U8s do well in Ardrahan go-games

It was a lovely evening last Friday as Kinvara underage U8's and U10's travelled to neighbours Ardrahan for their Go-Games matches.

In the U8s, Kinvara fielded two sides - one with 6 players, while the other had 7.
All players did very well, and although Ardrahan also played well, credit to must to all the boys for really getting stuck in.
In Team Purple, there was some very fine performances. Sean Malone, while in goals, pulled off some amazing saves, and kept the Ardrahan forwards at bay. Star man in the backs was Dylan Corcoran, who blocked and pulled on everything that came his way. In midfield, both Lorcan Heavey and Cormac Ivers worked tirelessly, and hit some lovely strokes. Up front, Rory Piggott looked very dangerous. He went for every ball, and was unlucky not to have scored several goals. Alongside him, Thomas Murphy-Seery had also a good game, and he hit many a good shot.

In the other pitch, Team Yellow also played very well. They had many fine performances and showed many of the skills developed at training. Jack Kilkelly had a solid game and let very little past him. Ethan Sexton had also a busy match, and he did very well in keeping the ball moving with many fine dribbling and striking. Alongside him, Christian Keane had one of his best performances and did many good tackling and striking. The busy Liam Martyn had another one of his solid performances and was busy blocking and striking. Oisin Fahey is another player who is vastly improving and he had a very good match showing many of the skills. Beside him, Cathal Mongon was rock solid and was an example with his fine ball-striking. Completing the line-up was the knacky Oisin Cahill who caused all sorts of problems for Ardrahan, and got in plenty of blocks and hits. 

More Go-Games to come soon, and no doubt these lads will be practising at home every evening to get ready for them. 

Finally, thanks to Ardrahan for hosting the matches. They provided a tough opposition, and no doubt this will be the first of many fine tussles between these groups of hurlers in the years to come!
