We held Naomh Olaf to a two point lead playing into a strong wind in the first half but our younger team could not sustain the effort in the second half and Olaf's ran out convincing winners. We don't have a full U16 team and a lot of younger girls made up the numbers so we were delighted to compete n the final and obviously disappointed not to win. Shane will send a report when he gets a chance.
Under 16 Shield Final St Sylvesters 2 - 9 Fingallians 1 - 6 A marvelous win over a Fins outfit we had never previously beaten gave the U16s a nice close to their juvenile status. Congratulations to Anthony, John, Chris and Martín for nearly 10 years of dedication to these lads. Tom Hughes who has sponsored the team presented the trophy to Eoin Cooney and it was a credit to the Fingallians team that they stayed for the presentation, well done, you are a fine team. Anthony's report and Bernard sent some pictures.
"Congratulations to our under 11 hurlers who had a magnificent win in the B final of the Seamus Carton Hurling Tournament at St. Maurs last Saturday. It was a fantastic display by the lads who had 2 points to spare over Kiltale of Co. Meath in the final. Well done to all involved."
AFL3 Ballyboden St Endas 0-02 St Sylvesters 3-12 Important win at Sancta Maria keeps us out of the relegation playoffs and secured our place in AFL3 for next year. We have a lot of young talent coming through and it's great to have so many playing at a high level. Well done to all.
Ladies D2 St Sylvesters 6-12 St Maurs 2-06 Congratulations to our girls winning League 2 and qualifying for Senior 1 next year, a magnificent achievement in 4 short years after re-forming the team. Special mention to Sinead Aherne, Aimee Hazely, Sinead Tracy, Niamh McEvoy and Ann Clarke who have been involved all along and have given us a platform to bring in the many fine players coming through young teams. Congratulations also to Angela Aherne, Brian Sullivan, Dave McEvoy, Mick, Suzanne, Eddie, Anne, Pat, Declan and all the mentors and committee members who have worked so tirelessly over the years to bring about this achievement. Thanks to Joe Duffy Motors for your support, much appreciated. Thanks to Mick Stuart for the report. Syls Abú.
The U14 boys football team completed their season of divisional matches with a magnificent win over Lucan last Saturday to finish top of Division 2. They now head into the playoffs having scored a phenomenal 375 points equivelent in 14 games.
U15 Championship Semi-Final Naomh Mearnog 1-7 St. Sylvesters 1-14 A seven point win in the end seemed a little flattering as we had trailed for much of the game but we took over completely in the last quarter and a brilliant solo goal by Cian McLoughlin when we led by two closed out the game. There was a huge crowd cheering on Sylvesters on a beautiful morning at Naomh Marnóg. See the report from Eamonn Dullaghan.
