Monday 09 Sep 2019U12 Hurling - Final

Kilbrittain, 18:30PM

Barryroe 3-07 (16) Argideen Rangers 1-06 (9)

Barryroe took on neighbours Timoleague in an entertaining final of the U12 Div 1 Hurling Cup in Kilbrittain on Monday evening last. Barryroe started well and after an early point for Timoleague they hit the front through a well taken goal by Adam Sexton. Timoleague, with the wind at their backs, gradually came more into the game and again took the lead scoring an unanswered 1-02 midway through the first half. Barryroe finished the half strongly however and helped by a goal from the stick of in-form midfielder Luke Murphy, they led at the short whistle by 2-03 to 1-04.

With the wind now at their backs, Barryroe continued to press home their advantage at the start of the second half and hurling with great skill and determination - and with Dermot Dineen particularly dominant at full-back - they never looked like relinquishing their hard earned lead.

Congratulations to the entire Barryroe panel who can all be satisfied with their performances on the night and with their contributions throughout the hurling season. Credit too must go to a gallant Argideen Rangers team who played their part in an exciting and sporting final and to referee Michael O’Mahony for his handling of the game.

Team: Aaron Fleming (capt.), Dermot Dineen, Ben O’Dwyer, Sean Flynn, Mike Collins, Kelan Casey, Luke Murphy (2-4, 0-1 free), Jamie Collins (0-3), Dylan Kelly, Michael O’Donovan, Adam Sexton (1-0), Se Gannon, Travis O’Sullivan. Subs: Cillian Coakley, Ian Whelton, Lorcan Hayes, Padraig Whelton, David James Hitz, Conrad Murphy, Riley O’Donovan. Referee: Michael O’Mahony (Kilbrittain).

After the game the victorious Barryroe U12 hurlers embarked on a celebratory tour of the parish before returning to the clubhouse for some deserved post game refreshments, kindly sponsored by Padraig Collins of Arkil Quarries – thanks Paudie.
