With the adult league having played their weekly games last Friday, all was relatively quiet Sunday at Eugene Burns Park. That is until a gaggle of youth hurlers stormed the field for round 3 of our spring hurling league. While the heat didn't faze most of the kids, we did opt to consolidate the morning games into one. This gave us an 8v8 match-up and allowed us use of the entire field.
Players marked up based on age, with the U10 players covering the full forward/full back positions and the U16s covering the half and mid positions. In an attempt to allow the U10 some attempts at goals and to improve shots over the bar the older kids were required to stay in their half and midfield zone.
Waterford dominated the first half with 3 goals and 1 point to Cork's 1 goal. While the U10s primarily used a ground game, their lifts and aerial strikes are improving at an impressive rate. All used great teamwork to advance the ball toward the goal.
The second half brought the Rebels within range to overtake the Déise. Much of the half was played in the mid field with exciting back and forth rallies that kept all players on their toes. Cork was able to pull out two goals and at the same time keep Waterford to one point.
1H: Port Láirge 3-1 (10) / Corcaigh 1-0 (3)
2H: Port Láirge 0-1 (1) / Corcaigh 2-0 (6)
Final: Port Láirge 3-2 (11) / Corcaigh 3-0 (9)
Special thanks to Sean McGill, Tim McLaughlin and Josh Valentine for covering goals.
