Mungret St. Pauls 2-6 Monaleen 2-10

On a sunny Saturday, 7 September in the LIT Gaelic Grounds the first of the U-14 hurling Semi Finals took place with Mungret St. Pauls and Monaleen. These 2 teams have met many times over the years and they have always had a strong game, this was no exception. Mungret St. Pauls were first to point but Monaleen did not wait long to match the score and take a 3 point lead in the first 10 minutes. A pointed free got Mungret St. Pauls back into the game but silly fouls gave Monaleen their next 3 points. In the sixteenth minute there was a run from the middle of the field dropped into the Monaleens square after a scramble on the goal line the ball was helped over the goal line, bringing Mungret St. Pauls back into the game they followed it up with another 2 points to level the game. Another chance for Mungret St. Pauls resulted in their second goal and first lead in the game. There was some great team work from Mungret St. Pauls but no results came from it. Just before half time Monaleen put pressure on our backs as they went for their own goal which was brilliantly denied only for the rebound to be knocked into the net to level the game as they teams split for half time.

The second half had a slow start as both sides had most of their scores in the first 25 minutes, there was a lot of play on the field with the ball going both ends with no scores. Both sides eventually pointed a ball each before Monaleen struck again and hit the net. The pressure was kept on our backs but nothing resulted as our goalie rescued the ball again. With 3 minutes left on the clock Monaleen edged ahead again with a pointed free, Monaleen were trying to hammer in goals but each had the hurley of our goalie there to stop it. The game ended with both sides pointing one last ball each, Monaleen took the place in the Final. This was a testing game for our players as they were attacked on every move they made, they will learn from this and bring it with them to next year when they are U-15.

Mungret St. Pauls 3-17 Patrickswell 0-10
In Mungret on Monday 12 August 2019 our U-16 hurlers played a great game, while it looked like the game was a very one sided affair, Patrickswell gave a great game and made our players work for every score.
Patrickswell opened the game with a pointed free, Mungret St. Pauls very quickly moved onto the scoreboard and did not stop until they had 5 points up. Both sides pointed again before there was a rush of red making a run from the half way line, eyes directed infront and only one thing on his mind, while the coaches were shouting to pass the ball on, the shot was struck and straight to the back of the Patrickswell net before the goalie realised what had happened. Both sides welcomed 2 pointed placed balls each and one form play but Mungret St. Pauls closed out the half with an additional 2 points and a goal from a short range free, going in 2-11 to 0-5.
The second half matched the first 30 minutes, Patrickswell pointing first and Mungret St. Pauls following it up with 3 points before Patrickswell stopped them to score their own point from a free. While the ball was near our goals Patrickswell tried to get the ball over the line but the defense were not letting anything past them so had to accept another point. Mungret St. Pauls took 5 chances on scoring only making 2 of them count. Patrickwells pointed one out of 2 attempts. Mungret St. Pauls saw their chance again and rattled the net for the third time, another 2 pointed placed balled ended the game with Mungret St. Pauls deserving winners.
This Mungret St. Pauls team remain unbeaten in the table with 2 more games to go, the next is in 2 weeks time against Knockainey in Knockainey.

Mungret St. Pauls were playing into the strong wind in the first half and started very strong with a striking goal, Oola replied with a point. Mungret St. Pauls split the uprights 3 more times before Oola attacked our backs and after a scramble at the goal mouth the ball was seen going into the back of the net. Mungret St. Pauls went straight up the the other end but failed to convert a score, they did keep the ball in that end of the pitch for a good while and eventually from a free the ball was kicked to a Mungret St. Pauls player standing in the right place and the ball was sent to the back of the net. This is where the first half ended, Mungret St. Pauls 2-3 Oola 1-1.

The second half Mungret St. Pauls pulled out all the stops and from the restart were putting the Oola backs under pressure scoring a point and then with another kick of the ball secured their third goal, this was followed up with another 2 points. Oola did not let the score beat them, they pointed from a free, Mungret St. Pauls pointed another 3 points and finished it off with their last goal. Oola went straight back up to the Mungret St. Pauls goals and struck 2 balls into the back of our net with in minutes, this refreshed the Oola team but also brought Mungret St. Pauls back to finish off their score with another 4 points. In the last minutes of the game there was a penalty awarded to Mungret St. Pauls just as Oola had replaced their goalie, all eyes were on the goals, the ball was struck toward the left corner but the quick movement of the goalie sent the ball out to be cleared, there was a great cheer from the Oola subs bench and from all the supporters at the match for this fantastic way to end the game for Mungret St. Pauls who did not need the goal and to Oola who could talk about their players great action in goals.
