SFC St Sylvesters 1-09 St Vincents 3-12 We trailed from start to finish and had no great complaints about the result, losing to a Dermot Connolly inspired Vinnies who, at times, looked every bit the All Ireland Champions that they are. We recovered from a slow start and looked in a good position at 1-07 to 1-05 at half time but a quick Vincents goal after the restart knocked us back. Again we responded with two fine points but a bit of genius by Connolly yielded another Vincents goal and we were chasing from there. We had a good spell mid second half but great work by Gary, Eoin Fanning and Micháel just didn't yield enough scores. One of the ladies team said how proud she was of our team and I can only agree. We came up against a fine team. See the report from Hill16
Sylvester Juvenile Freestyle Hurling competition - to win 2 tickets to All Ireland Hurling Final Replay!
Many of you will have admired the fantastic skills on display in the GAA/GPA run Freestyle Hurling competitions over the past two years which have allowed people to showcase a variety of skills and tricks using their hurl, sliotar and even different body parts.
The U13 football leagues are coming to a head for the season with only 3 matches left for each of our 3 teams. The A footballers continue to lead Division 1 after their 8th win in a row, this time against 4th placed Kilmacud Crokes. The first half was an even enough affair with our 2 goals up the hill in Bridgefield . . .
MHC B Clan na Mara 1-13 Thomas Davis 2-10 For the first half of the game Thomas Davis had the upper hand and controlled nearly every aspect of the game, which saw us coming in at half time with a 7 point defecit. Clan na Mara came out at in the second half playing like a different team, where we started getting to the Sloitar first and really pushing forward and chipping away at that lead.
JFC B St Congratulations to Declan and Shane and their team who won over Civil Service at Parnell on Saturday. Declan will send me a report. The team have been building to this for a few years and the success is very well deserved.
JHC "C" QF : Raheny 0-19 Syls 3-7, Syls Junior Hurlers bowed out of the "C" Championship on Sunday morning losing by 3 points. 19 scores to 10 tells the story. Raheny were very lively and constantly posed a threat moving forward. In a gallant effort to contain them we conceded numerous frees, 10 of which were converted by an expert Raheny freetaker.
Our Junior footballers have qualified for the championship final and will play Civil Service on Saturday in Parnell Park at 4pm. This team has steadily progressed over the last couple of years winning promotion to AFL 6 in 2013 and just losing out in the playoffs last year o move up to AFL5, as well as reaching three cup finals and winning two of them in the last three years.
Sinead Aherne and Niamh McEvoy starred for Dublin once again as they beat Galway in the semi final in Mullingar today. Congratulation to all the girls and best of luck in the final against (Cork I think ?) -
SHC B QF Setanta 0-14 St Sylvesters 2-07 Beaten by pretty much the last puck of the game but, in truth, the scoreline tells the real story of 14 scores to 9. A Martin Ormond goal mid first half and a Martin Casey one just before the break gave us a flattering 2-04 to 0-04 lead. We pointed on the restart but from there on it was pretty much all Setanta with the wind in their backs they picked off a steady, if slow, stream of points. Defensively we put up a great effort and Setanta only threatened our goal once when well handled to Anthony.
As of 28th August . . . .Hurlers looking for Senior League status, need two wins . . . . other than that we are depending on championships for a bit of excitement . . . and I'm sure there will be some, starting this Saturday evening at Poppintree for Senior Hurling B Championship Quarter Finals and two weeks time Junior B Championship Final . . .
