Mungret St. Pauls 5-18 Adare 1-12
Just a short trip out the motorway for our U-16 hurlers to play Adare in what was another great exhibition of play from this team on Monday 6 August.
Mungret St. Pauls were on top form when they started this game going 4 points up before Adare broke through and scored their first point on the 11th minute of the game. Another point for Mungret St. Pauls lead up to the mid fields showing great control on the ball a quick hand off to score the first goal. This boosted Mungret St. Pauls on more and they secured another 2 points before Adare replied with a placed ball score and their only goal of the game. Mungret St. Pauls quickly equaled the goal themselves with another 3 points to Adares 4 more points before the break.
The second half was Mungret St. Pauls game, they never gave up throughout and continued to score in both goals and points while they held back Adare with them only breaching the defense to score 6 more points. There was a lot of pressure put on our backs in the dying minutes of the game as Adare tried to add to their goal score but each attempt was denied by all the backs working together as a team. The subs that were put on were all equally as good as the players they replaced.
