Senior Hurling

Gael Scoil Cnoc Liamhna 1-2

Scoil Mhuire 1-2

Scoil Mhuire boys’senior team opened their campaign with a thrilling draw in Knocklyon last Thursday.

This was a tricky away fixture and it didn’t look good at half time when we went in level at 0-1 each despite having wind advantage in the first half. However, there must have been something in the half-time drinking water because the Lucan boys upped their game considerably and took a deserved lead thanks to a well-taken Alex Hickey free. Cnoc Liamhna fought back to level matters and both sides had chances to win it in a frenetic finish.

A draw was a fair result between two evenly-matched teams.

Killian Gormley made some vital saves in the closing stages to keep out certain goals.

Seán Treanor had a brilliant second half when switched to defence and his clearing ground strokes were inspirational.

Niall Higgins was a Colossus in defence (check that out on Google if you don’t know what that means)

Diarmuid Keher’s quick wrists got his defence out of  trouble time and again.

Conor Cooper continued where he left off in the blitz with a battling performance in the half back line.

Gareth Kennedy was a class act and turned defence into attack repeatedly.

Kevin Gormley seemed to clone himself. Everywhere you looked , he was there. Great performance

Alex Hickey combined skill with determination to take the battle to the opposition and inspire his team.

Ben O Toole was moved around in  different positions but gave 100% at all times . Captain for the day, Ben was particularly effective when the going got tough towards the end.

Lorcán O Reilly had his best ever match for Scoil Mhuire. When he wasn’t on the ball he was looking for it. Great game.

Daniel Kane obviously recharged his Duracell batteries just before the game. The tougher it gets, the better he plays.

Fionn Buckley had a quiet first half but then sprung into action after half time and was very unlucky not to score.

Luke Cahill was winning his first cap for Scoil Mhuire’s hurling team, and he brought the same level of effort and determination as he did to the football team earlier in the year. A great warrior !

Robert Keher left a gallon of sweat on the pitch after him. Never stopped working and showed some lovely touches.
