HURLING-The junior A hurlers were narrowly defeated by St. Lachtain’s in a very exciting game in the the JJ Kavanagh & Sons Northern Junior A Hurling League/Championship in Freshford on Saturday night last. There was very little between the sides all through but it was the home side who held the advantage at the final whistle, winning 3-12 to 2-12. The intermediate hurlers were also second best to St. Patrick’s (Ballyragget) on Wednesday night last in Jenkinstown in their latest game in the Aylward Cup. The home side were forced to line out with a large amount of their major players due to injuries and were no match for the Ballyragget men as a result. In the end, St. Patrick’s were more than worthy winners by 6-19 to 2-11.
The under 14 - hurlers once again met the team that defeated them in the County Féile na nGael final, James Stephens, in Larchfield on Monday last in the Roinn A league. Unfortunately, a similar outcome resulted as the Village men won out in the end. However, Conahy can feel hard done by as they led 1-7 to 0-7 at the half-time, the goal coming from Ben Lawler. James Stephens battled back into the game but it wasn’t until the final quarter that they managed to create any sort of distance between the two sides. At the final whistle, the score line was certainly not a true reflection of the game, as James Stephens won out on a 2-17 to 1-10 score line. TEAM: Conor Blanche, Niall Walsh, Padraig Gunner, Tommy Hennessy, Geoffrey O’Shea, Donal Cass, Laurence Feehan, Edmond Delaney, John Byrne, Darragh Dooley, James Bergin, Ben Lawlor, Eoin Cahill, Bill Murphy, Karl Downey. Subs: Vincent Brophy, Thomas Rice, Darren Cuddihy.
