*Minor Hurling*: The U18 hurlers got their season of to a good start in
Hibernian Park Burt on Thursday night with a hard fought win, with a
scoreline of 2:9 to 1:7, whilst fielding a very young squad with only 3 of
the team overage next year. The game was played in ideal conditions, and
swung from end to end. Burt got a couple of early points to run into an
early lead, with the Scarvey boys missing several chances early on, but
they soon settled and went in at Halftime 2 points in front, thanks to a
Dermot Doherty goal. Burt got a goal mid-way through the second half, but a
bullet penalty by Jack O’Loughlin eased nerves and the boys sealed it by
tagging on some late points.The swift accurate puck outs from keeper Tom
Clare were the launch-pad for many Buncrana attacks. Donal Óg Mac Lochlainn
(capt.) was a rock at full back and he was ably assisted by young corner
backs, Paul Nelson and Darren Doherty (roe). There was many good
performances in the middle third of the field, with veteran’s Daniel,
Conor, Stephen, Jamie and Michael all playing their part with their
involvement with the county minor set-up baring fruit, but here too they
were aided by the impressive work of U16 players, Jack and Sam (Roe). In
front of goal Dermot Doherty showed glimpse’s of form, and when introduced
as sub Kevin Crawford made a welcome return to the squad but both will know
that more stick work is needed.
*U16 Hurling*: On Saturday morning the U16 Hurlers headed to Banagher to
play in the U16 9-aside competition. They started brightly against Glen’s
of Antrim side Glenshesk, losing only to a late rally from the strong
Antrim outfit. Tthey then went on to comfortly beat Banagher and Belfast
outfit Pearse’s. A leg injury to Sam Doherty restricted him to netminding
duties, whilst injuries to Jack O’Loughlin and Darren Roe left the side
weakened going into the last games, where they lost to Armagh side
Derrynoose and Antrim side Larne. All in all it was a good day out and our
lads were able to play teams they would not normally get a chance to meet.
