LAST WEEK’S RESULTS
City Junior A Hurling Championship: Na Piarsaigh 0-21 Crecora-Manister 0-12
Our junior hurlers were beaten in the first round of the championship against Na Piarsaigh last Saturday in Rathbane. They play Askeaton in the all-county league this Saturday and then have the second round of championship the week after.
Following up on great wins over Monaleen, Na Piarsaigh and Mungret in the city league, our footballers lost out narrowly at the semi-final stage to a strong Kildimo-Pallaskenry side. We started brightly and after the first quarter the scores were level on 1-2 apiece with the goal coming from Damien Kearney. However, from there to the interval, Kildimo-Pallaskenry dominated and despite a second well taken goal by D.Kearney, they led by 3-7 to 2.3 at the break.
In the second half, with much improved performances throughout the field and midfield dominance, we narrowed the gap. Inspired by some brilliant play by Conor Burke and Darrach Skelly, Crecora-Manister took control and but for some wayward shooting could have made the margin much tighter.
In the end, Kildimo-Pallaskenry ran out four point winners. on scoreline 3-11 to 2-10.
