U12 Hurling Division 1a
Carnew 3-4 Luke O’Tooles 2-7
Carnew had to settle for a draw when they came up against old rivals Luke O’Tooles on Monday April 18th on home turf in Carnew. Pitch conditions were not great but in spite of that a good competitive game of hurling was played. Carnew, who were well on top in the first half, failed to put up enough scores on the scoreboard. This left them under pressure in the second half when O’Tooles had a bit of a purple patch to level up the score at full time.
Carnew started well with a well taken goal by Billy Molloy followed up by Richard Greene who broke through the O’Tooles defence to put the ball in the back of the net. Dan Redmond at centre back took some nice points from frees. Dan Murphy, with his long puck outs, took the pressure off the back line. Although we are in no doubt that we need to improve on our performance this was a fair result for Carnew’s first hurling game of the season.
U12 Footbal Div 2
Carnew traveled to Ballymoney on Monday 21st April to take part in round 2 of the league against AGB and came away with the narrowest of victories when, man of the match Ben Gilligan, blasted to the back of the net in the dying moments of the game. Carnew who were short on numbers did well to hold on and come away with a win. Roland Chlechowitz in goal had some fine saves while the back line of Maurice Sheil, Darragh Rawson, Jack Keogh, Cillian Doyle and Conor Neville were kept busy throughout the game. Dan Redmond and Zach Jordon at mid field tried hard. Meanwhile the forward line of Richard Greene, Shane Byrne, Ben Gilligan, Aaron Fitzpatrick and Sean Kenny did what was needed to come away with a victory. Jack Brownrigg and Aaron Conway were also called upon during the game. Two wins out of two games so far; hopefully with a good attendance we can continue on our successful journey at our next outings.
