Hurling news and reports

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

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.

Junior hurlers lose in C C'ship and draw in F C'ship

It was a very tall order asking us to play three hurling championship games at the same time on Sunday morning without even some backup from the minors. The Junior As lost to Realt Dearg at Drimnagh Castle and I hope Bernard has a short report. Danny and Jim managed to field the third team thanks to lads like Dylan, Barry, Seamus showing a great bit of club spirit. A draw against a fairly strong looking Finnians in River Valley was an excellent achievement. Billo made two great saves early on,

Inter hurlers run into strong Boden

Inter hurlers run into strong Boden

SHC B Ballyboden St Endas 5-18 St Sylvesters 4-12 A couple of early goals for Boden set the scene and we never really threatened in this Snr B Championship round robin. With a bit of a wind behind us we recovered somewhat in the closing stages of the first half to trail by five at the break but goals we needed didn't come until late in the second half when Boden were also scoring freely at the other end.

Minor B Hurlers go top of Div5

The Minor B hurlers had a hard fought victory over Wild Geese this morning to go top of Div 5. Oldtown is never an easy place to go and we looked unsettled early on as the forwards wasted quite a few good chances. However Daniel Mannix fired in a goal which kept us in the game and after a tough first half against the breeze we only trailed by a point at the break

Junior As lose to Realt Dearg

Junior As lose to Realt Dearg

AHL6: Realt Dearg 1-16 St Sylvesters 1-11, Sun 10 April 2016, Drimnagh Castle. Never more than a puck of the ball between these two teams and on this occasion Realt came out on top. We started slowly playing with wind and even though we had a 5 point advantage at half time , it left us with a big 2nd half challenge playing into a strong wind. Main damage was done in that 3rd quarter when we struggled to win our own puckouts. Realt punished us scoring 1-4 to 0-1 in that period.

Unfortunately Gregs juniors were beatan at Drimnagh Castle by Realt Dearg and the Bs came up against a good Towers team in the afternoon.

Minor hurlers win high scoring encounter

MHL2 St Sylvesters 4 - 11. Thomas Davis 4 - 7 The Syls boys got off to a slow start here in rain soaked pitch 1 in Broomfield . Playing against a strong breeze the Syls mentors took a gamble by going all out for a couple of early goals. This didn't work out for Syls as we conceded a couple of soft goals midway through the first half so plans had to change

junior hurlers win over Raheny

junior hurlers win over Raheny

Classic game of two halves, 10 points to nil for Syls at HT. 1-5 a piece in the 2nd half, but ran out comfortably enough winners in the end.(1-15 to 1-5). Syls fielded a very young team , 10 or 12 starting players under 20. However the introduction of Ciaran Murray brought the average age up a tad ..! Highlights were Sean Foleys display at full back and a very skilful full forward line of EoinMc, Daniel Murphy and Seanie Graham Team: David Kennedy, Killian Roberts, Sean Foley, Eoin Ryan , Ciaran Murphy, Ronan Kennedy, Colm Boran (0-7 f), Mikey Meaney, Jodi Hickey, Shane Mc Shera, Johnny Conway, Eoin Kennedy, Sean Graham (1-1), Eoin Mc Carthy (0-4), Daniel Murphy (0-3), Russie Cleere for Ciaran Murphy, Ciaran Murray for Killian Roberts, Airy Cleere for Shane Mc Shera

Inter hurling v Towers match abandoned

Inter hurling v Towers match abandoned

AHL3 Round Towers C v St Sylvesters The match was abandoned after about 25 minutes because one of the Towers lads dislocated his knee and we had to wait for an ambulance. We wish him well. It was great that we had Fergus Byrne in attendance and he administered professional aid which limited the damage. We were behind by three points at the time but one really bright aspect was Dan Murphy's very lively display at corner forward.

Congratulations to Ballyboden and Na Piarsaigh

Great display by Boden in winning the All Ireland Club title, congratulations to Andy McEntee and all concerned. I particularly like that four promoinent hurlers played in the final and their club have consistent success in both codes. The Limerick lads in the club were celebrating Na Prarsaigh win and are hoping it bodes well for the year ahead, maybe it will.

Junior B hurlers win at Drimnagh Castle

Danny and Jim took their charges to the southside for a great start to the new season.. It is a great achievement to have developed a third adult hurling team last year and it will stand to us as we progress to regaining and sustaining our senior hurling status so hats off to Danny and Jim and their players. AHL 8 --Drimnagh Castle -- Sunday 6th March 2016, 3:00 p.m. throw-in St Sylvesters 2-13 While I'm at it I must give great credit to Realt Dearg, a new club fielding teams in AHL6, AHL8 and AHL9.

Heartbreak for Minor Hurlers

Heartbreak for Minor Hurlers

Report from Anthony attached. . . . MHC C Final St Sylvesters 1-12 Ballyboden St Endas 3-07 AET Smashing game of hurling in wet windy conditions at O'Toole Park, led by two points with 3 minutes remaining in extra time only for the Boden 11 to take a high ball and evade our defence for a brilliant goal from which we couldn't recover. The lads should be very proud of themselves, There was good Syls support, obviously disappointed for our team and fair play to Boden, they were great opponents.

Junior B Hurlers on course for promotion

AHL9: (Promotion Semi-Final ) Syls 3-9 Scoil Ui Chonnaill 2-4 Sun 22nd Nov 2015 Broomfield Scoil under the stewardship of Tommy Naughton showed up with serious intent written all over their warm-up. Syls are familiar with Scoil having played together last year in a combined Syls/Scoil minor team. But Syls were not phased by this and effectively won the match with a blistering first half display, scoring 3-7 to Scoil’s single point. The pick of the scores was another goal bound rocket from Declan Markey and a delightful point from Hugh Murray
