Match Report:
We made the trip to Cloughduv Hurling Club for the semi final of the U4 hurling last evening where we came up against an excellent hurling team. They had fine players all over the pitch and got out of the blocks early and built up a lead in the first section.
After this initial phase Clon took over and played to our full potential. We were unfortunate to come up against an outstanding goalkeeper who made 3 wonderful saves and we had 5/6 wides in a time when we really needed the scores.
Half time Cloughduv had a 5-point lead 1-7 to 1-2.

The second half started with a couple of scores again for Cloughduv which put us under pressure.
To the credit of our lads they hurled right to the end and we got some fine scores in the second half.
The scoreboard certainly didn’t reflect the effort and performance of our lads, with Cloughduv tacking on two goals late in injury time.
The commitment and improvement of our lads over the season has been a pleasure to work with.
Thanks to Kevin Ryan, Fintan O’Regan and all the coaches for their efforts over the season.
