No joy for our two teams in action this past weekend as both our Minor Footballers and U14 hurlers bowed out of their respective championships on a gloomy Sunday afternoon.
Our Minors were defeated by a more efficient Ballygarvan side on a 4-06 to 1-07 scoreline in a tough match played in the Carraig na bhFear college pitch, after the original venue of Blarney was deemed unplayable late yesterday morning, understandably after the heavy rain of the previous few hours.
The lads must now regroup and focus on their County Hurling quarter final against Western opposition in a fortnights time.
Our U14 hurlers produced a great second half display in Passage later in the afternoon, but a 3 goal half time lead proved to be too much to bridge, as West Cork Champions Kilbree held on to win. Trailing 3-03 to 0-03 at the break, the lads stormed back into the game in the second half but at the final whistle, the scoreline read 3-07 to 1-09 to the lads from Rossmore. A great performance from our boys who have come on in leaps and bounds all year. Some of their hurling has been top class and if a few more players can be added to the panel, the potential is there to go even further in the years ahead. Keep up the hard work lads!
