Magh Cuilinn U12 and U13 complete group stages

Post date: Jul 24, 2015 4:23:50 PM

Both our U12 and our U13 Moycullen hurlers completed their Group stage campaigns with victories in the past week. Both teams are competing in the A division which is the highest level of underage hurling in Galway. The U12s have finished with 3 wins, 3 defeats and a draw and currently lie in third place in their group. Their recent victory was an away win over Sarsfields in Bullaun.

Our U13s had a difficult start, losing their first five games although at this level their tends not to be much of a gap in class in many of the games, with only a couple of scores in the difference in most of those games. To their credit, they kept it going and in game six beat table toppers and previously unbeaten Kilconieron by 0-06 to 1-02. They completed their campaign with a 2-04 to 1-03 at Castlegar, the only other team to take a point off Kilconieron. They can therefore look forward with some confidence to a Shield semi-final in August.

The progress at underage is a reward for all the hard work put in over several years, both these teams in A, an U14 A1 Shield win, U16s in the B final and even our Minors still in with a shout of a B quarter final.
