Minor 1999 - Football and hurling

Minor hurlers lose to strong Plunketts ER

Minor Hurling B Championship St Sylvesters 0-8 Oliver Plunkets 2-10 We exited the championship on Sunday last against a very strong Plunket’s side. Down five points at half time we pulled it back to two ten minutes into the second half. We found it difficult to score and break down the Plunket’s defence, but we worked tirelessly to the end showing the true character this team has displayed over the years.

Minor Hurling Championship called off due to rain

The ref called the game against Erin Isles before the start as it was raining very heavy. Five or six of the lads had played in the U21 game yesterday and it would have been interesting to see how they performed.

Impressive minor win in C'ship

MFC Gr St Sylvesters 2-19 Templeogue Synge St 0-06 Big score in the end but this was a fine competitive game for 40 minutes before a goal gave us 1-10 to 0-06 lead and we never looked back. David Sexton put on a show of point scoring from all angles and was well assisted by Collie Byrne and an also deadly Mark Hazely.

Minor hurlers two in a row

MHC B Sylvesters 0-10 Naomh Barrog 1-6 This was a very tight, physical and feisty affair. Conor Dwyer was glad that his helmet offered the protection he needed. There was nothing easy on offer and scores were hard earned by both sides. We battled hard in every position and were deservedly in front by three points with five minutes left. Barrog burst through to score the only goal of the match and level the scores.

Minor footballers draw at Ballyboden.

After some great competition with Boden last year, our minors continued our rivalry with a hard fought draw. Minor Football A championship St Sylvesters 2-5 Ballyboden 1-8 Sylvester’s didn’t score for the first twenty minutes but they managed to level the scores by half time at 5 points each. The game could have gone either way in the second half with both teams showing great spirit and determination.

1992 Minor Reunion - Sat Sept 30th

1992 was a very successful year for Syls, winning the Minor A Football, runners-up in the Minor A Hurling (not a lot of people know that) and our Minor B footballers winning their championship. There is a reunion of all these lads next Saturday (after the Vincent de Paul Cup Final - make a day of it) . Derek Roche gave me a copy of the Minor Football program, attached. Anyone else got any memorabilia we could share.

MHL2 St Sylvesters 1-11 Erins Isle 1-12 Isles goaled with the last puck of the game well into injury time to win after we had fought our way into the lead with a goal about 10 minutes from time. It was a pity to see our county players umpiring instead of playing.

Panner sent PJP pictures, I think Ernie has some Ollies

Minor As impressive over Vincents

Both Minor Football teams played Vincents in Broomfield this morning. The As really opened up in the second half after being held to a single point at the break. Defensively we were always on top with Conor Quinn solid at fullback, Stephen Cunningham and Jack Hazely commanding in midfield and Conor Mullarkey and Mark Hazely very lively up front. Yet again we have high expectations of our Minors.
