Brave display from U14 Hurlers
14th March 2018
Our U14 hurlers put on a brave display against a talented Mercy Secondary School, Kilbeggan team yesterday. Their efforts however were just not enough as Kilbeggan edged a two point victory with a goal late in the game helping their cause.
The home side opened the game well putting their first marks on the scoreboard with an early goal and a point. These scores came from the hurl of the impressive wing-forward Dylan O'Leary. Kilbeggan kept in touch with Castlepollard throughout the first half but the home team looked comfortable leading by a goal and two points at half time.
The second half saw the tide of the game turn ever so slightly as Kilbeggan became to make their mark in the game felt. Despite Darragh McCormack's accuracy from free taking and Alex McCormack's work from play, Kilbeggan had enough in the tank to finish strong and take the points.
