U14 Hurling Clontarf vs O’Tooles
Clontarf comprehensibly won this friendly against O’Tooles. Clontarf fielded 15 made up of 7 U14’s and 8 U13’s.
Clontarf were very strong leading at half time 6-5 to O’Tooles 2-3. Conditions were atrocious with torrential rain almost throughout.
In the second half Contarf moved their full back up to half forward and vis-a-versa. This led to a more interesting second half – particularly for the new full back line.
Conditions remained poor and Clontarf remained in control of the game. Best for Clontarf were Stephen Smith, who was the rock when he moved to full back position in second half, Luke Holden in goals and frozen ! Declan Monaghan, ‘Caffro’ McCaffery and Aaron Casey.
Halloween horrors for the U12 footballers with both A and B sides going down to heavy defeats.
U10 footballers were in action against st Brigids and turned in a fantastic performance coming home 161-47 winners. Man of the match performances by rioghan McCarthy, Eoin Quigley and Daire Vickers. Well done to all, keep up the good work.
Under 8 Football:
Cluain Tarbh Under 8's welcomed St Vincent's to St Paul's on Saturday in what turned out to be a well fought local derby. The weather made it a really great morning for football. Cluain Tarbh started slowly in all the first round of matches and showed a little too much respect to Vincents. The second round of matches proved far more rewarding with strong scores from Cluain Tarbh evening out the contest but it wasn't enough to haul back Vinent's with the final combined score coming in at 82 points for Cluain Tarbh against 108 points for Vincents. Well done to all the boys for their efforts.
Well done also to the 3 newly qualified referees making their debut in Go Games who all did great.
