A slow week after two Championship games insix days its back to routine league games

 

In Div 3 of the Junior hurling league weplayed two games winning one

 

Mon 25th June J H L Div 3 Aghada 1-9Castlemartyr 2-14

The Junior hurlers put up a brave performanceagainst Castlemartyr on Monday night.

Things went against us just when we weregetting a foothold in the game as we lost Paudie Wall and Eoghan Cotter toinjury, as well as Mike Burchill. The panel deserved more than the resultsuggests and a few players had to be played out of position. The line was ledby Anthony Connolly and Eric Higgins while Ryan O Keeffe and Alan Walsh put inhuge efforts on the forty. Ray Savage put in a man of the match display on thenight. The midfield was marshalled by Stephen Cashman, before injury halted himas well as Aidan O’Connell who never stopped trying from start to finish.

Overall, a disappointing result, given theefforts but it was just one of those nights against a strong Castlemartyr sideTeam; Kane Looney, Alan Creedon, Eoghan Cotter, Richie Condon, Andrew ODonoghue, Paudie Wall, Liam Morrissey, Stephen Cashman, Aidan O Connell, AlanWalsh, Ray Savage, Ryan O Keeffe, Eric Higgins, Anthony Connolly, MikeBurchill; Subs; Dave Condon for Paudie Wall, Robbie Steele for Eric Higgins,Willie O Shea for Mike Burchill, Jack Hayes for Richie Condon

Thur 28th June JHL Div 3 Aghada 4-6Watergrasshill 0-7

The Junior hurlers finally got the rewardtheir efforts have deserved with a fine win against Watergrasshill on a wetnight in Rostellan.

The panel were disappointed with the waythe Castlemartyr game had gone on Monday and needed no motivation to put thingsright here.

From the throw-in every ball was challengedand every player was at full pace.

An early goal from Anthony Connolly,settled us down but the whole team was impressing, none more than CaptainStephen Cashman and Alan Walsh in the engine room. Conor O Driscoll was provingvery accurate from the corner while Dave Condon chased down every ball and wasunlucky himself not to score a goal or two. At the back Willie O Shea and EricHiggins were outstanding and, along with Liam Morrissey who was brilliant onthe night, set up a solid platform going it at half time. We were 1-5 to 0-1 atthe break.

As expected the Hill, came back stronglyafter the restart but another Anthony Connolly goal followed by two quick goalsfrom Conor O Driscoll sealed the win before he made way for Robbie Steele.Overall a very strong performance driven by the pride within the squad but specialmentions go to Kane Looney, probably our most consistent performer, Jack Hayes,Alan Creedon, Ray Savage and Andrew O Donoghue. Aidan O Connell had his bestouting of the year so far but all these players can hold their heads high withtheir commitment. Team; Kane Looney, Eric Higgins, Liam Morrissey, Willie OShea, Andrew O Donoghue Alan Creedon Aidan O Connell, Alan Walsh, StephenCashman (Capt), Brian Condon, Ray Savage, Jack Hayes, Dave Condon, AnthonyConnolly, Conor O Driscoll; Subs: Robbie Steele and Mark Stanton
