Clondrohid 8-12, Shamrocks 3-3
Shamrocks u14 season ran over a big pothole in Clondrohid on Thursday night as they were well beaten by the home side by 24 points.
Unfortunately, it was easily Shamrocks worst performance of a battling season but this Clondrohid team were the best team the lads played all season and had no obvious weak links on the team, they could all play ball. Shamrocks were actually doing well up until their normal sleep time – 5 minutes until halftime – when they conceded 3-2 in the blink of an eye to go in at HT losing 4-6 to 2-3. Up until that point of proceedings, a game refereed by manager Pa Andrews as no referee turned up, Shamrocks had played some nice ball and were level 2-2 to 1-5, goals by Shane Downey and a cracking team move that ended up with centre back Evan Seymour billowing the back of the net. Seán Browne also scored a nice point from play.
However, the bottom fell out of the challenge in the lead up to halftime and in reality, the heads were gone at that stage. Clondrohid completely dominated the second half and ran out comfortable winners, despite Seán Browne scoring a Shamrocks goal midway through. This Shamrocks team are conceding far too many goals (19 in 3 matches) so hopefully that can be worked on in training, before the championship quarter final against either St Catherines or Castlelyons on Friday June 20th. In the meanwhile, its u12/u14 hurling training next Wednesday at 6pm.
We’d like to thank all our players, parents and our underage Chairman John Twomey and John Jordan for making the journey out West on Thursday night.
