Minors Hurlers dig deep twice in a week to reach league final

Our Minors hurlers were forced to dig deep twice in the space of a week with two hard fought wins away to second placed Thomas Davis last Wednesday and at home to Crumlin on Monday.

On Wednesday evening, Brigids rallied from conceding a goal in the first few minutes to lead at half time 1-05 to 1-04 with Cian O Doherty grabbing the goal.

Despite conceding two quick goals to fall behind by five points, all players redoubled their efforts and led by a superb second half display by Karl Rogers, with two goals, turned the game. Tadhg O Shea and Brian O Malley put in excellent performances also to help see the lads over the line, 3-12 to 3-11.

On Monday evening, the lads followed this up with superb win against Crumlin on Monday 2-11 to 2-09 to finish top of the league with an excellent all round display to fight back having gone behind by 5 points midway through second half. The lads have now qualified for the league final!

Well done to all the panel and management team.

Minor Hurlers V Thomas Davis: Brian O Malley, Ryan O Connor, Sean O Malley, Ciaran Galvin, Mark Kavanagh, Tadhg O Shea, Oisin Finnerty, Cian O Doherty, Eoin Mc Auley, Karl Rogers, John Hendrick, Darragh Mc Gabhann, Conor Timoney.
