U15 victory books them semi final spot

Our U15’s travelled to Meelick this morning to face Parteen/Meelick in their quarter final, knockout championship for u15 meant they needed to go out with all guns blazing. It was a nervy start for the Blues with the home side going 3 points up within 8 minutes, Peter Power settled us with a point from play  linking up with Conor Freeman for the pass and a minute later Conor Meehan scored our 1st goal, to bring us ahead. Power again from a free and then a Jamie Power goal, his 1st of 2,  gave us a solid lead when he took a knock and was moved to full forward. Peter again broke through for a points and then Parteen/Meelick took their 1st goal.  Just before the half time whistle Jamie Power struck again to give us a lead going into half time of 4-03 to 1-04.


The home side opened the scoring in the second half with a point, With Harvey Cullinan coming on at half time, he showed his boot skills when he rose the ball, Parteen soon surrounded him, with no space he took a fine point with his left boot. Parteen Meelick again came back with 2 points from frees but Oisín McInerney (Hurlers Cross) was not letting them get back into the game, he took a fine goal breaking thorugh defence to rattle the net. Peter Power took a point from play followed up by a free and again Harvey used the left boot to split the posts, this was the point of the game, managed to catch the ball after being tackled to the ground, get up and score, great effort. Seadhna Liddy scores a point from play and then to their credit the home side scored 2 more goals but it was not enough. The hardworking Blues came out on top 5-08 to 3-08

Throught the field they worked hard for each other, Peter Power taking his chances well and Sol Frost solid as ever at centre back, special mention also to Harvey Cullinan for the effort he gave and the points were superb.


In the other Quarter final Tulla overcame Wolfe tones  4-16 to 2-11 in our side of the draw, the other side Banner play Kilmaley.


Well done lads, Eoghan, Ken and Colm, and thanks to all the support who travelled to Meelick,  see ye all and more at the semi final.
