Our Under 12's had mixed fortunes in their Mid hurling semi finals played in Pairc na nOg on Tuesday. Our 'B' team were defeated by Thurles Gaels. We trailed at half time but a Cathal Hayes goal gave us hope. However Gaels finished strongly and ran out deserving winners. There were good performances from Cathal Hayes, Luke Beresford, Conor Fogarty and Stephen Donavan.
Our 'A' team were involved in a thriller against Drom/Inch. We trailed 1.05 to 0.5 at half time. Two goals early in the second half appeared to put us on the road to victory but Drom finished strongly to leave the final score 2.07 each. The teams were still level at half time in extra time but points from James Armstrong and Jack Lanigan eventually saw us home by 2.10 to 2.08. There were good performances from Dara Stakelum, Paddy Creedon, Conor Stapleton and Eoin Purcell. We are now through to the Mid Final where we will play Moycarkey/Borris on Saturday week 10th August.
