The Unstoppables and Carraig Cup Teams
Saturday last, 29th October was finals day for the U7 and U8 teams in their parish leagues. In the U7 final, ‘Squad X’ took on ‘Carraig Warriors’ with the first half played with the big ball and the second with the smaller one. Not even some dodgy refereeing decisions could seperate these sides, and the match finished in a draw. Congratulations to all, on a wonderful display of skill and endeavour. Some individual awards were also presented to some very worthy recipients.
Evan O Leary picked up a Man of the Match award for todays’ final, while Cillian Burns was awarded for most improved hurler and Dillon Manley got the nod for most improved footballer. Well done to all and keep up the practice over the winter. Thanks also to the coaching team of Ken Curtin, Donal Foley and Shane Horgan for the huge effort put in throughout the year.
The U8 final saw ‘The Unstoppables’ take on ‘Carraig Cup’ . In the first half the Unstoppables raced into a commanding three goal lead while playing with the big ball, but on the changeover, once Carraig Cup put on their helmets and picked up their hurleys they started to chip away at that 3 goal lead. With a few minutes to play the sides were all square after an excellent flicked goal by David O Donovan. Both sides traded points but could not be seperated by the time the final whistle blew. This was genuinely a hard fought match with nothing between the sides. Awards presented on the day were : Alex Flynn for his Man of the match performance in todays final, Chris O Keeffe for most improved hurler 2016 and both Ciaran Tattan and Cillian O Keeffe for most improved footballers 2016. Well done to all the players for their huge effort throughout the year.
Finally, a word of thanks to their excellent coaches who gave so much of their time during the year- mile buiochas Denis Harte, Mike Flynn, Kevin Maguire agus Mick Ryan.
Enjoy the break but keep up the practice!😆😆
