On Thursday last we played two games in the U12 County Hurling League. We played Adare first and won on a scoreline of Murroe Boher 4-8 Adare 3-5 ,we got off to a great start with a super goal from Jack O Carroll followed by points from Calum Ryan and Michael Ryan. Adare threw everything at us but some great defending from Cillian O Shea, Sean O Brien and Jay Ryan kept them at bay. We led by two points at half time. Another great goal by Jack O Carroll and by the hard working Calum Ryan sealed Adare’s hopes. Michael Ryan Colin Hackett Oisin Kelly and Mark Cusack worked very hard hooking and blocking while Stephen Moore was outstanding in the second half. This was a real workmanlike performance against a good Adare team.
Team : Luke Moran, Stephen Moore, Jay Ryan, James Collopy, Sean O Brien, Cillian O Shea, Michael Ryan (1-4),Calum Ryan (1-1,) Oisin Kelly, Michael Hourigan (0-1) Colin Hackett, Mark Cusack, Jack O Carroll (2-2)
In the second match we played Hospital Herbertstown, again we got off to a great start with goals from our midfielders Jack Oliver and James Collopy and we were well on top. Oisin Kelly and Johnny Fitzgerald were proving to be a handful for the Hospital backs. In our own back line Killian Quaid and Euan Sheridan were dealing very well with the Hospital forward line. We led by nine points at half time and with Liam Quaid and Mark Cusack finding the net in the second half we put the game beyond doubt. Jay Ryan when moved to centre had an excellent game. Again this was a good workmanlike performance and a great win on a scoreline of Murroe Boher 6-4 Hospital Herbertstown 1-4 Team : Luke Moran, Jay Ryan, Stephen Moore, Killian Quaid, Jack Sullivan, Euan Sheridan, Jack Oliver, James Collopy, Liam Quaid, Colin Hackett, Mark Cusack, Oisin Kelly, Johnny Fitzgerald
