Four Masters are given a Hurling lesson

U14 Hurling League
Aodh Ruadh 4-9
Four Masters 1-0

Our under 14 league match against Four Masters was played on Monday 9th May. After struggling in the first half we were ahead at half -time by four points on a scoreline of 1-4 to 1-0.

In the second half, after some strong advice at half time from the mentors (Peter O'Keefe, Dennis Doherty and Billy Finn), we finally pulled away to win on a scoreline of 4-9 to 1-0. Our main failure in the first half, despite dominating the match, was our full forward line lifting the sliothar instead of pulling on the ground.

In the second half Liam Cullen (AKA 'John Mullane') and Kieran Kilgannon excelled and gave a great display of hurling scoring three goals and 3 points between them. The Bundoran men namely Ashley Mulhern and Gavin Croghan also settled in the second half and kept the ball in the Four Masters half for virtually the entire second half.

Our next match which will be away against Burt and will be a considerable step up in class. Hopefully Jack Matthews (appendix), David Dolan (bone fracture), Patrick Flaherty (chickenpox) and Gerard Kelly (Flu) will be available!!
