Junior hurlers great comeback against Crokes

AHL6: Syls 1-16 Kilmacud Crokes 1-15, Sun 25th Sept 2016 Broomfield.Whe n you consider that at one stage Crokes were 8 points up, had also missed a penalty, you might be forgiven for thinking a win for Syls was not on the cards. But not for the first time in recent games, this team dug deep to get back into the game and then forged on to win.

Graham was back at fullback and Kev Clarke played out a competitive battle against a handy looking #14. Richie and Enda covered the middle well in an all round decent display.

Junior hurlers in playoff position

Junior hurlers in playoff position

AHL6: Syls 2-12 Civil Service 1-13, Sun 11th Sept 2016 Broomfield. An important win that moves us into the playoff positions. We traded points in the first 20 minutes with Colm Boran orchestrating midfield, providing some fine deliveries that saw Dan & Seanie combine several times to produce a couple of excellent scores. Civil Service deployed 2 big lads at nos 11 and 14 and they did damage with some no-nonsense hurling, high ball, catch, point. We clawed back a HT 3 point deficit to level it at 8 points apiece midway through the 2nd half but the quick concession of 1-2 had us 5 behind in a blink.

Hurlers lose in C'ship at Barróg

SHC B Naomh Barróg 2-13 St Sylvesters 0-10 We dominated the early exchanges but didn't take enough scores from some good ball winning up front. Collie Byrne took most of our scores from frees and , while Tony Dunne took off a string of great saves, Barrógs more accurate forwards hit two goals and some lovely points. We lost Killian to a second yellow mid second half and although we fought hard we couldn't bridge the gap.

AHL6 v Kevins

AHL6: Kevins 4-14 Syls 1-14 Sunday 28th August 2016 : Dolphin Park Despite the concession of 2 goals we worked our way back into the match and were only 2 points adrift with HT approaching. Unfortunately Kevins scored their 3rd goal on the stroke of HT and all our good work was undone.

Hurling Championship off again

The hurling championship game fixed for this week has been postponed by CCC due to some mixup in fixtures. This is on top of the hurlers getting a walk-over from St Vincents in the league last week and the previous championship game v Vincents called off due to no ref being available.

Junior A hurlers go out to Skerries

Junior A hurlers go out to Skerries

JHC-C-Q Final: Skerries 4-18 Syls 0-9, Sunday 14th August 2016 – Skerries The final score-line is a bit harsh on us. We were only 3 points adrift at HT having missed a couple of goal chances. Skerries started the 2nd half with more intent and rattled off 3 points before getting that crucial goal which in truth put the match beyond us. We struggled after that, and even the injection of over 100 years experience..!! in the form of Pat Hoyne, Declan Markey and Derek Roche couldn’t turn it around and in fairness to Skerries (who are a Division ahead of us in the league) they pushed on and ran out comfortable winners.

Junior hurlers lose to Castlenock in C'ship QF

Junior hurlers lose to Castlenock in C'ship QF

JHC F Castlenock 2-14 St Sylvesters 0-16 Just ran away from us in the last quarter, Castlenock were able to strengthen the team from the line while we had no replacements and just couldn't quite hold onto them. Two early goals put us in the hole, we got back to a point deficit a few times but probably needed the goal to get us ahead and didn't manage one fro a few chances.

Minor Hurlers  come up short at Oldtown

Minor Hurlers come up short at Oldtown

MHL5 League Final Wild Geese 1-14 St Sylvesters 2-06 We lost by five points after a fine competitive game to Wild Geese. Syls started well with two excellent early goals from Sean Drumm but the home side picked away at us, their numbers 8 and 12 hitting some excellent points, Brian Murray and Gavin Hydes responding for us. We lost Murray to injury at half time, he looked very uncomfortable and I believe he went for treatment so hope he is ok. That knocked us back a little in the second half but stayed within three points until the last few minutes. Great achievement fielding a second competitive hurling team. Congrats to Wild Geese, they are really pushing hurling in Fingal and great credit to them,

AHL 8 Update - going well

AHL 8 Update - going well

The Junior B hurling team heads into the 3-week competition break in a healthy state. In the league, we had a good win over promotion rivals Wild Geese on 30th June by 0-17 to 1-10 where Colm O Connor’s 11 points were the winning of the game. Immediately after was another league match on Leinster Hurling final morning against Na Gael Oga out in St Catherine’s Pk when Gary Plunkett, flanked by Kieran Canny gave a great full back display in a 0-11 to 1-4 win with Deccy Markey in good scoring form.

Inter hurlers lose to Olafs

AHL3 We lsot by 4 in the end but this was a game we easily could have won, we simply hit too many wides at critical times and our heads seemed to drop late in the game. We lost earlier in the week to Finbarrs in the Championship but, unlike that game, I thought we looked the better team on Saturday and was disapppinted the way we fell away. Falvey scored a cracking early goal, Alan Kenny and Dara Flaherty were solid at the back and Killian was the pick of the forwards.

Hurlers lose to Finbarrs

SHC B Nmh Fionnbarra 4-16 St Sylvesters 0-10 Slow start, tight field, we hit a lot of wides in the first half while Finbarrs Dubs star Eamon Dillon was in good form.

Minor A hurlers win again - share top spot

Minor A hurlers win again - share top spot

MHL2 I don't see the score posted but I believe we won by a single point over Isles of the Sea (Scoil Ui Conaill and Clanna Gael Fontenoy). The first half had some excellent hurling from both sides and it was great to see some of the minor footballers show up to ensure we had a strong side as it's often hard to field at this time of year.

St Sylvesters Hurling Camp 2016

St Sylvesters Hurling Camp 2016

We had another fantastic week of hurling in Broomfield this week with one hundred and five young energetic St Sylvesters hurlers taking part. This is the largest number we have had over the seven years that the camp is running. It is a tribute to all the hard work being done by the mentors in the juvenile section.

Hurlers pulled back to a late draw

Hurlers pulled back to a late draw

AHL3 St Sylvesters 3-13 St Peregrines 3-13 I love a bit of fast ground hurling and bemoan the rugby style scrummaging that is all too prevalent in the game today so I was both admiring and disappointed of a fast low pull on a rebounding sliothar by the Peregrines wing forward to goal and secure a draw in last nights Inter Hurling game in Broomfield. We led for pretty much all the game, by eight points at one stage, so it was certainly disappointing to drop a point in the end. Conor Meaney was probably our standout player with a few excellent points, Ciaran Falvey had a great game in the corner and the Flarertys and Morrises were solid in defence.

Mannix goal secures hurling championship win

Mannix goal secures hurling championship win

SHC B Gr1 St Sylvesters 1-13 Kilmacud Crokes B 0-14 A very even and well contested game, Crokes led up to about 50 minutes when Mannix fielded a long delivery, wheeled left and blasted a fine goal from about the 21 to give us the lead. Collie Byrne hit a free from over 90 yards and we held off Crokes late charge. Our selection is devestated at this time of year between the Euros, US travel and other reasons. Mannix and Colm Boran stepped up from the juniors and Colm contributed two good points, Anthony, Enda and Graham were very solid at the back, Andrew busy in the middle giving us our second win in the championship. Fionn Carney and Conor Meaney stepped in from the footballers and at least Mikey and Sean Graham from the minors to make this a good club effort.

Junior A’s back to winning ways

Junior A’s back to winning ways after a 2-7 to 1-14 win over Raheny in Junior C Championship. The win was important to keep us in the race for a top 4 finish. A win in our final round robin game against Olafs (Sunday 19th June Broomfield 11:00 ) would guarantee a QF spot. Missing our Minor player contingent due to exams, this proved to be a tough test away from home.

CELTIC CHALLENGE MATCH REPORTS - WEDNESDAY, MAY 25TH FRI, 27TH MAY 2016 Match Reports from Wednesday's Celtic Challenge Round 4 games: Dublin Clarke 0-19 Westmeath 1-04 Dublin Clarke continued their winning ways with a convincing win over a very well organised and resolute Westmeath side. It was a cagey opening with teams trading scores before Clarke's backs got on top with Hercus Svinghas and Joey Mowlds impressing throughout. A series of well taken score from Kevin Desmond, Luke McDwyer and Billy Ryan saw Dublin Clarke take a lead of 11-4 at the break with Westmeath unlucky not to be closer,

Junior Bs complete a pretty good week for hurling

AHL8 St Sylvesters 0-20 Counsel Gaels 0-15 Lively entertaining game in Broomfield finished off a busy week for our hurlers. Nice mix of experience, Colm O'Connor, Fergus Rooney, Ian McCarrerty, , Billo, Declan Markey and more with Paddy Mc, Killian Haverty, Loyd giving us our fifth full team of the week where we had two minor wins, two junior wins and a loss in Inter and I'm sure we fielded over 80 hurlers in all.

Hurlers lose by 4 at Nmh Barróg

AHL3 Naomh Barróg 1-15 St Sylvesters 1-11 Both sides hit a lot of wides but Barróg were probably the better team on the night although we might have stolen it. Killian wnet off injured early on and with Collie Byrne county tied we just never achieved the level of performance displayed against Marnógs two weeks ago. Alan Kenny was again our man of the match with some fine catches and an excellent solo goal. Conor Ryan and Mossie were the pick of the backs and Dave Casey hit some great points early on.

Jnr Hurlers win against Ciarans

AHL6 St Sylvesters 5-08 Craobh Ciaran 0-08 Score tells it's own story. It was a lively competitive game with lots of good hurling and scores but the difference being our goal scoring from a more lively full forward line, Johnney Conway and Seannie Graham latching on to opportunities while David Kenneddy was flawless in our goal and well fronted by an organisted backline.

Both Minor Hurling teams had good wins

MHL D2 St Finbars 3-08 St Sylvesters 4-17 Great win away in the Boggies against a Finbars team that never gave up but each time they scored we went straight down and responded. The defense again were great, Liam Foley put his body on the line in goals, Philip held a big lively full forward, Ciaran and Barry in the corners very tught and brave, Eamon had a great battle with the opposing centre forward. Up front Luke Hughes gave a class display of point scoring and Sean Graham also very impressive. I heard the B team had a single point win at Ballyboden and sit third in the table, great stuff lads.

Hurlers first ever win over neighbours Nmh Marnóg

Hurlers first ever win over neighbours Nmh Marnóg

SHC B St Sylvesters 1-18 Naomh Marnóg 1-16 Tense game with a great crowd in Broomfield on Saturday evening saw our hurlers achieve our first ever win over Marnóg in Senior or Inter hurling. There was never more than two or three points between the teams, we trailed by a goal going into the last ten minutes but great battling saw us finish very strongly to take the points to a huge cheer from good support. Martin Ormonde hit 13 from 13 frees and 65's while Alan Kenny gave a man of the match performance at centre back.

Junior Hurlers meet strong Realt Dearg

This was the 2nd meeting of these teams in two weeks and the return of Ciaran Murray, Mannix Ryan and Hillary to the starting 15 added some badly needed experienced. But we were up against very well organised and drilled Realt and unfortunately came up a bit short in every department.
