AFL1 Kilmacud Crokes 0-16 St Sylvesters 0-14 Never out of it but always a couple of points off the pace on Saturday evening away to Crokes. We were very tight on our panel and didn't have the backup late in the game to make the push for the win. We did score plenty of good points, Jockser, Eoin Fanning, Niall, Alan Foy all contributing but the few goal chances we spurned in the first half were probably the missed chance to win.
Just a short note. In Syls. 111 year history Last Night 23 July 2014 was the first time we had two adult ladies teams playing side by side in Broomfield. The Seniors had a good Cup win V Lucan Sarsfields on pitch 2. On the other side of the hedge Pitch 4 the new Junior Team started their Championship Season (mid season) with a challenge V Fingallians. The Swords team won well on the scoreboard, but Syls put up a fighting spirited performance for their very first game. They start their Championship bid V Thomas Davis away on Monday 11 August 2014.
Our Senior Ladies footballers won their first silverware of the year on Wednesday night by beating a very weak Lucan Sarsfields team by 5-13 to 0-1. Apart from a tendency to give the ball away too easily, this was an accomplished performance with all 19 players on view making solid contributions
AFL6 Sunday 27th V N Fionnbarra Broomfield 10.30 Thanks Declan
AHL3 St Sylvesters 2-15 St Peregrines 2-09 Big win for the hurlers over a previously unbeaten Peregrines in a good game in Broomfield. A feature of the team this year is the strength in depth we seem to have built up. I asked Lenny last night who he thought had played well and he said everyone and, for once, I agreed with him. Anthony Dunne again pulled off an incredible save, nice to hear the Peregrines guy congratulate him to which Anthony replied ' sure I didn't even see it', good reactions, bodes well.
SHC B St Sylvesters 0-18 Round Towers C 0-18 Good lively game on a beautiful sunny evening in Broomfield, a draw was probably a fair result and enough to see Syls qualify for the quarter finals. Anthony Dunne was my man-of-the-match with a very solid game,, confident in collecting the ball, good on distribution and one save in particular that was top drawer. WE started very slow and were 6 to one down after 20 minutes. Kev O'Flynn dropped deep for a while and we clawed our way into the game at 0-08 to 0-06 at the break, Fionn and Martin Ormonde showing well up front.
The Junior Hurling Chanpionship QF against Judes was called off as the Ref didn't show - they played a very lively freindly instead.
AFL3 St Sylvesters 1-09 St Finbars 1-15 A much depleted Inter team, relying on five minors, put up a game effort against the more mature Finbars but couldn't get through for the goals we needed late in the game.
AFL1 We lost by 4 points I think in a high scoring game. Disappointing to lose a very open competitive game against a Maurs team that are pushing hard to make the league play-offs. The lead changed hands a few times and we looked the stronger team in the first half but didn't convert enough in scores. Maurs upped the pace in the second half and a couple of goals gave them a good lead going into the final stages.
Our Junior B's advanced to the Q/F of the Junior D Championship with an impressive 2-22 to 0-03 win away at Naomh Barrog. Andrew Mc Donnell and Brian Danagher are doing a great job this year at the helm, even though they are both still playing themselves. . There is fantastic spirit in the team and they are playing a lovely brand of direct football.

Well the group stages are complete and we are left with just 3 survivors to go into the knockout rounds. Somebody remarked to me the other day that they now understand why Paddy Power makes all the money - sometimes sport isn't as predictable as you might think
After surprise draws for Germany and Portugal we are left withonly 3 survivors in the world cup challenge. Paddy Kelly, John Drumm and Dieckmann Cogill will battle it out for the big prize. Good luck to all!
