The U8’s travelled to Clonduff for their second blitz of the season where they were up against strong teams from Kilclief, Carryduff, Clonduff and Ballycran. First up were Kilclief and were unlucky not to secure a win but in their next match they faced Carryduff putting in a fantastic team performance with Finn Digney in goals making several great saves and with the help of Eoin Campbell and Ciaran McMahon in defence the midfield duo of Jamie Lock and Jason Duffy ensured that with great teamwork they supplied the forwards Christy Elmore and Tiarnan O’Reilly who secured the first goal. Carryduff quickly got back into the game with a goal of their own, but undeterred by this the blues struck for a second goal with Jamie Lock to the fore ensuring a win for the young gaels. Some great performances in the next two matches against Clonduff & Ballycran just fell short of another win, but with all the boys eager to impress and thoroughly enjoying their hurling the management were pleased with the effort and display put on by the young hurlers. Well done to Averill and Colette.
Team: Eoin Campbell, Finn Digney, Jason Duffy, Christy Elmore, Jamie Lock, Ciaran McMahon, James Nelson and Tiarnan O’Reilly
