Erins Own hosted Under 8’s from James Stephens, St Lachtains and Clara at a warm and dry Ballycomey on Saturday morning. We were beaten in our first game by the Village boys by the odd score in seven in a very competitive match highlighted by some great defending in the first half by James Kenny, Adam Stone and goalie Luca Downey. A draw was missed out on when a 60 yard score from a puckout by Ashley Kerr had to be disallowd under U8 rules. Our second game was against St Lachtains and we ran out comfortable winners with strong midfield play from Shane Coogan and Liam Doyle and good performances from Ciaran Meagher and James Hogan in the forwards. Our final game against Clara was very competitive with the sides level at 2-02 a piece with 5 minutes to go until a quick goal and a point from Luca Downey followed a couple of late goals saw the Comer boys home.
Panel James Kenny, Ciaran Meagher, Adam Stone, Liam Doyle, Luca Downey, Jack Brennan, Dylan Stynes Leigh, Alan Smyth, Ewan Connery, Cathal O’Reilly, Ashley Kerr, Shane Coogan, James Hogan and John Kenny.
Erin’s Own U-12s have been busy over the last two weeks, playing four games against Clara, St Martins, Rower Inistioge and St Lachtains. All bar the St Martins game, were Go Games matches, with the locals running out impressive winners in all. The boys took on our neighbours in the finals of the Callan tournament, putiing in a fine performance to finish comfortable winners on a 10-14 to 1-1 scoreline.
