Hurling

Hard fought Junior Hurling win

***Hard fought win in poor conditions** 2nd March 2014 AHL6 - Civil service 1-5 v Syls 1-6 Islandbridge The score line tells the story of how poor the conditions were but certainly not the effort put in by both teams. Early on, Service coped better and moved into a 1-4 to no score lead after 20 mins before Syls began to exert some influence, Conor Dwyers move to midfield tipping the balance in Syls favour, it yielded 2 frees which Pat Hoyne duly converted with his usual aplomb ! HT score 1-4 to 0-2.

Inter Hurlers open with a draw at Vincents

AHL3 St Vincents 2-09 St Sylvesters 0-15 For the second week in a row we drew at PNU. A fair result I would say after a very good game. Vincents opened strongly ad threatened to blow us away leading 1-04 to 0-01 a couple of Ormonde frees steadied us, Alan, Kevin and Killian got to grips with the middle and Andrew up front and we were were three down at the break.

Minor hurlers disappointing opener

MHL 2 Clan na Mara 0-07 Whitehall Colmcille 1-11 First outing for the amalgamated Syls Scoil outfit but Whitehall were too strong in the important departments, got the goal straight after the break and held us out for the remainder. Defensively we were solid, Barry Cushen made a few important saves while Sean at fullback and Andrew and Fhelim in the half line won their battles. We could have scored more and been closer in the end but Whitehall, who have always hurled in Div1 looked to have more class.

Junior Hurlers lose Top4 Final

AHL6 Top4 Final Skerries Harps 4-10 St Sylvesters 1-8 Probably a fair reflection, we were mostly outclassed by a better balanced Harps team We did put up a great showing in the second half, the highlight a goal on the run by Eoin Kennedy and a few well worked points by Eoin McCarthy, Colm O'Connor and Jonny Conway. Maybe Colm will send a report. Well done lads on a very competitive season, hurling into December ain't bad.

Minor hurlers lose in semis to Lucan

MHC B SF Lucan Sarsfields 4-06 St Sylvesters 2-05 Three goals against us in the first half all but finished our Championship run. Philip hit the post at one end and Lucan drove through for a goal at the other. Two of our backs collided and let them in for another. We got a grip around the middle but we struggled with the size of the field and hit five long range efforts wide. At 3-05 to 0-04 at the break but came out fighting in the second half but, unfortunately the scores failed to come against a tough Lucan rearguard and when their classy full forward goaled again on the break we were in deep trouble.

Dual Player - alive and well

Apparently the day of the dual player is over, even at club level or so we are to believe! But see attached, 8 Clare senior hurlers winning county football and getting to Munster Club Final! Surely if they can do it we should not let our kids be told that they must choose one code over the other........ Ernie

Minor Hurlers great win in extra time

MHC B QF St Sylvesters 3-17 St Brigids 3-16 Dare I say, our best win ever. Battled from behind a number of times against a strong talented Brigids to scrape home by the narrowest of margins. Although we led at half time 1-5 to 1-4 it is fair to say we were mostly chasing the game, a fine Colm Byrne goal and points from Conor, Simon, Collie and Philip bringing is back after a slow start.

Congratulations to Clare and Cork

Cracking All Ireland Final replay, congratulations to both teams on a classic game rounding off a great season for the GAA. Hillary managed to track down Donal O' Donovan after the game and got this pose for a photo. Unfortunately I coudnt get one of myself with him but when we shook hands and I congratulated him he said "thanks for all the training out in Malahide"...

Hurlers in Senior Championship Semi Final

SHC B SF Parnells 2-09 St Sylvesters 1-06 Our first foray into senior hurling came to an honourable end in Parnell Park last Saturday. In a team decimated by emigration and injuries we nonetheless stayed with a talented Parnells outfit and finished the game on the offensive looking for the goal to keep the dream alive.

Minors good win at Ballinteer

MHC B Ballinteer St Johns 3-07 St Sylvesters 2-11 A single point win in difficult windy conditions built on a good defensive display in the first half when we only conceded a single goal and trailed by a point at half time. With the wind favouring us in the second half we took the lead early with points form Shane and Colm Boran before a Colm Byrne goal gave us some daylight.

Hurlers reach Senior Championship SF

SHC B Nmh Olaf 2-09 St Sylvesters 2-14 Somewhat surprising easy victory over the top seeded team, we led from the 12th minute and won well to reach our first ever Senior Hurling Championship semi final. Martin Ormonde and Ciaran Falvey with two late goals gave us a cushion to withstand a disputed goal (through the top of the net we claimed anyway) against us and a late goal and a point by Olafs.

A few good friendlies

Seniors and minors playing plenty of friendlies in preparation for Championship - lots of good points from play in a senior game against Athy, minor hurles had good games against Whitehall and Castlenock and the minor footballers had a good win over Meath U17s

Junior Hurlers lose to Boden

JHC C QF St Sylvester’s 0-8 Ballyboden 2-15 The game started with a fine point from play by a very lively Mannix Ryan for the home side. Ballyboden soon got into their stride and took the lead with some good long range points. They were finding it easier to pick out the man in space and their hurling was very tidy. The also had a potent attack that picked off two fine first half goals and that was the difference between the teams at half time

Hurlers lose to classy Crokes

AHL3 St Sylvesters 2-12 Kilmacud Crokes 5-16 Crokes went ahead early and were very hard to hold while we were slow to get going. Our second half display was more encouraging and it was great to see Andrew back after a long layoff.

Ryan hat trick gets Minors over Lucan

MHL2 St Sylvesters 4-08 Lucan Sarsfields 1-09 A second half hat trick of goals for Paul gave us a surprising win over a Lucan team we never beaten to continue our recent good run. The win was built on a super defensive effort in the first half when Lucan looked like they would overwhelm us but we kept the goals out and were happy to trail by only four, 1-05 to 0-04 at the break.

Hurlers draw and a loss

AHL3 Castlenock 2-11 St Sylvesters 2-11 AHL3 Nmh Barróg 3-15 St Sylvesters 3-05 A good draw mid-week was followed by a below par performance against a slicker looking Barróg on Saturday evening at Kilbarrack.

Minor hurlers win at Clontarf

MHL2 Clontarf 1-09 St Sylvesters 3-10 We haven't beaten Clontarf very often over the past 8 years so it was nice to finally get one over them and continue our 'almost' excellent run of 4 wins from the last 5. Apart from a late goal our defense was excellent, Karl Stacey sweeping up all round him, Matt and Cian very tight, Danny didn't put a foot wrong and the half line of Thomas, Alan and Andrew holding a very fast opposition.

Minor hurlers draw with Judes

MHL2 St Sylvesters 2-13 St Judes 2-13 After two great wins at Crokes and Scoil we were annihilated by Setanta so it was really interesting to see which Syls team showed up against unbeaten Judes. Thankfully it was the determined skilful variety as we gave our best display this year against some very strong opposition. It was great to have Alan Kavanagh and Jack back hurling and they grew in stature as the game progressed but all sixteen players contributed greatly.

Hurlers win well over Commercials

AHL3 St Sylvesters 1-17 Commercials 2-08 We won by 6 over Commercials after a sometimes fractious game in Broomfield. This keeps us in the hunt for promotion. Alan Morris got the goal from an unuasual position of corner forward. Stephen Keogh had a great runout at wing forward, the two O'Flynns in the middle and Dave Keogh at centre back were the pick of our lads. Hillary hit a few super long range points.

Great weekend for The Dubs

Can the Dublin Footballers really be that good . . . time will tell but they certainly look the part . . . and, what about the Hurlers . . . like the Germans or Man U or Kerry, you never beat The Cats in a replay . . . or, do you . . . Dennis Sweeney was in Portlaois . . . as was Colm, Fergus and Damian

Minor hurlers good win over Scoil

MHL 2 St Sylvesters 8-10 Scoil Ui Conaill 2-08 A surprisingly easy win for the minors, second in a row, over a Scoil team that usually put it up to us. In fairness, the general play was fairly even but we kept the goals out when it mattered and benefited from a few misjudgments into the sun to give us goals that effectively killed off the game. Colm Byrne was again in top form and supported by Shane, Simon, Eoin Mc and Jamie firing over some very sweet points, while Colm Boran, Paul Ryan, Eoin Cooney and Mikey contributed goals.
