Juvenile Notes:

Heartbreak follows joy for Under 14 hurlers

Just four days after defeating Bishopstown in a thrilling quarter-final in Ballinure last Monday evening, our Under 14 hurlers bowed out at the penultimate stage in the most cruel of manners on Friday evening in Aghada. Seo é an scéal.

Monday night’s game was an amazing encounter, with both teams hurling out of their skins at different stages. Bishopstown got off to a flier with a goal after four minutes but our boys took off then and three quick goals from Olan Broderick’s free, Ben O’Connor and Dara Motherway gave us a 3-1 to 1-1 cushion after fifteen minutes. We continued to dominate with the strong wind favouring us, and Daniel Lucey’s kicked goal gave us a better cushion, although ominously Bishopstown scored the last two points of the half when it was 4-5 to 1-3 in our favour. The second half saw us maintain our advantage gap up to the 43rd minute with each side adding 1-2 (Ciaran Leahy getting a crucial goal just after half-time, but then Bishopstown took over completely and added 2-3 quickly while we struggled to get the ball up into our forward line. With two minutes left we were hanging on by just a goal when one of our rare attacks led to

Dara Motherway adding a final goal to close out the game, 6-8 to 4-8. It was a thrilling game with all our backs once again doing Trojan work while Ben O’Connor, Olan Broderick and Daniel Lucey all had stormers up front.

Team: Robbie Treacy, Danny Cunningham, Cian McDonald, Paul Delaney, Robert Sinclair, Ryan McCarthy (0-1), Richie Landers, Owen Cosgrove, Cathal Fitzgibbon, Dara Motherway (2-0), David Kelly, Olan Broderick (1-3f), Darragh O’Connor, Daniel Lucey (1-1), Ben O’Connor (1-3). Subs: Ciaran Leahy (1-0), Oisin McCarthy, George Sinclair, Aaron O’Connell, Tommy Noonan, Christian Coughlan, Brian Murphy.

And so it was on to Rostellan on Friday evening against Na Piarsaigh. Our chief scorer Ben O’Connor was absent through illness and we felt his loss as it reduced our scoring threat. Playing with the wind in the first half we struggled to get the ball past a dominant Na Piarsaigh half back line and were reduced to scores from distance, mostly from Olan Broderick’s free taking. Daniel Lucey did repeat his goal kicking trick to give us a 1-5 to 0-3 lead after twenty minutes, but Na Piarsaigh’s Kevin Moynihan landed some spectacular frees from distance to leave us barely ahead, 1-6 to 0-7 at half time. The second half saw a real tight struggle with both teams giving their all, but with time up it looked like we would hold out by the minimum (2-9 to 0-14) thanks in the main to Ciaran Leahy’s 52nd minute goal, but then disaster, as Na Piarsaigh scored a goal in the 63rd minute to take the lead for the first time since the third minute, and with not enough time for us to respond, the victory. Cruel luck on our brave team who gave their supporters great joy and entertainment over three exciting championship games. So the championship is gone but we’ll regroup in a few weeks and with the excellent coaching from Fong, Ger and Padraig developing these boys’ skills consistently, hopefully we can return to winning ways in our remaining league games. Well done boys, and best wishes to both Na Piarsaigh and Blarney in the final next weekend. For us, it’s over to the football now with championship against Inniscarra on Friday 29th at home.

Team: Robbie Treacy, Danny Cunningham, Cian McDonald, Paul Delaney, Robert Sinclair, Ryan McCarthy (0-1f), Richie Landers, Owen Cosgrove, Cathal Fitzgibbon, George Sinclair, David Kelly, Olan Broderick (0-6, 0-5f), Darragh O’Connor, Daniel Lucey (0-1), Dara Motherway (0-1). Subs: Ciaran Leahy (1-0), Oisin McCarthy, Karl O’Toole, Aaron O’Connell, Tommy Noonan, Christian Coughlan, Brian Murphy.
