Junior B Hurlers on course for promotion

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

Junior A Hurlers fall at last hurdle

Junior A Hurlers fall at last hurdle

AHL6: (Promotion Final ) Whitehall 2-12 Syls 1-13 Sun 22nd, Nov 2015 Cloghran. Disappointment all round as Whitehall once again prove to be our bogey team and deny us a long awaited promotion to Div5. We struggled to find our rhythm in the opening half and the concession of frees saw us trail by 3 points at HT. A much improved showing in the 2nd half, which we won a by a point, despite leaking 2 goals goes to prove that we have the capability, just need a more consistent delivery of it.

Hurlers in playoff for AHL5

AHL6: (S/F Promotion Playoff) Realt Dearg 1-8 Syls 2-12 Sun 8th Nov 2015 Drimnagh. In dreadfully wet and windy conditions, Syls coped the better, coupled with a solid performance throughout the game gave us a well-deserved win. Eoin Kennedy delivered a very consistent effort throughout, picking off 2 points in each half. Sean Graham wreaked havoc, especially in the first half, scoring 3 points, setting up Martin Ormond for the goal and only an excellent save denied him another goal. His touch and control was outrageous considering the conditions.

Senior Hurlers relegated

After a season where we never seemed to catch a break, losing many senior players to injury and travel, we are now relegated back to Inter Hurling having lost on Saturday to Faughs. We have brought through enough players to feel we can come back up, I wasn't at the game yesterday but, apart from Na Fianna and Crumlin, I felt we were generally comfortable at this level and I hopewe can quickly regroup. Credit is due to Leonard, Declan, Pat and Eamon Bryce for our first year in Senior League

Junior Hurlers up to second in AHL6

AHL9: Syls 3-9 Round Towers (C) 2-12 Sun 11th Oct 2015 Broomfield Towers are unbeaten and top this league, Syls doing well also in 3rd position and well in contention for a playoff spot so both teams had all to for and they didn’t disappoint. We were treated to a very entertaining and sporting match. The lead changed hands several times with never more than a point in it so when Towers went 2 up with FT approaching things looked ominous.

Minor hurlers leave it behind in Ballyboden

MHC C Gr1 Ballyboden 1-09 St Sylvesters 0-10 We have already qualified for the semi-finals but it was still a pity to leave this one behind us at the wide open breezy Ballycullen. We trailed by 4 after playing into a strong wind in the first half and reeled in Boden in the first ten minutes of the second. Unfortunately we let Boden break away for a goal and a point and then we proceeded to make very hard work of pulling just two points back from plenty of possession and opportunities.

Junior B hurlers still flying high

AHL 9 Broomfield 27th September 2015 St Sylvester’s 4-14, St Joseph’s OCB 5-1 A well contested game of hurling saw 27 supporters come out in the bright autumn sunshine. Included were some parents of the younger players while the older players brought their children. A couple of 3-generation groups were also there. After a strange first half the score was Syls 2-6 to 4-0 for OCB due to individual excellence by the OCB midfielder, Mark Finlay. In the second half Syls tightened up their game with Daniel Colclough excellent in goals and Matthew Rosenell making good clearances.

JHC C QF St Sylvesters 2-16 Liffey Gaels 3-04 A pretty comprehensive win in the championship quarter finals over Liffey Gaels, a good mix of experience and youth meant we had a lot more running in us and an almost flawless display of free taking by Colm Boran coupled with some excellent hurling from Sean Graham, Thomas Colclough and Johnney Conway kept the scores ticking over.

Hurlers run into strong Na Fianna

AHL2 St Sylvesters 1-15 Na Fianna 0-21 A late goal made the scoreline more respectable but Na Fianna had opened up a six point lead in the last quarter while playing some of the best hurling I have seen in Broomfield in a while. Up til then we had put up a very game display, recovering from a very slow start to trail by three points facing the wind in the first half, Na Fianna finishing the half with two sweet points.

Seniors run Crokes close

Seniors run Crokes close

AFL1 St Sylvesters 1-10 Kilmacud Crokes 1-12 A soft early goal and missed chances in the first half were our downfall in this senior league game in Broomfield. It took us a while to settle but we recovered to trail by four at the break. The second half was much better from our perspective, we mostly controlled the game, Mark Hazely gave an exhibition of free taking but all too often our attack broke down through being dispossed or errant passing and we didn't take on enough scores to get at least a draw we would have deserved.
