SENIOR HURLERS: The Senior hurlers had mixed fortunes in the City Hurling League last week. In their opening fixture of the competition, Patrickswell travelled to Caherdavin to meet Na Piarsaigh. The opening stages were keenly contested as both sides scored two points within four minutes. Our hosts increased the tempo and accrued 1-3 without reply during a four-minute spell. Patrick Kirby stemmed the tide with a point, which was quickly followed by scores from Jason Gillane and Jack Kelleher. After fifteen minutes, the scoreline was 1-5 to 0-5 in favour of the Light Blues. While Na Piarsaigh stretched their lead to four points, Patrickswell notched four consecutive points in eight minutes to equalise at 0-9 to 1-6. Patrick Kirby and Jack Kelleher traded points with Na Piarsaigh, before Jack Kelleher gave Patrickswell a 0-12 to 1-8 lead. The home team responded with three points in stoppage time to lead by 1-11 to 0-12 at the interval.

The second half began with a surge of four points from Patrickswell (Jack Kelleher and Kevin O’Brien with two points each) and three points in response from Na Piarsaigh. Calvin Carroll and Darragh Ahern put the ‘Well ahead at 0-18 to 1-14; however Na Piarsaigh accrued two points to re-take the lead.  There was another flurry of points as John Kirby and Jason Gillane cancelled out Na Piarsaigh. By the 45th minute, the score was 1-18 to 0-20. The hosts increased their intensity and scored two points to lead by a goal with ten minutes left. Darragh Ahern trimmed the lead to 1-20 to 0-21 but the game was decided by four straight Na Piarsaigh points to establish a 1-24 to 0-21 lead in the 56th minute. Due to injuries and stoppages, there was a substantial amount of injury time. Jack Kelleher was accurate from four frees, but Na Piarsaigh managed to hold off Patrickwell with a trio of points. The final score was a 1-27 to 0-25 reverse for Patrickswell.

Four days later, Patrickswell welcomed Mungret to Pairc Antoin O’Briain. The ‘Well made a rapid start and led by 0-5 to 0-2 by the eighth minute (Jack Kelleher 0-2, Josh Considine, Calvin Carroll and Darragh Ahern). Jack Kelleher claimed two more points, although Mungret responded with a score of their own. Jonathon McMahon’s goal was decisive and built a 1-7 to 0-3 margin by the 20th minute. While Mungret scored a fresh point, Darragh Ahern, Calvin Carroll and Cian Fitzgerald opened up a nine-point lead. Mungret’s next three points were interrupted by Jack Kelleher’s point to reduce their arrears to 1-11 to 0-7. Patrickswell’s path to victory was smoothed by Jack Kelleher’s goal and more points from Thomas O’Brien and Josh Considine. While Mungret notched the last point of the first half, Patrickswell were ahead by 2-13 to 0-8 at the interval.

The second half did not start favourably for the ‘Well. We failed to score for ten minutes and Mungret added four points to trim the deficit to 2-13 to 0-12. Thankfully Darragh Ahern, Josh Considine and Jack Kelleher were on hand to settle any nerves. There were ten minutes left and the buffer was 2-16 to 0-12. Jack Kelleher’s three frees were matched by Mungret’s four points and the gap hovered at nine points with seven minutes left. Mungret were left reeling by two goals in a minute from Jonathon McMahon and Calvin Carroll. When Thomas O’Brien scored a point, Patrickswell were 4-20 to 0-16 ahead. Mungret closed out the match with two points to ensure a 4-20 to 0-18 victory for John O’Meara’s men.

The Senior hurlers are slated to play Kildimo at home on Saturday June 26 at 7.30pm.

INTERMEDIATE HURLERS: Patrickswell edged out Na Piarsaigh in the City Intermediate League after a devastating late goal blitz decided a competitive match. Peter Harty registered the first point within a minute, however Na Piarsaigh produced three consecutive points to take the lead. Two Peter Harty points were sandwiched between opposition points to leave the 15th minute score at 0-5 to 0-3 for the Light Blues. Na Piarsaigh accrued two more points, but the ‘Well equalised through a Josh Carey goal and a Peter Harty free.  Once again, Na Piarsaigh notched two additional points before Pa Kiely and Peter Harty restored parity. Na Piarsaigh had the final say in the first half with a closing point to lead by 0-10 to 1-6.

The start of the second half was a tense affair. In the space of thirteen minutes, both teams could only manage one point apiece. Peter Harty’s point equalised the match at 1-8 to 0-11 before another barren scoring spell of eight minutes. Cian Enright, Owen McNamara and Jamie Dillon produced more points, but they could not shake off Na Piarsaigh. The game was in the balance in the 56th minute as Patrickswell held a slender 1-11 to 0-13 lead in this exciting battle. There was a grandstand finale in store for the spectators. Amazingly, Pa Dundon’s men stunned Na Piarsaigh with three goals in just four minutes. The scoreline had shifted from a tight match to a seemingly easy win. However, the final score of 4-11 to 0-14 was not a fair reflection of the contest. The match had been in the balance throughout.

The Intermediate hurlers are scheduled to play Crecora away on Thursday June 24 at 8pm, before hosting Ballybrown on Sunday June 27 at 12 noon.

JUNIOR B HURLERS: In the West Junior B Hurling League, Patrickswell were narrowly defeated by Templeglantine by 1-16 to 2-12. Their next fixture is scheduled for Sunday June 27 against Castletown-Ballyagran.

JUNIOR A HURLERS: The Junior A hurlers suffered disappointment in the County Championship final against Croagh-Kilfinny. Earlier in the week, Patrickswell had overcome Dromcollogher-Broadford in the semi-final by 3-15 to 0-11 to reach the decider. The opening stages of the final were fiercely contested and the rate of scoring was initially low. Croagh-Kilfinny struck two points within three minutes, before Paul O’Brien and Barry Foley restored parity by the 13th minute. Our opponents nudged ahead with a fresh point; however Peter Harty equalised in the 15th minute. The next ten minutes were dominated by Croagh-Kilfinny and they were rewarded by four consecutive points. Patrickswell trailed by 0-7 to 0-3 and needed a response. When Barry Foley slotted over a free, Patrickswell were within a goal. Once again, Croagh-Kilfinny increased the tempo and secured three more points without reply. At the close of the first half, Barry Foley scored a much-needed point. The half-time score was 0-10 to 0-5 to Croagh-Kilfinny.

The second half began with Patrickswell on the back foot. Croagh-Kilfinny notched a brace of points within two minutes of the restart. Peter Harty’s free reduced the arrears, but the West Men experienced another purple patch and claimed five points in succession. The scoreboard in the 43rd minute displayed a deficit of 0-17 to 0-6. Peter Harty and Paul O’Brien scored points that stemmed the tide. Unfortunately Crogh-Kilfinny were rampant in the closing 15 minutes and accrued another 2 goals and 5 points without response. The final score was 2-22 to 0-8. Hard luck to the players and management. It was a magnificent season.

SENIOR HURLERS: The Senior hurlers commence the City Senior Hurling League with a visit to Na Piarsaigh on Tuesday June 15 at 7.30pm. On Saturday June 19 at 7.30pm, Patrickswell will entertain Mungret.
