Ex­cit­ing fare as Tom Ryan In­door Hurl­ing Tour­na­ment be­gins

Bray People - - Bray Sport -

THE TOM Ryan In­door Hurl­ing Tour­na­ment for Un­der 10’s, or­gan­ised by St. Pa­trick’s GAA Club, which is now in its sev­enth year, com­menced with some great action at the Ark­low Sports Cen­tre.

This tour­na­ment has by now be­come a fix­ture in the un­der­age hurl­ing scene in Wick­low and is again very well sup­ported this year, with eight dif­fer­ent clubs par­tic­i­pat­ing.

Each team com­pleted three rounds of games on the first day, with all games be­ing very well con­tested. Liam Mel­lowes, Glenealy, Michael Dwyers and Ark­low Rocks showed very well in the first se­ries of games.

Liam Mel­lowes fin­ished the day on full points, with Glenealy, Michael Dwyers and Ark­low Rocks on four points each.

In the fea­tured game, Liam Mel­lowes faced up to Gle- nealy and it proved to be a very com­pet­i­tive af­fair, in­deed.

It was nip and tuck in the early stages, with no quar­ter taken or given.

Eoin Cullen fi­nally broke the dead­lock and opened the scor­ing af­ter his shot de­ceived the Glenealy de­fence.

Ross Coady added a sec­ond, re­act­ing very smartly af­ter a great save by the Gle­neay goalie. Shane Halpin added a third with a crisp strike, again af­ter a great save by the Glenealy keeper.

Eoin Cullen, and Tom Sum­mers added fur­ther goals for the North Wex­ford club, to run out win­ners on a score­line of 5-0.

Glenealy never threw in the towel how­ever and had fine per­form­ers in Cian Staunton, Gary Hughes and Jonathan O’Neill, and the fi­nal score­line did not re­flect the in­ten­sity of their ef­forts.
