Under 21s advance

After a long wait our U21 hurlers finally saw championship action on Sat. last Oct. 26th. The venue was Anner Park Cloneen and the opposition were neighbours Ballingarry. In the lead up to the game there was confusion as to both opposition and venue with Fethard being the venue and Ballybacon being the opposition. None of the confusion was of the local club’s making. However the confusion put pressure on the local clubs players and their mentors. C J K were drawn in a 3 team group who would play each other and the top two would advance to the semifinals. Ballybacon played and beat Ballingarry so Sat.

last was a make or break game for Ballingarry. A second loss would make it impossible for them to advance. Mullinahone made a good start on Sat. building up a nine point lead by halftime thanks to goals from the full forward line. The team may have eased off in the second half, but at the finish they were still eight points clear 4-11 to 1-12, so whatever about the result of the game against Ballybacon which still has to be played Mullinahone are now in the semi-final. However, that game against Ballybacon will still be wanted by both the players and their managers Johnny Kennedy to sharpen them up for future battles. Johnny and his mentors have put a lot of time into preparing this side. In the other section, Killenaule gave a walk over to Carrick Swan in a game which was to be played in Mullinahone on Sat. last.
