Report Week Ending 25th July 2010

Friday, 23rd July 2010, saw the intermediates make it three wins out of three in this year’s championship when accounting for St Sylvesters by 1-18 to 1-8 in Silverpark.  On a nice evening for hurling Crokes had three points on the scoreboard before five minutes were out.  On the quarter mark it was 0-6 to 0-1.  At twice that the Kilmacud men were 0-9 to 0-4 to the good.  The Malahide outfit got the first score of the second half but this only served to spur the local team to greater efforts.  A steady stream of points put them in front 0-16 to 0-7 before a gem of a goal from Jonathon Hayes dispelled any hopes lingering in the opposition camp with six minutes to go.  For pictures see HERE.  The senior championship game scheduled for the same evening was postponed due to an O’Tooles bereavement.

 

The intermediates promotion prospects were dented on Monday19th July 2010 as a result of a 2-14 to 2-8 AHL3 loss against Whitehall Colmcilles on a warm, close and breezy evening in Cloughran.  The Crokes cause was not helped by registering eight wides in the first twenty minutes and was further damaged when a high ball was not dealt with resulting in a goal for the home team.  This put Whitehall 1-5 to 0-2 ahead.  In the remaining ten minutes of the half the Kilmacud men produced their best hurling and went in 1-7 to 1-5 in arrears - the goal finished to the net after a strong run by Alex Pilkington.  With the aid of the wind Colmcilles gradually put distance between the sides, even if they were similarly culpable with “ar foireals”.  With eight minutes left they led 2-13 to 1-7.  A late penalty goal from Jonathon Hayes and point from a 65 by Declan Browne was not enough to affect the result.

Two other adult teams saw championship action during the week.  On Wednesday the Junior A’s went under by a single point away to Na Fianna.  For report see HERE.  The following evening the Junior E’s won their Group A championship game against Raheny, their third success of the campaign.  For report see HERE  On Sunday the same team travelled to Hazelsbury Road for a championship tie with Erin Go Breagh.  The good run continued, Crokes notching up 2-18 to the opposition’s 4-7.  Starring were Fionan Motherway, Pat Kennedy, Ciaran McGrath, Shane O’Keeffe and Cian O’Brien

 

The under 16’s and under 14B’s were also busy.  On Saturday, 24th July 2010, the under 16’s went to Cork to take part in the Na Piarsaigh tournament.  Springing quickly out of traps, the Crokes boys led by twelve points at half time against Durlas Og in the semi final and won 5-15 to 2-9.   The afternoon final was a very toughly contested game at the end of which the honours went to the hosts.  For report see HERE.  Earlier in the week on Wednesday they took a four point lead in league Division 1 with a 4-13 to 2-6 victory over Whitehall Colmcilles at Silverpark.  For report see HERE

 

No to be outdone the under 14B’s also took the field twice.  On Tuesday they accounted for Bray in a practice match in the seaside town by 4-11 to 4-4.  To the fore were Niall Sweeny, Fiachra O’Connor, Paul Comerford and Con O’Cleirigh.  Friday took them to Castletowngeoghan, Co Westmeath.  The challenge proved a good outing and ended 4-11 to 3-5 in favour of the midlanders. Top players included Andrew Ahern at full back, Conor McNicholas in the corner and Michael Frawley

 

On Sunday, 25th July 2010, the under 13’s hosted Nenagh Eire Og on their way to support Tipperary in the All-Ireland quarter final in Croke Park against Galway and won 3-14 to 1-5.
