Ballygarvan 3-8, Shamrocks 1-7
Once again the young men that entered the fray tonight against Ballygarvan have done themselves proud. Yes they were beaten, but once I see fight in a team up to the final whistle and players come to the sideline looking exhausted, I know they have done all that any mentor will expect. They have given their all.
Ballygarvan were older and bigger but this minor squad of ours have in some cases four years of minor left. Lead by the elders Seán O’Brien, Luke Garvan and Brian Coffin, who gave of their all, as usual, the younger players rose to the grade again. D Scriven was once again outstanding in mid field. At only fourteen A O Grady only missed one point from frees contributing a massive 1-5 of the team tally. All of these from frees won by the hard work of his team mates.
Once again a big thank you to the parents that drove and to the mentors on the line. This observer was once again proud of a Shamrock teams display.
Next week the minor hurlers play Grenagh another tough test.
