Under 14 Hurling

30 April, 2014

The Under 14 hurlers competed in the Wicklow Féile final against Carnew on Wed 30th April in Pearse Park. This short, thirty minute match was an all-action, full-blooded affair. Carnew hit the ground running in every sense. As one Bray mentor remarked, their pursuit of breaking ball resembled greyhounds chasing a rabbit. Ciarán McKay and Donnchadh Griffin-Carroll worked hard to stem the tide, as did the speedy, courageous Andrew Conway.  In the second-half, Cian Lohan created chances and Rory Lambe did his best amid very tight, tough marking. However, the 5 point gap could not be bridged. All hands were to the pump for the tense concluding minutes, but a relieved Carnew were the deserving winners on this occasion. 
Good news did follow later that evening, when we heard that Wicklow were being allowed to enter 2 teams into this summer's Féile. Tagann an ghrian i ndiaidh na fearthainne.
