Some info with respect to the last fortnights proceedings.

St. Patricks 2-11 Newcastle 1-5

Our Junior A hurlers gained their second win of the year in the championship, but beating Newcastle last weekend. The game was played in the main field in Clonmel last Saturday evening. St. Pats went in ten points up at half time, after dominating the first halves proceedings. Newcastle as expected put pressure on in the second half but our lads held out and came away with a comprehensive win. Best for St. Pats were Tony O’Brien, Liam Brett, Jason Hayes.

St. Patricks 1-7 Cahir 4-4

Our Junior A footballers kicked off their championship season over the last fortnight. Unfortunately they came up short in their first outing, against Cahir in Ned Hall park Conmel. The lads started brightly and were on top for the first half going in a few points ahead. Richie Needham was proving to be a good target man at full forward and opportunities were coming off him, even though maybe not enough of those were taken! A few critical mistakes at the back in the second half gifted Cahir two goals and naturally Cahir got momentum from this. Cahir got their noses in front and held out to the end. Not a good display from our lads in general!

St. Patricks 1-8 Moyle Rovers 0-11

Our Junior B hurlers also started their 2010 campaign last week. The dug out a draw on a very wet evening in Fethard against Moyle Rovers. Conditions were very poor for hurling but both teams produced an entertaining hour for the few brave followers. Moyle Rovers were in the ascendancy throughout but the Drangan and Cloneen lads kept at it and were rewarded with a share of the points in the end. Best for St. Pats on the night were Noel Brett, Anthony Barry, Philip Britton.

St. Patricks 1-11 Ballingarry 0-8

St. Pats started their championship with a win over Ballingarry last Saturday night in Fethard. It was a reasonable enough game but maybe lacked the edge of knockout hurling, which is to be expected at this time of year. But apart from that it was important for our lads to get a win under their belts. Continue reading
