East U18 2B Hurling League played on Wednesday 3rd May 2017.
Aghada 1-11 Kilta Og 1-23.
Wednesday evening in Rostellan our minor hurlers had their first outing of the season when they took on Kilta Og. Kilta opened the scoring with a point from the start but we followed with a great point from skilful Jamie O Hanlon this was followed by Vince Rohan slotting over the bar. Kilta then done all the scoring for the next 20mins with adding 1-9. Sean Morrissey in goals brought off a great save from point blank range. Mark McCarthy very accurate with his free taking added three points also Craigh Hogan got on the scoreboard with a well taken point. Half time score Aghada 0-6 Kilta Og 1-11. The second half started with Alan Hogan now at corner forward had 1-1 in the space of two minutes..Kilta added a few more points before Mark McCarthy pointed again from frees. Craigh Hogan added his second point of the match. Kilta pulled away towards the end with more points before Vince Rohan got our last score of the game on the 28th minute. This team is a very honest bunch of players with a bit more work on the training field they will improve. There was some great displays especially Luke Foley at corner back who gave a man of the match performance as did Ben Stafford the other corner back. Kyle O Shea put in a good hour at midfield as did Rory Slye at wingback. The Hogan twins , Conor O Keeffe and Jamie O Hanlon can’t wait to see more of these lads in action very promising. Darragh Murphy and Marcus Leahy joint captains for the year honoured their roles well. The team is managed and coached by Donie and Alan Morrissey . selector Martin Looney. Best of luck for rest of year.
