Glenville GAA Notes.
By John O'Connor, PRO Glenville GAA Club.
Glenville U13s finished up the round-robin section of East Cork Div 1 with a trip to Cloyne on Saturday 10th to play St. Colman's. A flurry of goals and points for the visitors came fast in the opening minutes and would prove too much for the hosts to overcome as the match wore on. The Glenville lads put some good scores together in both halves but it must be said St. Colman's did have a purple patch in the second half with some fine scores of their own. The final score was St. Colman's 4-7 Glenville 7-11, meaning that Glenville have 9 points in the league and finish in second place. See Team below.
Our U15s played their championship semi-final last Wednesday night vs. Carrigtwohill. Conditions had been atrocious in the run up to the match and were not great throughout, which didn’t make it an ideal night for football. We started brightly enough and traded a few early points but after captain Billy Ryan had to leave the field for a blood injury our performance dipped and by half time we were 1-06 to 0-02 down. We changed things around for the second half, bringing on a number of subs, but almost immediately suffered misfortune when centre back David Barry had to leave the field. However, the subs who came on made a difference, and with Billy back on the field the team put in a much better second half performance, driving forward and getting some scores on the board. Carrigtwohill were very well organized though and flooded the defence and midfield making it very difficult to create good scoring opportunities. While the pressure eventually told with a late goal from Billy, it was too little too late and Carrig ran out winners on a 1-11 to 1-06 score line. Billy Ryan was immense on the night, starting at full back but moving to centre field and driving the team forward, even with what transpired to be a broken nose. And on a night when a lot of players were a little sub-par, Conor McHugh put in a great performance at corner back, particularly in the second half when he made some vital interventions to stymie the Carrigtwohill attacks. Overall it was a disappointing end to our championship, with preparations hampered due to two teams pulling out of our group, and it was evident that the lads were a little under cooked coming into the game. That said, Carrigtwohill were worthy winners on the night and we wish them well in the final.
