U13 HL Final V Aghabullogue – 1/10

Shamrocks 2-11, Aghabullogue 0-14

Shamrocks U13 hurlers brought the curtain down on a glorious season with a victory over the home team Aghabullogue in the u13 hurling league final in Coachford on Saturday. This group of players have bonded together for the past few seasons and have proved to be the shinning light for the club over the past two seasons.

Both teams were unbeaten all season so something had to give at the final whistle. We started brightly and soon had some points on the score sheet and when we scored the all important first goal a small bit of day light emerged between the two teams. Back came Aghabullogue before half time and some fine points from their free taker had the teams level at half time on a score line of 1-07 to 0-10

The second half was the same affair with both teams matching each other with some fine points. Shamrocks were awarded a close in free with ten minutes to go and a bullet of a shot found the back of the net to leave us five points to the good. Again back came the home team and brought the score back to three points entering injury time. They were awarded a twenty meter free with the last puck of the game but to our delight the backs did their job and cleared the ball to the delight of the travelling supporters.

This meant that the double was achieved for 2022 having won the football a few weeks ago. Great credit must go to all the players on the panel, to their families who traveled every where this year with them and to the coaching staff of Andrew O’Neill, Adrian Doolin, Brendan Barrett, Jason Browne and Stephen Keane
