U15 HC V Crosshaven – 19/7

Shamrocks 4-17, Crosshaven 3-7

1-8 to 0-1 in the final 11 minutes pushed Shamrocks onto victory over Crosshaven. It was the perfect response to an equalising goal Crosshaven had scored just before this to level things up for the first time; Shamrocks had led all through the game but looked in danger of losing after the goal went in. However, the finishing 11 minutes plus injury time could not have gone better for Shamrocks as straight after the goal, Donal Herlihy split the posts  on the run and this was followed by two great Calum O’Neill points from play to stretch the lead back out to 3 points again.

Then Liam Dorney started to get into the game and his shot from the 21 found the back of the Crosshaven net soon after and that was the insurance they needed to finish with a flurry of scores which to be fair, was harsh on Crosshaven who had played some great hurling up to that point and contributed to a great game of hurling.

Shamrocks had more possession in the first half and led 1-7 to 1-3 with Calum in particular on song from frees in particular. It was a low scoring affair up until the second half when both teams got goals early on. Danny Field for Shamrocks started to influence things as well and he scored 2 goals in the second half along with some nice scores from Luke Jordan and Seamus O’Mahony who got a belt across the shin and had to be helped off the field mid way through the second half. It looked serious but he after sitting it out for 5 minutes he returned to the action – you cant keep this man down.

Overall a good team performance from all.
