U-13 Hurling

22 August, 2015

6 -2 -  Bray Emmets 2 – 5.

The U13 hurlers travelled to Porterstown Park on Saturday August 22 to continue their Dublin Campaign. Missing most of the squad due to holidays and other commitments, sincere thanks to the u-12’s who played and allowed the fixture to go ahead with 13-a- side. T

he concession of a number of early goals had the lads chasing the game from the off, but they fought for everything and although they struggled to impose themselves on a skilful and physically bigger Castleknock side they were still in the game at half time and went in behind on a scoreline of 2-2 to 4-0. The lads continued their best efforts in the second half and imposed themselves on Castleknock, but unfortunately were unable to catch them, and the concession of a couple of goals in the final third decided the fixture. Special mention to Cathal who scored 1- 4 from midfield and Cian Forde who finished with 1-1 from play, to Aaron who was a dynamo in defence and to Michael who was playing his first full game of hurling. Ben’s puck outs were very good and all the backs, Adam, Aaron, Tadhg, Conor, and Eoin were excellent, keeping Castleknock to a single point from play. At midfield Cathal and Zack worked tirelessly, and the forwards Oscar, Rory, Cian, Michael and Andrew made the very best of their opportunities.

 Team: Ben Gorman, Eoin Holmes, Aaron O’ Rourke, Tadhg Mac Carthy, Adam Bushe, Conor Duff, Cathal Eddy, Zack Collins, Oscar Harty, Rory Mulcahy, Cian Forde, Andrew Mc Cann, Michael Mac Carthy.
