It was another busy week in the club. We had plenty of action in many of the different age grades throughout the week.
Last Monday our minors got their first win of the championship beating a tough St Kevin’s side.
This was a much needed win after their narrow loss to Bray Emmets the previous week. The game finished 0-09 to 0-07. The scorers were Fionn Luddy (0-03), Cathal O’Brien (0-02) Ryan Kavanagh (0-02), Kieran Fitzpatrick (0-01) and Harry Hodgkinson (0-01).
The lads will host AGB this Monday at 7pm in Dunbur.
On Wednesday our u12 camogie team played against Kilcoole. The rain mostly held off and they got to wear their new Tesco sponsored jerseys. The training continues at East Glendalough School for u10 and u12 on Thursday evenings, All new players welcome.
Well done to the u13 hurlers blue team who started their campaign off with a good win away to Bray Emmets on Thursday evening. There were some great scores taken on the night.
U14 Division 1 girls
Well done to the u14 Div 1 girls who produced a fantastic comeback to get a well-deserved draw against AGB in Arklow on Saturday morning. The girls had no subs which meant all the girls had to give it their all to the very final whistle and that’s what they did, scoring a few late points to get a well-deserved draw. It finished 4-5 to 3-8.
The Senior Hurlers kicked off their championship campaign versus a good Carnew Emmets side.
Our lads started the brighter as George ‘Bee’ O’Brien was in flying form scoring a total of 0-06 points on the day.
Although Carnew came out on top in this clash winning by three points 0-14 to 0-17.
The team was Eoghan O Mahony, Christy Moorehouse, Gerry Connors, Dale Quinn, Robert Mofitt, John Connors, Shane Doyle, Niall Hanton (0-01), Ricky Quinn, Patrick Murphy, Andy O’Brien (0-06), James ‘Jimzer O’Brien (0-01), Chris Kavanagh, John ‘Dee O’Brien and George ‘Bee O’Brien (0-06).
