Senior Hurling

If you were asked to name 6 or 7 of the best Cloyne players over the past 10 years the names of Donal Og Cusack,Killian Cronin,Eoin and Paudie O Sullivan would definitely feature,so the fact that we had to take to the field on Saturday night last without their services indicates the enormity of the task we faced.
Great credit is due to the 15 that started as for the first 25 minutes in particular we more than matched our illustrious opponents.We played with a great aggression and intensity that had Sars in trouble,we never allowed them time on the ball and forced them into giving away frees for overcarrying on a number of occasions.The concession of a goal on the stroke of half time was the first time there was more than 2 points separating the teams.The half time score of 1.07 to 5 pts didn’t do justice to our first half efforts considering we had played against a very strong wind.
On the resumption Sars scored the first 3 points and at this stage it looked like that they would pull away but spurred on by a great Keith Dennehy goal we reduced the deficit to 3 points,scores were swapped but we couldn’t reduce the deficit further and with legs tiring we conceded a few late points to lose by 8 points 1.18 to 1.10.
We now head into round 2 against neighbours Killeagh in a positive frame of mind following this performance and hopefully with a few of the injured back on board.
