Intermediate Hurling Championship.

Sunday 17th May in Ballygarvan.

Aghada 1-21 Barryroe 1-7.

The wait is over for our lads as they outplayed Barryroe in Ballygarvan on Sunday evening. We had a forward line made up of Tim Harnett. Aaron Stafford Daniel Creedon John Looney William Leahy and Kevin O Hanlon with an average age of 19 on display with all getting on the scoreboard. We started well getting ahead early but for some reason we left Barryroe back into game with a goal which gave them a glimmer of hope, Half time score Aghada 0-8 Barryroe 1-4. The second half was a different story with everyone clubbing in together giving a performance that had everything from some great points from John Looney goal by Kevin O Hanlon free taking by William Leahy to score of the match with a sideline ball over the bar from Aaron Stafford. Our defence led by Michael Russell at center back with Billy Hennessey and Jp alongside and fullback line of Dave Rice Jake O Donoghue Tom O Neill kept Barryroe to three points in second half. The midfield was run by Stephen O Keeffe Man of the Match and Paudi Wall . Martin Day in goals organised his backs continuously talking to them. Eoin Healy replaced Daniel Creedon and also got on the scoreboard. There was a great show of support which helped the team get through the game .It was also nice to see our juveniles perform at half time.Good day all round.

Aghada Minor non exam Football team welcomed Douglas to Rostellan to play in an exciting game of football with some very good performances displayed by both sets of players. Douglas were after notching up more scores when the final whistle sounded. This competition gives opportunity to new players a chance to step up and make the transition to minor ranks and develop new skills.

Our Minor hurling team travelled to Rathcormac to play Brides Rovers in a non exam league game. Aghada players showed great skill and team work through-out game, and came away with a well deserved win.
