WE DID IT !! What an evening and what a game of football as our lads defeated St. Edwards on a scoreline of 2-11 to 1-13. It was a relentless game from the off as both teams gave everything. It would have been easy to panic as St. Edwards reeled in our 5 point lead to hit the front with just minutes remaining, but our boys don’t do panic as they worked their way up the field to engineer a goal with our last attack of the game. There was still time for another point from Edwards to close the gap to 1 and after an another attack was brilliantly defended by our lads, the cup was ours. This made Roy of the Rovers look run of the mill !! Massive congrats to all our players for such a composed, skillful, brave display. Huge thanks to the management for all their hard work and to all parents and supporters for cheering us on throughout. Commiserations to St. Edwards who played their part in a brilliant game.
Well done to all the under 7 hurling team on winning their home game against Sarsfields on Sunday. They really played their hearts out and never gave up. There were some lovely plays during the match and their skill levels are improving. The most important thing is that all the kids had fun. Next game for the U-7 hurlers is away to Round Towers on Sunday 28 May at 10am.
Next up this week are the U-14 team who play a home League game V. Castledermot this Tues 16th May at 7pm.
