Un­der-12 in­door hurl­ing tour­na­ment gets un­der way

Bray People - - Bray Sport -

HOT ON the heels of the Un­der-10s, The Tom Ryan In­door Hurl­ing Tour­na­ment for Un­der-12s, or­gan­ised by St. Pa­trick’s GAA Club, which is now in its sev­enth year, com­menced on Satur­day at the Ark­low Sports Cen­tre.

The Un­der-12 tour­na­ment 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. Barn­dar­rig and Michael Dwyers have hit the ground run­ning, with full points af­ter the first round of games. Glenealy are the top of the chas­ing group, hav­ing dropped only two points.

In the fea­tured game, Barn­dar­rig faced up to Ark­low Rocks and it proved to be a humdinger, in­deed. It was very close in the early stages, with no quar­ter taken or given. The very im­pres­sive Katie Bouch­ier fi­nally broke the dead­lock and opened the scor­ing, pounc­ing on a re­bound af­ter the goal­keeper made a great save.

Ark­low Rocks de­fended hero­ically af­ter this set­back, but the pres­sure fi­nally told and An­thony Quinn added an­other goal for Barn­dar­rig.

Katie Bouch­ier struck again shortly af­ter­wards with a great strike from dis­tance. But the Ark­low lads didn’t lie down and pulled one back when Jack Fur­long struck a great goal. Barn­dar­rig held out for a win how­ever, on a score­line of 3-1.

As well as the goal scor­ers, Barn­dar­rig had great per­form­ers in An­drew Peter Gilse­nan-Ka­vanagh, and Michael Crow­ley. Cor­mac O’Shea, Ciaran O’Shea, Shane Mel­lon and Ja­son Roche had good games for the Ark­low team.
