It was a very busy weekend on the pitch with 17 matches taking place. First up was our U16 footballers in their re-arranged game against Maurs in the first round of the championship, on Thursday evening in the Bogies. It was a tight game with both teams having periods of dominance, but our lads produced a 5 point victory in front of a large crowd. They now go on to play Peregrines in the next round.
There was another good crowd in the Bogies on Friday night to see the U15 hurling game against O’Tooles. Again the crowd seemed to spur the lads on, and they played some of their best hurling yet, and recorded a great 5-8 to 2-4 victory to get their season back on track. Keep an eye on this team during the year!
On Saturday our 5 go-game teams were all in football action with the U11′s earning some well deserved medals in their blitz out in Garristown. Our U13′s were beaten by Kilmacud and the U16 hurling game against O’Tooles was called off. This meant the only game in the afternoon was our senior hurling league tie out in Lucan. They played with a strong breeze in the first half and went in 5 points up at the break. Our lads worked hard in the second half and had drawn level by the 45th minute. A soft goal then put Lucan 3 points up and undone a lot of our hard work. It was ultimately the goal that was the difference between the sides, we had 2 goal chances in the last 5 mins but didnt take them and Lucan won on a scoreline of 1-12 to 0-11.
Sunday was another busy day and the day’s action got under way with our U13 camogie girls taking on Whitehall in the Bogies. This was a top of the table clash and both teams gave everything in a cracking game. Our girls were unlucky to be on the loosing side, but they are still well in the hunt for promotion and will luck to get their winning run back on track next week. Our minor footballers produced some great attacking football to beat Na Fianna in their league clash also in the Bogies.
It was a mixed day for our 2 junior hurling teams, the first team beat Marks and the second team lost to plunketts. In Tallaght the lads ran up a good lead with the first half breeze and always kept their hosts at arms length in the second and were well worth their 13 point victory. This win sets them up for their championship campaign which kicks off later this month.
