Match Report

Ballyboden St. End’s 4    4-3 (15)                 Clontarf Panthers 3-6 (15)           

 

Clontarf went into the final hurling league game knowing a win was needed to secure the title, with BBSE and Faugh’s just 1 point behind, joint 2nd in the table. Clontarf lost the toss and played against the elements in the 1st. half. Despite this we got off to a great start with a goal in the first 3 mins by Matthew Meehan after good work by Donal Og and Cian up front. However BBSE came back strongly and with the aid of the breeze were are to drive long ball into our half back and full back line. Despite being helped by the midfield of Lucian and Darragh the defence was finding itself under increasing pressure and BBSE struck 1-2 by the 10th minute. BBSE were at this stage getting to the ball quicker and finding their men and any cleared ball seems to be flying back in on top of the defence. Despite some brave saves by James in goal BBSE scored a further 2-1 before the break with Senan Reid manage a solitary point for Clontarf.

 

The second have started poorly with a goal for BBSE within the first 2 min. However from the start of the 2nd half our lads started to really dig in for every ball and give the opposition no time. The tide was definitely turning and the full-backs for Robert and Conall and half-backs of Charlie, Karl and Patrick Magner were getting out first to the ball and clearing the lines well. Any ball that went beyond them, James was able to gather and drive length clearance up to our half forwards. Eoin did manage a point shortly after the BBSE goal and which was quickly followed by an excellent point from Matthew after some great work by the midfield and Dylan Conlon. What happened over the next 12 minutes was a revelation in doggedly grinding a team down and Clontarf through the efforts managed to score 2-2 without reply through Donal Og, Eoin and Darragh. This left the score 4-3 to 3-5, just 1 point behind. Arthur and Patrick Ferguson came on in the through the 2nd half to add some fresh leg and enthusiasm. In the 20th min we finally got a decision from the referee after Donal Og was fouled close-in. Eoin went for goal but the sliotar was well saved and clear. However 2 mins later Darragh stepped up and slotted a free from distance to level. This seemed to awaken BBSE and they probably had the best chances in the last 3 minutes, aided by the awarding of some bizarre frees which put us under pressure. They were however unable to convert and chances due to pressure our lads were putting on and the game finished 4-3 to 3-6, with Clontarf securing the draw they richly deserved for the character they showed with their second half display.

This left us 10 points, remaining 1 ahead of BBSE.

As is turned out of neighbours, Vincent’s, beat St Faugh’s which meant we secured the title.

 

Immense credit to all the players that fought like tigers on the day and never gave-up despite being well behind. Also, credit to as those who couldn’t make it on the day but contributed through-out the campaign, including Luke Crowley, Donnacha, Donal Curran, Daire, James Burke, Ciaran, Mark and Dylan Murphy.

 

Congratulations of the league victory.

Mentors and Coaching

Coaching is done on a volunteer basis and the mentors do so as a way to contribute to the community of Clontarf and surrounding areas.

  • All coaches are parents of players and are members of the club.
  • Please be respectful of the coaching staff during our training sessions and match fixtures. 
  • Please arrive on time.  This makes our job a lot easier and in turn a more enjoyable experience for the kids.
  • We openly encourage parents to get involved, support and encourage all of the kids regardless of ability.
  • We would however ask that you and your child listen to and follow instructions given by the mentors.

If you are interested in Coaching? 

We need more help for the 2016 season. So if you are bored standing on the side line or if you feel that you can make a positive contribution please volunteer to get involved. It is a great way to spend time with your child and be part of the community.
We can do with all the help we can get and don’t worry it only looks like hardwork!


House Keeping

Upcoming weekend fixtures are typically send out by Teamer Alerts and posted to this web page on the Tuesday/Wednesday prior to our matches. But please check the website on Friday evenings in case there are any late changes / cancellations.  

It is important that we arrive on time to both home and away fixtures, so the players can warm up and hit the ground running when throw in comes.
