 MHC, Cois Bhride 0-15, De La Salle 0-11.

Cois Bhride minor hurlers have qualified for the county final after a hard fought win over De La Salle in Fraher Field last Wednesday. De La Salle started better and led 3 points to nil after about 5 minutes. Cois Bhride finally realised that the game was on and points from Ryan Grey and Kelvyn O' Farrell had us back level. The sides traded points after that and were level 0-6 each going in at half time. Once again the city team started the second half better and put over three points to a single point from Kelvyn.

But then, as they have done a few times this year, we got into gear and after Jordan Henley scored a super point from a sideline cut, we scored the next six points in a row to lead by five points, with three coming from the excellent Ryan, two from Kelvyn, and one from Edward Hynes. ' Salle cut the defecit with two points, but the final score came from 15 year old Tom Roche, the youngest player on the panel, and we were into the final. This is a great bunch of lads, and they are the first division 1 minor Cois Bhride team to get to a county final since 2001. Ballygunner will be our opponents, and we are only too aware of their threat as they were the only team to beat us in the group stages in their home pitch. The final is probably on next Saturday week, more details to follow. Panel; Davy Tobin, Robbie Geary, Jake Beecher, Darragh Mulcahy, Padraig Roche, Jake Neville, Cathal Geary, John Paul Lucey, Jordan Henley (0-1), Dylan Mangan, Ryan Grey (0-8), Edward Hynes (0-1), Darragh Buckley, Kelvyn O' Farrell (0-4), Ian Beecher, Tom Roche (0-1), Edward O' Neill, Alan Buckley, Shane Ryan, Billy Hynes.
