Juvenile hurlers bow out

The Shelmalier juvenile hurlers took on Mogue O’Rahilly’s in the county semifinal in Killurin last Saturday.

After a tense and exciting match the south Wexford side overcame the Shelmaliers boys by a small margin. The game was end to end throughout with a great exhibition of hurling by all the Shels men. We thank the boys and their management team for the great effort they put in throughout the year.

U16 Hurling – Report

Shels U16 put in a solid performance on Sat morning in St. Patrick’s Park to overcome the Faythe Harriers & advance to the final of the premier hurling championship 2.17 – 2.07.

Played in ideal conditions the Harriers were quick off the mark with the opening point but this was quickly cancelled out by Conor Hearne and when Ross Banville gave the Shels the lead after 2 minutes the harriers never managed to catch them. A string of points followed and approaching half time the lead stood at 10 points to 3. However a goal on the stroke of half time cut the lead to 4 points at half time. However, in the opening minutes of the second half, a long delivery from a free by Conor Hearne went all the way to the net and this set the tone for the second half. The Harriers did manage a second goal but  the Shels ran out easy winners in the end. Adam Howlin was sound in goal while James Doyle, Craig Parker and Aaron O’Neill played well in defence. Sean Kane Carroll put in a good hour at mid-field while all of the forwards had a good day. Substitutes Jamie Larkin Furlong, Adam Hearne and Niall Hearne also made an impact and its all systems go now for the final.
