U12 and U14 games June 2012

Under 12 Callan Tournament.

Erin’s Own under 12s played two rounds of the Callan Under 12 Tournament in the last week. On Tuesday last week the Comer boys travelled to John’s Park to take on the O’Loughlin boys. In a very good game the Comer boys found themselves trailing early on to a well worked O Loughlins goal. Gradually as the half went on the locals got to grips with the match and playing some direct hurling the found the net through James Brennan, Kevin Holland and Kevin Brennan. Comer piled on the pressure in the second half to run out easy winners. In their second match of the weekend they Comer boys again faced City opposition when they entertained the boys from The Village on Saturday in Ballycomey. After a great start Comer found the net a number of times to build up a good lead. With both teams playing good direct hurling it was the Comer boys who went to the break in the lead. The village boys had some chances but Comers efficiency in front of the goals was the difference between the two teams. Comer ran out winners on a scoreline of 5-4 to 1-1.

In the the under 14 league played last Monday evening week in Ballycomey Erin’s Own and Lisdowney served up a cracker. Played in ideal conditions the Comer boys set out their intentions from the first ten minutes when they and raced into a seven point lead with Ross Connolly getting a great goal and following it up with a second five minutes later. The comer boys never took their foot of the gas throughout the first half and were worthy leaders at the break. The second half was tit for tat in the first ten minutes with Comer keeping their lead up around the seven to ten point lead. However Lisdowney grew into the game and coming to the last few minutes they took the lead again. But the Comer lads kept to their task and Sean Buggy shot the all important equaliser to give both teams a share of the spoils.
