Erin’s Own brought 23 young hurlers to Coon on Thursday evening. As St Martins had similar numbers each club fielded two teams so everyone played a full 40 minutes of hurling. Both games were very competitive with Erins Own winning the first game by a point with excellent play by James and John Kenny and great defending by Dylan, Ewan and Katie Clarke. Panel: Ciara Brennan, James Kenny, Kiel Smyth, Alan Smyth, John Kenny, Katie Clarke, Ewan Connery, David Allen, Michael Rowe, Joe Rowe and Dylan Stynes Leigh.
In the second game a strong defence and a bit of luck kept St Martin’s to one score with Brian Holland, Adam Stone and Luca Downey starring in full back line. The midfield was a great battle with Shane Coogan and Liam Doyle keeping a good share of ball into our forwards who led by a terrier like James Hogan saw goals for Jack, Ciaran, Cathal, James and Sarah. Highlight of the game was two exceptional points from play by Ashley Kerr one from each sideline.
Panel:Ciaran Meagher, Adam Stone, Liam Doyle, Luca Downey, Jack Brennan, Sarah Smyth, Cathal O’Reilly, Ashley Kerr, Shane Coogan, James Hogan, Owen Comerford Jones and Brian Holland.
