Civil Service Hurling Club Newsletter 21 May 2013

There were many positives from both our two games in Round 3 of the Junior championship on Sunday but unfortunately we lost both games. In our “must win” JHC B clash at Erin’s Isle, the home side did not capitalise on the early dominance and a Civil Service fight back left us just 2 points down by half time. The second half brought the teams even closer with nothing between us in the final stages. We pursued goal scoring opportunities in pursuit of victory but at the final whistle we were a point behind.

In the afternoon, in our JHC E fixture in Islandbridge, we conceded four first half goals to reach half time 9 points behind Naomh Barróg but there was nobody giving up. In the second half we fought back and maybe with a bit of luck in a couple of ping-pong goalmouth incidents and maybe some goal-line technology, the final result might have been different. We were eventually beaten by 5-11 to 2-13, a creditable score.

Its all to do in Round 4. But there is no rest this week. First team is back in AHL6 action on Tuesday 21st May v Kilmacud Crokes in Islandbridge and the second team travels to Balbriggan to play O’Dwyers in AHL8 on Thursday 23rd. Both games throw in at 7.30pm. Then on Sunday 26th, we travel to play in AHL6 against Skerries Harps away at 11am and play Commercials in AHL8 in Islandbridge at 3pm. The manager asks all players to respond promptly to requests on Teamer.

No training on Wednesday this week. Committee meets after the game on Tuesday 21st in our clubhouse after the Kilmacud game.
