Clonakilty: U14 Hurling vs Ibane Gaels
Match Type: League
Date & Time: August 6th 2020, 7:30 pm
Score: 3:03 vs 3:07
Following on from our excellent win in the opening round, Clonakilty U14 hurlers hosted Ibane Gaels in the second round. In what was a hugely entertaining game, in testing conditions at times, Ibane came through in the end on a score line of 3-7 to 3-3. With Ibane slightly better at adapting to the conditions, they started well forcing our defence into some fouls within scoring range. As the game moved on it became very competitive, with scores even at half time on a score line of 2-2 to 1-5.
With scores at a premium in the second half, Ibane edged the game, scoring all 7 of their points from frees.
Our entire squad put in a massive effort and a small bit more luck in the forward division would have surely brought a better result. A mention to our goalkeeper, James Walsh, making the save of the season halfway through the first half from point blank range, and our full forward Des Kenneally who was a threat all through the game.
Well done to both teams for a hugely entertaining and competitive game of hurling. Thanks to all the support we had on the night.
We now look forward to the final group game in 2 weeks Vs Sam Maguires.
