Minor Football, Cois Bhride 5-10, Stradbally 3-7.
After the first round was postponed because of bad weather, Cois Bhride Minor footballers finally played their first match last Saturday night against Stradbally away. We got off to a good start with early goals from Conor McCarthy and Shane Ryan, and points from Kieran Crawford, Billy Hynes and Edward O' Neill.  We led by 10 points at half time, and though we let the home side back into the game in the second half, we managed to hang on to our lead with further goals from Eoin McGrath and another from the deadly Conor. We had some great performances throughout the team with Darragh Mulcahy anchoring the backs, Edward O' Neill and Cathal Geary in the middle of the park, and young Kieran Crawford, Conor McCarthy, and Shane O' Neill the pick of the forwards. Panel; Ivan O' Neill, Robbie Geary, Billy Henley, Tom Roche, Darragh Mulcahy, Ian Beecher, Edward O' Neill, Cathal Geary, Shane Ryan, Kieran Crawford, Billy Hynes, Conor McCarthy, Dean Beecher, Dylan Mangan, Mark Stewart, Ben Aherne, Liam Motherway, Eoin McGrath, Sean Henley.


The first round of the Ned Power Shield was played last Friday with great ground hurling on show. Waterford were victorious against Kilkenny. Then there were two wins for Cork against both Tipperary & Kilkenny. Looking forward to more exciting action next Friday night! Best of luck to all teams.
