St Molleran’s U-12 hurlers started their City League campaign in the best possible way with a victory over Na Gaeil last Friday.

The boys in maroon and white had the upper hand from the start of the match and by half-time they led 2-02 to 0-1.

In the second half, St Molleran’s added two early goals to put the game beyond recall.

Na Gaeil rallied towards the end scoring two goals but St Molleran’s were always in control. But for the heroics of Na Gaeil’s keeper, the win would have been far more convincing.

U-12 Team: Walter Comerford, Peter Keane, Gavin Hayes, Kieran Barry, Alan Norris, Richard Comerford(0-1), Dean Dowley, Kyle Quin, Conor Reade(4-01), Josh Power, James Comerford.
