U10 Hurling Blitz

posted 5 Sep 2011, 09:14 by Bart Barrins
Our U10 team travelled to Kent Park last Monday to partake in the final blitz of the year. Showing great skills and tenacity the team played 4 games on the evening.
The first game was against Coolera and the highlight for us was an excellent pointed free by Oisín Flynn from just inside his half.
We then took on Drumcliffe and this was up and down the field for the duration of the game with Owen Gillard and Brian Durkan getting their second goals of the week with Ronán Wilson hooking and blocking a joy to watch.
Next we took on the combined team of Calry and Easkey. Ruarí Gallagher calmness when under pressure in goal and Liam Donnegans play at full back were excellent.
Our last game was against the hosts Naomh Eoin and we showed tremendous heart  with Daniel Ruane putting his body in the way of a hurl, Dáire Barrins taking great sideline cuts and Paul Ruane all over the place.
After the games we had drawn 3 and lost 1. In the dressing room we treated the youngsters to refreshments and thanked them for their efforts all year.
Thanks to the parents and players and management for all their efforts. It is hoped to be back in the next few weeks with indoor hurling.
