U10 Hurling Blitz in Sligo

posted 10 May 2011, 03:48 by Bart Barrins
Our U10 hurlers had their first games of the year on Monday evening in Kevinsfort. Luckily the dreadful weather held off till the final whistle was blown and then the heavens opened.
We played 4 matches.
First up was Coolera with both teams very evenly matched. All games only allowed ground hurling and as the evening progressed our lads improved greatly.
We then played Drumcliffe, but despite dominating possession we went down by one score. Naomh Eoin from Sligo town were our next opponents with a very good game being played. Our last game was against Easkey. Another tight game and again despite having plenty of chances we did not take them losing by a single score.
It was a great evenings entertainment for those there and a great learning experience for the young lads, most of whom were playing their first official game of hurling
Thanks to those who provided lifts to children and hope to see you Wednesday when the U14 team take on Tourlestrane in Corballa.
Team: Liam Donnegan, Owen Gillard, Ruari Gallagher, David Coggins, Óisín Flynn, Ronán Wilson, Dáire Barrins, Daniel Ruane, Brian Durkan
