It was another busy week for our Under 12 hurlers with both our 'B' and 'C' teams qualifying for the Mid finals due to be played on Saturday August 18. First up on Monday 30 July our 'C' team played Drom/Inch in Holycross. This was an absolutely brilliant game which held the attention of the attendance to the final whistle. Drom blitzed us early on and we trailed by 10 points after ten minutes. We dragged ourselves back into the game and a David Mawe goal gave us hope but Drom goaled again in the final minute of the half to lead by 7 at the break. The second half was extremely exciting as we fought desperately to reduce arrears with improved performances all over the field, and when the final whistle blew we had secured a 3 point win. There were excellent performances all round but special mention must go to Shane Stapleton, Jordan Fahy,James Armstrong and Conor Stapleton who were immense.

Our 'B' team were in action the following night against Upperchurch/Drombane in Boherlahan. This game was played in terrible conditions but was very exciting nonetheless. We played against the wind in the first half and in a half dominated by strong defending we retired at the break at one point each. An early goal for Upperchurch in the second half gave us an uphill task but we took the game to our opponents. Though we dominated we found it hard to get scores with the Upperchurch goalie excelling. A Joe Dwan point narrowed the gap and eventually we got the break we needed with a Peter Wall goal. We eventually secured a 3 point win with great performances from Cathal Hayes, Ben Murphy Jack Dwyer and Joe Dwan.
Our 'A' team play their semi final against Moycarkey/Borris next Tuesday in Dualla at 8.00 p.m.
