Junior A Hurling Championship

posted 25 May 2015, 04:13 by Newcastle Gaa
Newcastle played the first round of the junior A hurling championship against St. Patrick's in Ned Hall park on Sunday last, May 24th. Newcastle started well opening with a point but the half time score was 0-11 to 0-7 to St Pats despite Newcastle playing with a strong breeze in the first half.
Newcastle played much better in the second half against the wind, although it took 10 minutes to record our first score of the second half. A Newcastle goal in the last 5 minutes cut the deficit to 3 points but St Pats scored 2 more points to leave the final score 1-10 to 1-15. Overall, it was a good performance considering 2 players were out injured. Best wishes to Ger Corcoran & Caoimhin McGrath who were injured in the second half. The team and subs were: Eanna O'Flynn, Paudie O' Shea, Conor Grant, Emmet Prendergast, Evan Morrissey, Brian Sweeney, Daniel Kennedy, Tommy Sweeney, Caoimhin McGrath, Barry Hickey, Vinny Carroll, James Lonergan Jnr, Andrew Fitzpatrick, Ger Corcoran and Brian Hyland. Subs: Shane Hickey for James Lonergan Jnr, Tomas O Dwyer for Brian Sweeney, Will Kennedy for Evan Morrissey, Ray Hallinan for Andrew Fitzpatrick and John O' Halloran for Ger Corcoran.
