 Our U13 lads met with Kilrossity in the Western semi­final in Dungarvan Friday 4th September. The lads put in a tremendous performance with goals from Stephen Roche, Padraig Hynes and Eolann Costello. The full time score line was a draw and we had to play 10 minutes extra time.  Unfortunately for us Kilrossity came out a goal on top and winners on the night.  Well done to the lads on their performance all year and a big thanks to the parents and supporters for their input.

MHC; Cois Bhride 2-20, De La Salle 2-16.

Cois Bhride minor hurlers came back from a three point deficit to emerge winners by four points after a pulsating match in Knockanore Tuesday night 8th . This win has set them up for a semi-final rematch with the same club De La Salle which may be on next Tuesday. The visitors got off to a good start with a goal within minutes of the throw in but Kelvyn O' Farrell replied with a goal for Cois Bhride, and the scores flowed with De La Salle scoring more freely, and they led by 1-12 to 1-9 at half time. The sides traded score for score in a high quality game, and with ten minutes to go, the visitors still held onto that three point lead. But that's when this fine bunch of players showed they weren't willing to give up their excellent home record, and with a goal from Darragh Buckley set up by Edward Hynes after a great run the sides were level. We went ahead, 'Salle scored another goal, but our lads took over and finished with some excellent scores from Darragh, Edward, and the impressive Ryan Grey to win by four.

What was pleasing was they weren't prepared to settle for a good display, they wanted a win and deservedly got it. It was also good to see Padraig Roche back to his best after a long lay off due to a broken elbow, and hopefully Jake Beecher will have recovered from his injury for the semi final. As I said, they now play De La Salle again Tuesday next week, time and venue to be confirmed. Panel; Davy Tobin, Robbie Geary, Cathal Geary, Tom Roche, Padraig Roche, Jordan Henley, Darragh Mulcahy, Jake Neville, John Paul Lucey, Dylan Mangan, Ryan Grey, Edward Hynes, Darragh Buckley, Kelvyn O' Farrell, Ian Beecher, Edward O' Neill, Alan Buckley, Billy Hynes.
