U15 Munster Hurling Final

St Augustine's College 2 08
Col na Phairsigh 2 15

Our U15 hurlers were beaten in the Munster hurling final by a sharper Col na Phairsigh team in Fermoy last week. We played against the breeze in the 1st half in extremely hot conditions and all seemed to be going to plan after half an hour. We went behind early but fought our way back into the game through some great scores from Colin Foley and a superb Niall Buckley goal. The Glanmire school were running at our defence and causing problems but some excellent defending from captain Jack O’Floinn, Joe McNamara and Mark McGary kept us in the game. The half time score saw us 4 points down with the breeze at our backs on the restart.
Our difficult task was made worse however as a Glanmire long range free went all the way to the net after just 2 mins of the second half. We went about reducing the Cork schools lead straight away as Rian Hogan and Niall Buckley got some fine scores. All our mistakes were being punished at the other end as the Glanmire forwards revelled in the open spaces left as we pushed for scores. Barry O’Brien came close to a goal but Col na Phairsigh replied with three quick scores to put the result beyond doubt. A Niall Buckley goal from a 21 yd free was our only reply in what was a disappointing 2nd half display.
On reflection it was a fine achievement from this group to reach a Munster final and we would hope the experience will benefit them in future school competitions. Next year the majority will form the U16 ½ team which will provide new challenges for them. Hard luck to the boys on the day and best of luck in the future.
