U12 Hurling

19 May, 2014

In a rain swept Kilcoole Bray under 12 hurlers played their third hurling league game. Bray started well with Jack, Sam and Cathal doing well in midfield getting good ball into a dangerous forward line of Fionn, Philip, Rory, Oscar who took their scores well. Kilcoole settled more into the game but the back line of Aaron, Eoin, Tadhg and Zack kept the Kilcoole attacks at bay resulting in Luan having a quiet game in goal. 

Trying to keep players warm and moving was very important on the night and with a strong bench, Riain, Conor, Tim and Brian when introduced kept up the pressure on Kilccole with Aodain, Daniel, Ben and Nathan also making valuable contributions in the first half.
In the second half, Kilcoole rose their game considerably scoring a number of excellent points and a well worked goal. The back line of Aaron, Riain, Luan (now playing outfield), Tadhg and Daniel continued to play well. Sam in goal was kept busy and ensured long accurate puck outs found their men, with Jack, Zack, Cathal, Fionn and Tim starting many dangerous attacks which Brian, Rory, Oscar and Nathan capitalised on. Eoin, Ben and Conor played really well in the second half with Aodain, Philip also making valuable contributions.
This was a satisfactory performance with everyone though wet got plenty of game time, thanks to the Kilcoole mentors for hosting the game and Ciaran Gaskin for reffing the game on what was a very wet but typical "summers evening" in Ireland.

Team: Jack, Sam, Cathal, Fionn, Philip, Rory, Oscar, Aaron,Eoin,Tadhg, Zack, Riain, Conor, Tim, Brian, Aodain, Daniel, Ben, Nathan,
