West Waterford Town & Country U11 Hurling League.

Eochaill Óg has entered two teams into the West Waterford Town & Country U11 Hurling League. It is a 11 a side competition and given that Eochaill Óg are in the lucky position of having a panel of over 25 to draw from, it made sense to enter two different teams, Team Red and Team Blue.

Team Blue’s great start to the season continued with a great win over Cois Bríd. The lads started slowly but got on top from points from the two Jake’s and Peter Kirk. Jack McGrath and Kyle Brown were solid in the defence allowing Youghal to hold on for a narrow victory.

This continues on from victories against Lismore & Killeagh and a draw against Dungarvan. Team Red are also enjoying a good run with a win over Fourmilewater, thrilling draw against Clashmore and narrow defeats to Brickeys and Ballyduff Upper.

It has to be said that that both teams are really enjoying the league. The ability to enter two teams is giving kids loads of game time is this close and very competitive league.
