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.
