U14 League Final

Our U14 hurlers brought their hurling season to an end by emphatically winning the Premier 2 league title against a valiant Ballygarvan. This game took place in Delany’s GAA grounds on the Old Mallow Road on Saturday afternoon last, October 24th. The pitch was in fantastic condition and despite the strong winds the many supporters from both sides witnessed the full range of skills that these young hurlers possess. Plenty of goals, well taken scores, precision hooking and blocking, great passing, brilliant defending and goalkeeping, accuracy from the placed ball and very good team play from both sets of players. Killeagh-Ita’s captain, Ryan McCarthy accepted the League trophy on behalf of his cheering teammates and paid tribute to their coaches and mentors and thanked the Ballygarvan team for a very sporting final.

When the game got underway at 2pm it was clear that both teams were intent on victory. Ballygarvan were applying pressure on the Killeagh-Ita’s defence but despite sustained attacks they got no reward for their endeavours as Ryan and his fellow defenders withstood the onslaught. As Killeagh-Ita’s grew into the game they began to control their opponents and once they opened the scoring they settled into their stride. Their opening score was a goal from full forward Daniel Lucey who pulled on the loose ball following good work by Dara Motherway on the five minute mark. From here to the half time whistle they played some great hurling and were fully deserving of their extensive lead. Further goals from Ciaran Leahy and Robert Sinclair and points from Dara, Oisin, Olan and Ben gave them a lead of 4-04 to 0-02 at the short whistle.

From the restart, the boys in green kept up the pressure and never allowed their opponents back into the game, they reaped reward from virtually every attack but they also coped well with everything that Ballygarvan tried to throw at them. Ryan commanded the defence brilliantly and time again thwarted Ballygarvan at every turn. He was well supported by the players around him and some good saves from deputy ‘keeper Ciaran contributed to a very mean defensive group of players-nothing fancy, just the simple things done very well every time. Chief architect of the attack was Ben O’Connor. When he moved to midfield to partner Cathal Fitzgibbon, he began to take a firm grip on the game and Ballygarvan found it very hard to deal with him. His fielding and distribution of the ball was a joy to watch and he also struck over a few placed balls with ease. The forwards were buzzing and piled on the pressure on the Ballygarvan defence each time they had possession. When the final whistle came they had seven goals and eleven points on the board and, but for some point-blank saves from the keeper, they could certainly have scored more. All of the forward line got on the scoreboard in this game but their leader in attack, Daniel Lucey deserves special mention. From the first to the last whistle he displayed the full range of skills needed to be effective as a full forward. He scored goals and points, he brought players around him into the game, he laid the ball off to players in a better position than him and with this type of display he inspired those around him to play a far superior game than their opponents. They finished their league programme with a healthy six wins from six and with this display were fully deserving of a one hundred per cent league record. Well done to all players in the squad and also well done to their mentors Ger Fitzgibbon, Padraig McGrath and Michael ‘Fong’ Byrne on a fine end to an exciting season of hurling.
