Cois Bhride 1 - 16 St. Patricks 3 - 16
Last Saturday we traveled to Fraher Field to take on St Patricks in the Minor Hurling Division 2 final replay . Another cold windy evening played under lights both teams gave us another exciting game . Playing with the breeze in the first half our lads had the upper hand but were unlucky to concede 2 goals and only led by 2 points at half time 0 - 9 to 2 - 1 .
Again playing against the wind in the second half we knew we would have to work hard . And yet again this team responded to that challenge . We conceded a goal and 4 points to our 1 point which left us trailing by 4 points heading into the last quarter . But with another mighty effort our lads leveled the match in the 63rd minute with a goal from Mark Dalton to leave the score 1 - 13 to 3 - 7 and send the game into extra time .
Unfortunately for our players the effort exerted in that last quarter took its toll on a lot of our lads and St Pats finished the game the stronger and we finally succumbed to a better team .
Our boys can feel very proud of themselves for a fantastic season in this grade . They started football in March reaching the semi final and beating the eventual county champions in the league section . And the hurling with those fantastic wins over the two best eastern teams in the quarter and semi and two big days in the final and replay . When you consider the age profile of this team and to think we were picking from a panel of 18 players they definitely punched above weight .
Team ; Cathal Hunt , Eoghan Lenehan , Dean Beecher (0-1) , William Cunningham , Liam Motherway (0-2) , Shaun Henley , Ivan O Neill (Capt) , Tom Dalton(0-1) , Eoin McGrath(0-1) , Ben Aherne , Kieran Crawford(0-1) ,Ciaran McCarthy , Padraig Hynes , Mark Stewart(0-1) , Mark Dalton(1-9) , Jake Chambers , Cian Hurley , Michael Condon .

And finally I would like to thank my fellow selectors Declan and Liam , coaches Tim Lenehan , Shane Roche and Shaun O Sullivan , Physio Thomas Goulding , the waterboys , jersey washers , parents who drove to the matches , Cois Bhride juvenile committee , sponsor Mike O Neill , all our supporters and Mick and staff at Kearneys Restaurant for feeding the team after the two finals . Also a mention for Denis Tobin for having the field ready and available for matches and training .
