U13B Hurling League 26/07/2019 – GBC V Piltown

GBC U13’s travelled to Piltown to play our final league game on 26th July. Again GBC got off to a poor start conceding 1-3 before we eventually got on the scoreboard after 15 minutes. Our backs began to get on top which allowed more possession for the forwards, both sides traded points for the remaining half . HT Score:  Piltown 1-7, GBC 0-5. The 2nd half was evenly balanced when Piltown’s No.14 won possession on the edge of the square and sent an unstoppable shot to the net with 7 minutes remaining. At the other end Piltown’s keeper pulled off two point blank saves to deny us a goal. Overall Piltown were a stronger/balanced team and ran out deserving winners. FT Score: Piltown 2-13, GBC 0-11. 

TEAM: Shane Hogan, Oran Hoyne, Elliott Teehan, Cormac Neary, Robbie Tector, Aidan Comerford, Cillian Hoyne, Paidi Egan (0-2), Tony Butler (0-1) Sean McGrath (0-1), Eoghan Cahill, Shane Cody, Ben McEvoy, Ben Young (0-6), Aidan Ging, Michael Tynan (0-1), Martin Brennan, James O’Halloran, Keelan Lynch, Sean O’Halloran, Andrew Tector. 

Overall the mentors were very happy with the League performances. We got to use all the players in various games as we never had a full panel to pick from due to summer holidays. We play Galmoy/Windgap in the Roinn B Championship in late August.
