UNDER 21 HURLERS: The U-21 hurlers were eliminated from the Premier Hurling Championship after defeat to Na Piarsaigh in the quarter-final. Patrickswell started brightly and Calvin Carroll scored the opening point after one minute. There was little to separate the teams during the first ten minutes and Jason Gillane’s free increased the Patrickswell advantage to two points. Na Piarsaigh’s first point was swiftly followed by a damaging  goal and Patrickswell were suddenly behind by 1-1 to 0-2. Before the water break, Jason Gillane and John Kirby added points to restore parity at 0-4 to 1-1. Immediately after the restart, Jason Gillane notched a pair of points to establish at 0-6 to 1-1 margin. Na Piarsaigh closed the deficit with a point and then changed the course of the match with two crushing goals in sixty seconds. The Caherdavin men were now in control at 3-2 to 0-6 after 25 minutes. Unfortunately for Patrickswell, the next three points were for Na Piarsaigh and it took Patrick Kirby’s point on the stroke of half-time to stop the onslaught. The interval score was arrears of 3-5 to 0-7.

Jason Gillane popped up with the first point of the second half, but Na Piarsaigh muted Patrickswell and helped themselves to four consecutive points and a fourth goal to reach the last water break with an unassailable thirteen-point lead of 4-9 to 0-8. John Kirby’s point and Cian Fitzgerald’s goal gave Patrickswell a brief lifeline when the scoreline was improved to 4-9 to 1-9. Over the next five minutes, the teams exchanged a goal and a point apiece (Jason Gillane 1-1). The clock was in its 55th minute and the Light Blues were 5-10 to 2-10 ahead. Na Piarsaigh closed out the match with two points to put the gloss on a 5-12 to 2-10 victory. Hard luck to the players and management.

UNDER 21 HURLERS: Patrickswell reached the quarter-final of the U-21 Premier Hurling Championship after a hard-fought victory over Croagh-Kilfinny-Rathkeale in Kilbreedy. Our opponents settled into the match quickly and accumulated three unanswered points in the opening ten minutes. Patrickswell eventually tamed the conditions and equalised with a trio of points from Jason Gillane before the first water break. Shortly after the restart, there was a flurry of activity. Jason Gillane and John Kirby scored a minute apart to establish a 0-5 to 0-3 lead. Within sixty seconds, Croagh-Kilfinny-Rathkeale had drawn level. As the pendulum swung from end to end, Jason Gillane helped himself to a point and a goal across three minutes. By the 27th minute, the ‘Well were 1-6 to 0-5 ahead. The opposition responded with two points; however Josh Considine secured the last point of the first half to cement a 1-7 to 0-7 interval lead.

Croagh-Kilfinny-Rathkeale fired over the first point of the second half, but Josh Considine was on hand to cancel out. The scoring rate began to wane and the ‘Well reached the 40th minute at 1-8 to 0-8 ahead. Jason Gillane and Josh Considine added fresh points to create a five-point lead, but Croagh-Kilfinny-Rathkeale remained a threat. The match was ultimately decided when Josh Considine shocked the opposition with two goals in a devastating minute. John Kirby chipped in with another point to stretch the margin. To the neutral, the scoreboard may have seemed comfortable and lop-sided at 3-11 to 0-8 when the water break was called. Croagh-Kilfinny-Rathkeale scored the next point after the water break before the teams went scoreless for fifteen minutes. As the match reached injury time, Jason Gillane tacked on another point before Croagh-Kilfinny-Rathkeale claimed a consolation goal. The final result was a 3-12 to 1-9 triumph. The quarter-final with Na Piarsaigh is on Tuesday November 23 at 7.30pm in Rhebogue. As usual, tickets must be purchased in advance from Universe.com at this link – Match Tickets…

UNDER 21 HURLERS: Patrickswell experienced a difficult week in the Premier Hurling Championship with two defeats in 48 hours against Mungret and Garryspillane. In the match against Mungret, Jason Gillane gave the ‘Well a perfect start with three points in the opening two minutes. Mungret’s first point was immediately countered by Jason Gillane and Patrickswell were 0-4 to 0-1 ahead within five minutes. Mungret began to edge into the match and produced two quick-fire points to reduce the deficit to a single point. When Patrick Kirby increased the advantage, our opponents responded with another brace of points to equalise at 0-5 apiece. Jason Gillane and Calvin Carroll were called upon to build a 0-7 to 0-5 advantage at the water break. After the game recommenced, Mungret hit Patrickswell with four unanswered points in six minutes. While in arrears of 0-9 to 0-7, Jason Gillane scored in the 25th minute and trimmed the deficit to the minimum. Mungret rallied with another two points in sixty seconds, but Jason Gillane’s free point steadied the nerves. The final point of the first half was scored by Mungret and Patrickswell reached the interval at 0-12 to 0-9 behind.

In the initial five minutes of the second half, Jason Gillane had another free point cancelled out straight away. Moments later, Patrick Kirby’s sideline cut was met at the back post by the on-rushing Cian Gorman. He beat the goalkeeper from close range and equalised at 1-10 to 0-13. Mungret were unfazed and retaliated with two points, before Patrick Kirby’s point before the water break reduced the deficit to 0-15 to 1-11. There was a slowdown in scoring after the restart, but Patrickswell seemed on course for victory with a flurry of three points in four minutes from Jason Gillane (0-2) and John Kirby. The clock had six minutes left and the ‘Well were 1-14 to 0-15 ahead. Unfortunately, Mungret finished strongly with a salvo of three points and emerged as narrow 0-18 to 1-14 winners.

Two days later, Patrickswell met Garryspillane in Caherdavin. In a remarkable first half, Patrickswell dominated the Bouncers and were rewarded with seven points before the water break. The scorers were Patrick Kirby, Josh Considine (0-2), Jason Gillane (0-3) and Calvin Carroll. After the water break, Jason Gillane’s double free points and Josh Considine’s point from play built an incredible 0-10 to 0-0 lead. While Garryspillane looked demoralised, they scraped one goal and a point just before half-time to establish a foothold in the match. The interval score was 0-10 to 1-1 to Patrickswell.

Jason Gillane’s free point within moments of the whistle created a seven-point lead, but two points from Garryspillane trimmed the lead to five points by the 35th minute. Patrick Kirby’s point turned out to be Patrickswell’s final score of the match. Despite being 0-12 to 1-3 ahead, Garryspillane pounded the ‘Well with six unanswered points in a damaging ten minutes. As the teams huddled for the water break, the scoreline was level at 0-12 to 1-9. Regrettably, the wind was in Garyspillane’s sails and they scored three points in six minutes to move ahead by 1-12 to 0-12. Patrickswell were committed to an equalising goal, but they were sunk by a second Bouncer goal to lose out by 2-12 to 0-12. On Tuesday November 16, Patrickswell must beat Croagh Kilfinny Rathkeale at 8pm in Staker Wallace. As usual, tickets must be purchased in advance from Universe.com at this link – Match Tickets…

UNDER 21 HURLERS: The U-21 hurlers produced an impressive performance to beat Ahane in their first match of the Premier Championship. The opening five minutes were scoreless as both teams neutralised each other. When Patrickswell settled into their stride, they were rewarded with five unanswered points in six minutes from Jason Gillane (0-3), Calvin Carroll and John Kirby. Ahane’s first point was immediately cancelled out by Josh Carey within a minute; however they added another two points before the water break. At that stage, the scoreline was 0-6 to 0-3 in Patrickswell’s favour. After the restart, Jason Gillane’s point created a four-point lead but Ahane claimed another point to stay in contention. In the 27th minute, Calvin Carroll notched a fine individual goal to put Patrickswell in the ascendency. Two minutes later, Josh Considine contributed another point before Ahane closed the first half with a point. The half-time score was 1-8 to 0-5 to the ‘Well.

The second half began with another Jason Gillane free, but Ahane rallied with a pair of frees in reply. Our opponents had moved within five points, although Jason Gillane closed the door with another pair of frees. Three minutes later, Josh Carey hit the back of the net to establish a ten-point lead of 2-11 to 0-7. Ahane stayed in contention with two quick points just before the water break to reduce the arrears to 2-11 to 0-9. The final quarter of the match was ruthless from Patrickswell. Jason Gillane scored the third goal in the 50th minute and John Kirby raised the green flag once again in the 53rd minute. Jason Gillane’s further point cemented a fifteen-point lead of 4-12 to 0-9. Ahane’s tenth point was supressed by a trio of points in two minutes from Calvin Carroll and Jason Gillane (0-2). At the end of normal time, the ‘Well were 4-15 to 0-10 ahead. In stoppage time, Ahane accrued two points but Gavin Carey bagged a fifth goal in a 5-15 to 0-12 triumph.

SENIOR HURLERS: There was disappointment at the Gaelic Grounds as Patrickswell lost the County Championship Final against a strong Kilmallock team. Diarmaid Byrnes struck the first point of the match when his free sailed over the crossbar after just thirty seconds. When Kilmallock equalised quickly, Aaron Gillane was on hand to restore the Patrickswell lead. Two quick-fire scores from Graeme Mulcahy established a Kilmallock lead of 0-3 to 0-2 with five minutes on the clock. Patrickswell experienced a short period of dominance when three unanswered frees from Jason Gillane (0-2) and Aaron Gillane generated a Patrickswell advantage of 0-5 to 0-3 by the tenth minute. Kilmallock were unfazed and notched three consecutive points over the course of the next five minutes. Aaron Gillane’s free steadied Patrickswell and the teams reached the first half water break level at 0-6 apiece.

When play resumed, Diarmaid Byrnes had two points sandwiched between a pair of Kilmallock points. The scoreboard clock reached the 25th minute and the teams were inseparable at 0-8 each. The Balbec were stronger in the closing minutes of the first half as Mike Houlihan helped himself to three points in six minutes, while Patrick Kirby responded for Patrickswell. The referee’s whistle ended a stirring first half and Patrickswell trailed by 0-11 to 0-9.

There was a spring in the Patrickswell step at the start of the second half. Jason Gillane and Jack Kelleher scored points to equalise at 0-11 all. Although Kilmallock crept ahead with another point, Patrickswell surged ahead with four straight points in four minutes from Diarmaid Byrnes, Patrick Kirby, Thomas O’Brien and Aaron Gillane. Kilmallock responded to the ‘Well challenge with a trio of points of their own. Aaron Gillane’s free just before the last water break gave Patrickswell a narrow 0-16 to 0-15 lead with fifteen minutes left. The spectators were on the edge of their seats for the final quarter of the match.

Kilmallock poured forward and accumulated three points in a four-minute burst. The scoreboard clock clicked to the 50th minute and Kilmallock were now 0-18 to 0-16 ahead. Diarmaid Byrnes reduced the arrears to a single point, before Graeme Mulcahy and Aaron Gillane exchanged points. There were only six minutes left and Kilmallock were narrowly leading by 0-19 to 0-18. The decisive moment of the match occurred when Kilmallock’s Oisin O’Reilly surged through the Patrickswell defence and delivered a low drive into the far corner. There was now daylight between the teams as Kilmallock led by four points at 1-19 to 0-18. Aaron Gillane’s free point put the ‘Well within a goal and set up an exciting finish. Sadly, Kilmallock were now in fifth gear and they closed out the match with five consecutive points in the last six minutes. The final score was 1-24 to 0-19 to Kilmallock. Hard luck to the players and management. It was a great achievement to reach the County Final.
