Where in the world is Sinead Aherne . . .
The Dublin full forward line last Sunday in DCU was made up of Syl's Nicole Owens and Niamh McEvoy but pity our ever present Sinead Aherne was not there to complete the line . . . hope it's sunny wherever you are . . .
AFL1 Thomas Davis 0-12 St Sylvesters 1-09 A disappointing second half after a heroic first half performance saw us lucky enough to get a draw over a solid Davis team. We faced a wicked wind and rain in the first half and played some very controlled football. Davis went 6 to 2 up when Barry Ryan tenaciously won a penalty which Gavin finished nicely. Davis finished the half with a point and Syls defending bravely. Of course, the rain passed and the wind dropped at the break but we opened with a lovely Shane O'Connor point and looked poised to take control.
U12H St Pats P 0-02 St Sylvesters 3-02 Good start lads
The U14A footballers had a deserved 6 point away win over the huge monolithic club that is Kilmacud Crokes this Saturday. Playing with a strong wind in the first half we turned with only a 2 point lead, we played terribly in the first 20 minutes, we forgot the basics and couldn't pick up or kick a ball but we settled and recovered from being 5 points down and goals from Sean Guiden and Danny Taaffe showed us that we could find a way through.
St Vincent De Paul Cup Group 1 Lucan Sarsfields 0-6 St Sylvesters 1-08 Good win, some very slick play by our lads, an impressive senior debut for Andrew Scrappy Cunningham, Beano in a new forward role along with brother David, Glenn Hazely back from his travels. A game we really should have put away but instead it ended in a bad humoured affair. Next week at Thos Davis for the league opener.
Corn Ui Laochra Nmh Marnóg 1-14 St Sylvesters 2-11 Colm Byrne hit the post with the last puck but it fell wide and we have to go again against neighbours Marnóg. It was a good all round performance from our lads, many making senior débuts. Stephen Keogh was in great form at corner forward putting in two great tackles to setup both goals, Kevin Clarke had a very lively game contributing 5 points from play, Conor Ryan reminded us what a fine hurler he is, Des Lehane also looking comfortable at this level.
I stopped by Bridgefield on Saturday to see the U10s against Scoil Ui Conail and the U12s against Crokes. The 12s was a grading game and

Many thanks to Robbie for organizing to bring the senior teams down to the Club last Saturday. Also a special thank you to Rod Fitzpatrick for all his work encouraging so many from the nursery section to come down to the Club as well ( despite his dodgy directions). Great to have so many newcomers to our Club - all are welcome. Thanks to everyone for their continued support. Hope to see you all again next Saturday.
