Sean Treacys Juvenile G.A.A. Notes.
U-14 West Football Championship Final:
We just failed to take this title on Monday last, our boys gave it their all but were just beaten by a fine Kickhams side. We got off to a great start, with two early goals, but we lost the ball on another charge forward and the opposition broke away to get a goal. This brought them into the game. Points were swapped before the half time whistle. In the second half we were out of the blocks early with another point and then two goal chances went narrowly wide. We stared to be over cautious in approaching the ball or tackles and the Kickhams scored a goal and added a number of points to see out the game. The Sean Treacy boys went down in a gallant and fair manner and still have a league final to contest.
U-12 Hurling: The season began on Thursday evening last for the u-12 hurlers; the opposition was a Galtee Rovers / Aherlow combination. Our young team in the E competition were up first. They showed a great attitude but were beaten by a more experienced side. Then the A group game was played, a game of honest hurling at a good pace which, we won the evening by 2-05 to 1-05.
U-14 West Football League Final: The boys were in action in action against Rosegreen on a wet Monday evening in Anacarty. We attacked from the first whistle and maintained the same attitude throughout, leading at half time by 2-06 to 0-01. The trend continued in the second half with a final score of 6-11 to 0-01. It was a clinical display that the team has threatened all season, we were just that bit more hungry on the night than the game Rosegreen side.
U-12 Hurling: Our “A” team travelled to Cashel to play the host team in the latest stage of the competition. The lads were up against a big, fast strong side. It was no surprise to find us chasing the game from early on with our young side most of whom are under age next year.
