**Cois Bhride U14 Hurling V An Ghaeltacht 30/5/2016**

Our U14 hurlers got their campaign underway with a home game against An Ghaeltacht. The visitors got into the game quickly and posted early scores to lead by 4 points after 15 mins. Cois Bhride settled a bit and pointed a couple of frees to pull the lead back a little. A goal and two points from An Gaeltacht before half time pushed their lead out and they were comfortably ahead going into the second half. Credit to our lads they kept working away and a long range goal from Jake Chambers gave the boys a bit more energy and they clawed their way back into the game along with several frees from Padraig Hynes kept us in touch. Another goal from Gaeltacht didn’t deter the lads and the younger players like James Power, Ethan Scotton and Conor O’Keeffe battled away and a goal from Padraig Hynes left only a couple of points in it. The visitors tagged on the odd score to keep ahead and hung on for the win 2-12 to 2-08. Cois Bhride: Cathal Hunt, Stephen Roche, Darragh Spillane, James Power, Eoin Hurley, Jake Chambers, Eoghan Lenehan, Padraig Hynes, Mark Dalton, Josh Geary, Tom Dalton, Conor O’Keeffe, Ethan Scotton, Cian Hurley, Kevin Mulcahy.

**Cois Bhride U14 Hurling V St. Mary’s 6/6/2016**

The boys played their second game in division 2 away in Bunmahon on Bank Holiday Monday last. In a tightly contested match the lads worked well in the first half, with Mark Dalton and Padraig Hynes dominating the middle and scoring the opening 4 points before St. Mary’s got through for a goal. The team kept working hard especially at the back where Stephen Roche and Darragh Spillane marked tightly and Eolann Costello and Jake Chambers worked the ball out well into the forwards where two more points, and a goal from Eoghan Lenehan put them 1-06 to 1-00 up at half time. St. Mary’s shuffled their team around and made good use of their bigger players in the second half scoring two goals early on. However the Cois Bhride lads kept battling with Cian Hurley showing his pace when carrying the ball forward and they scored another goal from Padraig Hynes and added points from Mark Dalton and Shane Martin, with Josh Geary unlucky not to convert more of the chances that came his way. St. Mary’s put pressure on by running directly at the back line with Eoin Hurley trying to plug the gaps, but as we tired we gave away frees which they scored to the net, two in the last seven minutes to draw level, even though Cathal Hunt made some good saves all through. A chance to snatch a win eluded the lads as the referee blew the whistle as we got possession in the forward line but they had to settle for the draw 2-09 to 5-00 Team: Cathal Hunt, Darragh Spillane, Eoin Hurley, Stephen Roche, Jake Chambers, Tom Dalton, Eolann Costello, Padraig Hynes, Mark Dalton, Cian Hurley, Eoghan Lenehan, Shane Martin, Ethan Scotton, Josh Geary, Kevin Mulcahy, James Power, Jack Murphy.


Well done to our u11 hurlers on their unbeaten run in the Town and Country League which they rounded off with a great win over Brickey Rangers recently giving them the title of League champions for the second year in a row. Well done to all the coaches, and parents who transport them to training and matches. And a special well done to the team of boys who showed that with hard work comes rewards. Keep up the good work lads.

Team: Jack McDonnell. Adam Mc Sweeney. Ian Martin. Josh Good. Ciaran Lenihan. Alan Hurley Jake Henley Callum McCarthy Cian OBrien Conor Henley. Stephen Murphy. Taylor Twohig. Ben Grey.
