Our U16 Hurlers qualified for the A Co Final when they defeated Nenagh by 2 11 to 0 8 in the semi final played in Templetouhy on Saturday. This was a tougher game than the scoreline would suggest. We played with a gale force wind in the opening half and got off to a great start and lead by 5 points after 7 minutes. But Nenagh settled and fought their way back into the game. A brilliant goal by Jack Lanigan just before half time was crucial for us and we lead by 1 08  to 0 02 at half time. Nenagh , with the aid of the wind, put us under huge pressure in the second half, but our backs were outstanding and never allowed them to get the goal they needed. At the other end of the field our forwards worked tirelessly to make sure Nenagh got nothing easily. Three minutes from the end, substitute Peter Wall scored our second goal to wrap up the win. This was an excellent sporting and physical encounter which reflected really well on the character of our team and we now look forward to playing the winners of the South or West in the Co Final.
