EN­NISKERRY

Ju­nior Hurl­ing League - St. Pat’s 5-21, En­niskerry/Kil­mac 2-9 - With ru­n­away lead­ers St Pat’s putting up big scores on all and sundry, it was al­ways go­ing to be a tall or­der for our lads in Dun­bur last Wed­nes­day night but to their credit they dug deep and put up a de­cent tally them­selves, prob­a­bly the most Pats have con­ceded in any in­di­vid­ual game this year so far.

With both Micky and Mark out in­jured, Paul Ka­vanagh deputised in goals and ac­quit­ted him­self well with safe han­dling and good puck outs, long and short to col­leagues in space.

With Pat’s creat­ing chances on the over­lap, they went in 3-13 to 0-5 ahead at the break.

En­niskerry/Kil­mac came into it more in the sec­ond pe­riod and with James Cahill pun­ish­ing any foul­ing by the home side, two well taken Christy Fox goals gave us some­thing to cheer. All in all a good all round per­for­mance against a very strong side which down the road come cham­pi­onship time will stand to us.

Team: Paul Ka­vanagh, John Flynn, Ross Lally, Bill Dick­en­son, Luke Dil­lon, Clin­ton Donoghue, Nathan Cronin, James Cahill (0-6) Ger Driver, John Driver (0-2), Christy Fox (2-1), Ge­off Cahill, Ja­son Mur­ray, Gar­ret Power, Ja­son Doyle. Subs: Gary Ka­vanagh, Rus­sell Giles, Barry Driver.

Michael Freery Cup fi­nal - Our Un­der-17 Wick­low hurl­ing team won a very ex­cit­ing fi­nal in Nowlan Park, Kilkenny, against a very good West­meath team on a score line of Wick­low 5-13, West­meath 1-14 last Satur­day.

Our very own club­man Bran­don Scully was the cor­ner-for­ward (15) on the day and put in great ef­fort through­out the match set­ting up a score and was un­lucky not to put the ball in the net in a scram­ble in the West­meath goal.

Con­grats to Bran­don and Wick­low from all in En­niskerry GAA Club. Hope­fully this win will give hurl­ing in the county the boost it needs.

FER­GAL ÓGS

Men’s hurl­ing - Our men’s hurl­ing team were due to play Shil­le­lagh on Wed­nes­day, but re­ceived a walkover.

Men’s foot­ball - Our men’s foot­ballers were due to play Rath­new on Thurs­day but the match was post­poned due to both teams hav­ing a short­age of play­ers on the night.

Un­der-8s/Un­der-10s - Our Un­der-8s and Un­der-10s foot­ballers played En­niskerry on Fri­day, with two crack­ing games of foot­ball had. There were stand­out per­for­mances from Joshua Tem­ple and Theo McKenna from our Un­der-8s, while the Un­der-10s saw a few new faces in the team, with Cian Egan, Caitlin Egan and Adam Mur­ray be­ing in good form.

Many thanks to En­niskerry for host­ing the match.

Un­der-12s - Our Un­der-12s hurl­ing team were also in ac­tion on Fri­day evening, tak­ing on Kil­macanogue.

Kil­macanogue were the first team to get on the score sheet, scor­ing a goal in the open­ing min­utes.

It wasn’t long be­fore Cian Byrne in mid­field lev­elled the tie with a crack­ing goal, fol­low­ing a great show of in­di­vid­ual skill. Kil­mac got their first point of the game to edge them­selves ahead with Byrne re­spond­ing again with a long range point from play to reign in the Kil­mac side.

Lance Wilde was im­pres­sive in mid­field, win­ning his share of puck outs, and scored his first point from mid­field to put Fer­gal Ógs ahead.

Both sides were evenly matched, trad­ing score for score with Cian Byrne net­ting an­other brace of goals, ac­cumalt­ing a hat­trick 20 min­utes in.

When Kil­mac looked for a re­ply, Jack Allen was on call to make a few vi­tal saves, while Rhyss Wilde, Caitlin Doyle and Shane Buta were in fine form at the back with Buta scrap­ping for ev­ery ball and lay­ing it off for Wilde and Doyle to drive it back up the pitch.

Oisin Allen was the third player in the mid­field trio, and made some clever runs, while demon­strat­ing an im­pres­sive workrate to win the ball back when not in pos­s­e­sion. The teams work rate en­sured that Kil­macs ‘s scor­ing was kept to a min­i­mum with two con­verted Cian Byrne frees send­ing the two teams in at half-time with noth­ing sep­a­rat­ing them.

In the sec­ond half, Jake Peare was un­lucky not to bag a goal in the open­ing min­utes, with Eleanor Gil­roy, Ross McA­teer and Saoirse O’Han­lon ready to pounce on any ball that came their way in the for­ward line.

Both teams con­tin­ued to trade points, with nei­ther be­ing al­lowed to pull far ahead. Some good de­fen­sive pres­sure from both sides lead to a few wides in the lat­ter stages, with some bril­liant block­ing and hook­ing deny­ing scor­ing op­por­tu­ni­ties for both teams in the dy­ing min­utes.

By the fi­nal whis­tle, there was noth­ing be­tween the two teams, with the tie end­ing all even.

Many thanks to Kil­macanogue for host­ing the match.

The Fer­gal Ógs team: Jack Allen, Rhyss Wilde, Shane Buta, Caitlin Doyle, Lance Wilde, Cian Byrne, Jake Peare, Ross McA­teer, Sam, Eleanor Gil­roy, Saoirse O’Han­lon, Oisin Allen
