Weekly Notes for 25th June 2017

Junior hurlers v Mount Sion

Our Junior hurlers faced a very experienced and skilful Mount Sion team last Friday evening in Walsh Park and lost the encounter on a scoreline of 0-27 to 0-12.

The difference in the teams was evident after seven minutes when Mount Sion had scored five points while our only answer was an Ian Chester free. Three more points were added to the scoreboard for Mount Sion before Jim Walsh fired over our second point. The team were trying their best but could not cope with the Mount Sion attacks and conceded a total of 15 points in the first have while we ended on 4 points.

The start of the second half saw Mount Sion score a further three points before Ian Chester converted another free. From the 5th minute of the second half until 5 minutes from time both sides exchanged scores with Alex O’Mahony and Johnnie Walsh converting tricky scores while Ian Chester was at hand to convert any frees. The final whistle saw the team convert eight second half points but could not match the Mount Sion tally. Next match for the team is an away match to Passage in the middle of July.


Congratulations to Juvenile Club Chairman Eric Furlong and coach Des Brennan on their achievement of walking the entire length of the Greenway from Waterford to Dungarvan last Saturday in aid of WASSA (Waterford Autism Social and Sports Action). Please support towards this charity when you next see the lads.
