Well done to our under 8s who had their first hurling blitz on Saturday in Thurles Gaels. As a result of a great turn out, we were able to field three separate 7 aside teams, who each played three matches!
Great skill and heart shown by all players with huge improvements noted across the field. Thanks to all the parents who came and supported.
Our next blitz is on Saturday, May 28 in Borrisoleigh.
Our under 12s played their last game in this year’s league campaign in Carrick on Suir, against a much fancied Carrick Swan team. We entered the lion’s den with only 11 players, which included our old reliable under 10 player David Hayes, (who played outstanding in goal. We were not fazed one bit by a very strong Swan bunch. From the very second the ball was thrown in our heroes were snapping at everything. Even when Carrick looked the stronger and fitter, Killenaule seemed the more hungry. After two fantastic goal line saves by David Hayes, we conceded two goals in as many minutes and Carrick looked like a team that meant business. Our lads kept fighting away and with scores came from Mark Heffernan [1pt], and 3 points from the hard working Jack Hayes, we got back into the game. Our defence were rock solid for the rest of the half with huge performances coming from David Healy, Andrew O’Connell, Ronan Kelly and Kevin Lawlor. We finished the half with a well worked goal by Kieran Slattery who busted the net with a pile driving shot. Seconds before, Harry Cummins blocked a ball superbly and with his quick thinking supplied the ammo for Kieran’s shot. Half time score was Killenaule 1-4 to Carrick Swans 2-3.
We started the brighter in the second half with our defence playing superbly, midfield dominant and our forwards calling the shots. Another 3 points from Jack Hayes with only 2 points in reply by Carrick we looked like we were going to take the lead. Gavin Ryan was taking down in the penalty box when he was through on goal. Jack Hayes had the task of taking the penalty, which looked like it was nearly 20 metres out. Unfortunately, he barely missed the top corner of the net and the ball whizzed over the bar. Carrick got great heart from this, and maybe caught Killenaule slightly off guard. On one of their few attacks they scored a dubious goal which certainly looked like a free out! Time was running out for Killenaule so they threw caution to the wind and pushed forward but got caught on the break again and after their third attempt at scoring a goal after fine saves from David Hayes Carrick went on to win with the final score Killenaule 1-8, Carrick Swan 4-6.
Team - David Hayes, David Healy, Andrew O Connell, Kevin Lawlor, Ronan Kelly, Jack Hayes( 7pts, 3f, 1pen) Mark Heffernan (1pt) Harry Cummins, Kieran Slattery(1goal),Gavin Ryan and Luke Nolan.
Training on Wednesday at 6.30. Bring your hurleys
The U14 team were disappointed that their last two matches were postponed, and they will have had a three week break without a game. Parents are annoyed with the South Board fixture committee, particularly given the postponements being announced only a few hours before the matches were due to take place. Both matches were to be played on Bank Holiday Mondays, with families making arrangements around these matches, in some cases travelling over a hundred miles, to be back in time. Our team managers are not at fault as they relay the information as soon as it is received. As a club, we are hopeful that there will be improved communication from now on.
Training for U14 at 6.30 on Fridays, starting this Friday 6th May.
Well done to Eoin Barry who is training with Primary Game panel, in preparation for this year’s Munster Championship. Congratulations to members of our Under 14 panel members, who were part of the successful Fethard U13 rugby team. Also included in the congratulations are Paul Kavanagh and Liam O’Dwyer, strong supporters of Killenaule Bord na n-Og.
