Roinn A Hurling League

A much improved second half performance saw Dicksboro – lining out in their new strip sponsored by Aut Even Hospital – capture the Duggan Steel Under-16 Roinn ‘A’ Hurling League title with a 2-11 to 1-10 victory over James Stephens at Nowlan Park on Monday afternoon, August 1st.
The ’Boro got off to a good start with a point from play by Kevin Kenny followed by two pointed frees by Paddy Cahill. James Stephens then got into the game and added seven points – three from play and four from frees – with just a point reply from play for Dicksboro by Kevin Kenny which left the Village 0-7 to 0-4 ahead.
Kevin Kenny got in for a good goal for Dicksboro to level up the scores but just before half-time James Stephens
added a point from play to leave the half-time scores: James Stephens 0-8, Dicksboro 1-4.

At the start of the second half the Village added two points from frees which seemed to spur the ’Boro into action and they controlled the scoring from there on with Paddy Cahill in sparkling form, adding six points from placed balls interspersed with a converted ’65 by Stephen Farrell.

Then the best move of the match saw the ’Boro surge through the centre, with Robbie Fitzpatrick laying on an inch-perfect pass for the in-rushing Paddy Cahill who blasted to the net, to put the ’Boro in control.

Scoring was completed with a point from play for Dicksboro by Kevin Kenny and James Stephens adding a goal just before the final whistle, to leave the ’Boro deserving winners on a scoreline of 2-11 to 1-10.

Dicksboro 4-11, Glenmore 0-4

Our Under 16 League winners had little time to celebrate their League title secured on August 1st, as they were back in action in the Championship quarter-final in Ballyhale against Glenmore on Saturday, August 7th. With the assistance of a strong wind in the first half Dicksboro got off to a slow start, but soon took control of the game. By midway through the half, the ’Boro we were leading by 0-4 to 0-1. After a thunderous downpour the game became a no contest with Dicksboro adding two quick goals, leaving them leading 2-5 to 0-3 at half time.
The second half continued as the first one ended. Again two early goals left Glenmore chasing futilely to the end, by which time the ’Boro had added 6 further points to bring their winning margin to 4-11 to 0-4.
Next up will be the semi-final against James Stephens who beat Emeralds by 4 points in their quarter final.
The most likely date for this game is Wednesday, August 18th.

Team (and scorers): Darragh Holohan, Marc Cudmore, Eoin Gough, Evan Cody, Stephen Farrell (1-3), Rory Glynn, Enda O'Donoghue, Eoin Fennelly (Capt.) (1-0), Aidan Walsh, Kevin Kenny (0-1), Robbie Fitzpatrick (1-4), Ronan Moriarty, Shane O'Brien (1-1), Ciaran Brennan, Patrick Cahill (0-2).
