JUNIOR B CHAMPIONSHIP FINAL SUNDAY
Junior B to Championship Final
O’Loughlin Gaels 6-12 to 5-8 St. Martins Muckalee
The Junior B Team will compete in this years Championship County Final in a repeat of last months league final pairing when they face Graigue Ballycallan. The earned the right after accounting for St. Martins in the semi-final last Wednesday evening. The game produces eleven goals in total including a hatrick through corner forward Owen Wall. Michael Henebry got the Gaels first goal on 12 mins putting them in the lead at 1-2 to 0-1. Fearghal Brennan would add the second goal soon after and the lads were looking comfortable and the more alert to breaking ball. IT was a good workmanlike performance that saw Owen Wall net his first of three just before the break leaving the score at half time O’Loughlin Gaels 3-4 to 0-4 St. Martins. Tervine Wallace got in the groove early in the second half and pointed 2 from play within 3 mins while Barry Hogan converted a free within the same period. St. Martins looked to steal back the deficit however and netted a goal in the next play only for Owen Wall to see that goal with one of his own one minute later. Scoring opportunities increased for both teams as the game drew to a close and St. Martins hit 3 goals in quick succession to put a wobble on the winners course to victory. Luke Hogan having spurned a couple of earlier opportunities made no mistake with the last score of the game hitting the net and steadying the ship t the final whistle.
A big support please for the final. Well done to all involved in what has been a great season at this grade.

U13s EXIT CHAMPIONSHIPS
Hard luck to both our u13s who were defeated by James Stephens in their respective championships on Saturday at Dicksboro. The Roinn A match was up first in was a humdinger. O’Loughlin Gaels 2-7 to 1-12 James Stephens
O’Loughlin were well in the game and put serious performances all over the field. The teams were level with just minutes to go but the winners got the rub of the green and finished out 2 points to the good. In truth this game could have gone either way and we have lots to look forward to with this group. Well done to two very good teams that did hurling a great service last Saturday morning and each young lad that took to the field should be applauded.
The second game saw James Stephens hit 3-6 to 1-3 but none the less a more competitive game than the scoreline suggested. The boys may have been a little deflated from their comrades earlier defeat but each and every young fella gave it their all for their club. It’s been a great year for this group of lads and a big thanks must go to Joe Daly and his team of selectors for the work put in. Well done all ..lovely hurling.
