Bride Rovers Notes

Senior Hurlers

Our Senior Hurlers played na Piarsaigh last Thursday night in a play off game for a semi final spot in this year’s league .We led at half time 1.8 to 1.7 the goal courtesy of a penalty scored by Barry Johnson. The second half was close until the last ten minutes when Na Piarsaigh added on a few points to run out winners 1.20 to 1.13 to end our involvement in this year’s league. We had a great league campaign finishing up in joint 4th position. Our championship game v Ballyhea is fixed for Mallow on Sunday Aug 11th at 3.45pm Following a decision of the Cork County Board extra-time will be played in rounds two, three and four.

U14 Football

Bride Rovers under 14s travelled to Kanturk on Wednesday 17th of July to play Kanturk in the first round of the Northern division 2 football championship, played on a beautiful evening for any game the lads got off to the proverbial 'flyer' against Kanturk who were slow to find their rhythm. Bride Rovers pressed high and didn't allow Kanturk to gain any foothold in the game whilst the lads continued to keep the scoreboard moving, indeed at the referee's whistle for half half the scoreboard read, Kanturk 0:01 Bride Rovers 4:09.
