Challenge Match v Ballyvarley

U12 Challenge Game v Ballyvarley

Date: 24th July 2014

Venue: Ballyvarley Banbridge

Brid Og's U12s got back into competitive action in a quickly arranged game against County Down side Ballyvarley.

The game was 11 a side and full rules and played on a shortened pitch. The weather was perfect for hurling although maybe a bit too warm.

It was agreed that the match would be played over 3 x 15 minute thirds and both teams played some excellent hurling and produced some fantastic scores in a high scoring contest. All of our players contributed to this tally as their positions were constantly being rotated and we played some great link up hurling from our backs through mid to our forward line.

I would like to thank John B for organising the match at such short notice. Thanks to Gerard, John D, Marie and Martin for travelling to the venue and for their support on the side-lines. Finally well done to the players who played some excellent hurling in warm conditions and hopefully this game will help with our remaining league fixtures.

South Antrim League

U12 South Antrim League v Lamh dhearg

Venue: Musgrave

Date: 30th June 2014

Our U12 hurlers continued their winning ways with a hard fought victory against Lamh dhearg. It was also a credit to the team that they were able to raise their performance even though several of our most experienced hurlers are already away on holiday or missing.

The game itself was very physical from the start and both teams fought for possession of the sliotar. The format of the game was 12 a side with the smaller goal posts. Our scorers were Brendan (0:2) Connla (0:2) Sean (0:5) and Andrew (1:0) got our major score when he rounded his opponent and struck the sliotar into the back of the lamh dhearg net. Our top scorer Sean had to retire early and get medical treatment when he received a high pull to his back and shoulder. We all hope he is ok and ready to enjoy his holidays.

With several changes to our normal back line Brendan, Diarmaid, Gerard and Jack C all raised their game to protect Jack D in nets. Jack D also produced some excellent saves himself and they can be very proud of performances holding our opponents to a score of 1:04 with their goal coming in injury time. Also well done to Daire, Dylan, Fintan, Luke and Oisin who played their part in our victory but had no luck in front of goal.

Final score

Brid Og 1:9 Lamh dhearg 1:4

Challenge Match v Sean Traceys

U12 Challenge game v Sean Treacys Lurgan

Venue: Musgrave

Date: 26th June 2014

Brid Og's U12 hurlers continued their busy schedule with a challenge game against Lurgan side Sean Treacys , a team we had played before at the blitz in Keady last December.

The game itself was 15 a side and although the first half  was played on the training pitch we did get to play the second half on the full pitch which will be a valuable experience for the team. Both teams played great hurling and there was some excellent scores. A special mention for our usual back 3 Gerard, Paudraig and Shane all got scores when they were given a rare opportunity to play in a forward role.

I would like to thank Kelly and the rest of the Sean Treacy mentors for travelling to Musgrave. Thanks to Gerard and both Johns for helping with the team and John D for refereeing the game. Finally well done to players who again played some excellent hurling and special mention for birthday boy Pearse.
