to competed in the RebelOg Monster-blitz. In the first game we played Ballygiblin. This was a really enjoyable game with Eoin, Caoimhe, Luke and Will really playing well. In the second game we played Killavullen and again all players played well including Fionn, Rory, Jamie and Cian. In the third and final match we played Glanworth. Niall, Séan, Dawn and Indya worked hard and scored some brilliant goals. All these games were played to the highest of standard at this age level. The kids put on a great show for all the parents and supports at the game. Panel of players on the day: Eoin Sheedy, Caoimhe Looney, Luke Twomey, Will Ladd Finn, Fionn O Sullivan, Rory Murray, Jamie Burke, Cian Sheedy, Niall Murray, Séan Barry, Dawn Ladd Finn, Indya Szwarc.
Special thanks to Niamh McGuickin for helping ref some of the games.
Our under 10 hurlers made the short journey over to our neighbours Glanworth. With the sun shinning and the grass cut this had the makings of being a very keenly contested game, and that is the way it panned out. Right from the off it was obvious that both teams have being training hard and working on their skills, with some brilliant hooking and blocking on display. In goals Peter was very calm and composed when clearing his lines and finding a black and red jerseys at every opportunity. Daniel, Aine and Dean put in fine performances with some great blocks and clearances. They really stood up to the challenge of a good Glanworth forward line. In midfield, Michael, Lorcan and Nathan had a battle on there hands against a very good midfield pairing from Glanworth. However when the questions were asked they stood up to the challenge. Michael worked tireless up and down the field all day. Lorcan put on an exhibition of hooking and blocking and Nathan was always on hand to pick up the break and wining his own frees which he calmly converted. Up front, Jack, Cian, Rory and Morgan mad the most of every opportunity by testing the keeper on numerous occasions. With a bit more luck they could have added to their already big scoring tally.
The second half was nail biting stuff for team management and supporters alike, with never more then a score between the two teams. Well done to both teams who gave a 100% effort and commitment. Panel of players: Peter O Keeffe,Daniel McGuickin, Rory Dempsey, Aine Burke, Michael Casey Hanely, Dean Fitzharris, Cian Looney, Lorcan Murry, Morgan McGrellis, Jack Twomey.
