U15 Hurlers Remain Unbeaten

Both U15 Hurling Teams remain unbeaten after 2 rounds of the league.

After an opening round win for our Division 1 side over Kildalkey 2 weeks previous our lads travelled to Baconstown to take on a strong Na Fianna outfit who they had an epic tussle with in the Féile just 10 days previous, Na Fianna came out on top by 2 pts on that occasion.

On a perfect evening for hurling both teams didn’t disappoint their supporters and went at it hammer and thongs from the throw in. Jack Hand raised and early green flag for The Gaeils which was soon cancelled out by a Ben Healy goal the the other end.

Michael Gormley and Ross McDonnell were well on top at Midfield with points from Gormley and Eoin Smith keeping the scoreboard ticking over. Healy was causing all sorts of problems for the Gaeils defence at the other end but Gaeil Colmcille/ Loughcrew Gaels did have the edge at the break.

Na Fianna got to grips a bit better after the break with more points from Ben Healy but a superb point from Conor Tunny and 2 more from Charlie Fox and Michael Gormley put the men from North Meath back in front. 3 unanswered points from Na Fianna then put them ahead once more with time almost up, there was time for one more Gaeils attack and the hard working Eoin Smith won himself a free after a darting run through the Na Fianna defence. Eoin calmly split the uprights to level the game at 2-11 apiece and with that came the final whistle.

Gaeil Colmcille/Loughcrew Gaels: Ben Thornton, Adam D’Arcy, Luke Mckeown, Rory Smith, Frankie Mcelherron, Mark Halpin, Evan Connell, Michael Gormley, Ross McDonnell, Eoin Smith, Charlie Fox, Conor Tunney, Conor Larkin, Jack Hand, Cillian Burke.

Meanwhile at the same time, Kilskyre provided the backdrop for our Division 3 encounter with Ratoath.

After a draw v Clan na Gael in round 1 the lads knew they needed a huge performance here and by god did they give it. 3 of the starting team had less than 60 mins competitive hurling under their belts they were quick to adapt and get to the pace of the game. Aodhan Early just returning between the sticks after a 3 month injury was solid and his accurate puck outs provided the launchpad for the Gaeil Colmcille Loughcrew Gaels attack.

Newcomer Liam McDonnell settled in well in the No.5 shirt while Conan Clarke and Eanna Morris beside him defended well with Eanna leading many attacks from the half back line.

Ruairi Carry on the edge of the square had nothing but goals on his mind and bagged 3 for himself. Fionn Sheridan was industrious as ever around the middle third raising a green flag and a couple of whites. Donnacha Ryan enjoyed a new lease of life in the 40 chipped in with 5 points included a couple of frees.

Having led by 8 pts at the break the Gaeils knew Ratoath were going to come at them in the second half and they did, they introduced Lorcan McGowan and Eoghan Murphy around the middle of the park and narrowed the gap to a solitary point. Ratoath had a free with the last puck of the game to level things up but Aodhan Early was glad to see Lorcan McGowans effort sail wide with all 3 points secured in the league.
A superb team performance from the lads who now look forward to a visit from Kiltale on May 15th.

Gaeil Colmcille/Loughcrew Gaels: Aodhan Early, Matthew Lynch, Adam Gillespie, Ciaran Walsh, Liam McDonnell, Conan Clarke, Eanna Morris, Fionn Sheridan, Simon Fox, Anthony Gallagher, Donnacha Ryan, Luke Dardis, James Carolan, Ruairi Carry, Hugo Morris.
