Harsh decisions to drive U16 on to greater victories!

Our U16 team suffered disappointment when losing by a point to Thomastown in the hurling championship.

For two teams who had played well in the league this was always going to be a close game. With both defences in good form, scoring chances were hard to take with conditions very greasy due to heavy rain as the match started. We went in at half time three points behind. A big effort in the last quarter saw our lads turn the game in our favour, from being five points down to score one goal and four points without reply to lead by two points deep into injury time. With five minutes of injury time played a free was awarded to Thomastown in front of the goal, which was converted to a goal and we lost the game on a score line of 3-8 to 2-10.
