U14 Hurling Update

U14 Hurling Update

The current crop of U14 hurlers have being going very well this year. Division 2 has been incredibly hard fought for past few years with virtually every team in it capable of beating each other on any given day. At the moment however we are currently level on points at the top (albeit it in 2nd place by virtue of scoring difference) having won our last 4 matches on the bounce following an opening day defeat.

U13s just pipped in Div1

The U13A footballers travelled to last year's Southside Champions Clanna Gael this Saturday for a Division 1 league game. Clan had swatted all before them so we knew we were going to be up against it especially as we were missing a couple of players. We played with a strong wind in the first half and despite taking a while to get going we turned 2-07 to 1-0 with Conor Hoyne having a stormer. At half time we had to replace our towering midfielder Andrew Roe and this meant a change in formation, however we continued to play great football and scored 1-01 quickly.

U13 football and hurling update

It was a busy weekend for the U13 hurlers and footballers of St Sylvesters. On Friday night we held the presentation of 2013 Football league medals for Divisions 1 and 5. We had players and families along and hopefully this is the first of many medal presentations we will be doing with these squads over the coming years.

U12Cs win their league

Pride of place this week goes to the Syls U12 C footballers who, on Saturday, clinched the Division 5 League title with a resounding win our Naomh Barrog B’s. Going in to the game, Barrogs were on the same points as us with Skerries a further point back so anything other than a win could see us finish 3rd. However right from the start when Matthew Brenner powered through from midfield to open the scoring with a point, this great bunch of lads never dropped the intensity.

U13s lose out in a thriller

U13 D4 Naomh Olaf won by a goal in a high scoring and very entertaining game where the lead changed hands regularly and we often looked like we would win but a burst of three goals against us mid second half gave us a bit of a hill to climb and we just didn't make. Congratulations to both sides on the quality of the football and the very sporting nature of the game, it was a real cracker.

U14A win away to Crokes

The U14A footballers had a deserved 6 point away win over the huge monolithic club that is Kilmacud Crokes this Saturday. Playing with a strong wind in the first half we turned with only a 2 point lead, we played terribly in the first 20 minutes, we forgot the basics and couldn't pick up or kick a ball but we settled and recovered from being 5 points down and goals from Sean Guiden and Danny Taaffe showed us that we could find a way through.

U13C win and a loss

After two late-in-the-day cancellations put paid to our first two matches going ahead, U13C footballers finally got our league campaign underway with two midweek fixtures in the past few days which produced one win and one loss in Division 8 of the league. The loss came in the first of the fixtures against Cuala B last Thursday night. Having being fairly nip & tuck for most of the match we had gained the upperhand and were leading with 7 minutes to go but Cuala then got a run on us to get in for a few late goals and come out winners 5 – 8 to 4 – 4 in the end.

U13 Hurlers take PJ Troy Cup

The U13 hurlers took part in the annual PJ Troy tournament on Saturday. We were based in Fingallians and our opening group pitted us against the home club and Commercials. We started slowly in both games but generally finished strongly to win both group games. We rotated players from our 17 strong squad to ensure everyone got plenty of time on the pitch.

U13 Footballers win Division1

A seven point win in Skerries Ballast Pit gave our U13 footballers St Sylvester's first Division One win since the Seniors won in 2010. In what was effectively the League Final we produced a very impressive display against a strong determined Skerries outfit, defended bravely facing wind and rain in the second half, breaking well down the wings, midfielders holding their ground and some lovely interplay and scores from a mobile forward line. Congratulations to all the boys, to Ernie Brenner, Niall Guiden, Pat Hoyne and all the parents and supporters, there was great Syls support.

U13 Football update

The U13A Footballers continued on their winning run with an impressive victory away to Whitehall. Despite conceding a goal with the first attack of the game, they were patient and calm and managed to get on top gradually, finishing the first half with a 2-08 to 1-03 lead. Danny Taaffe at full forward had a fabulous game, dominating his man and grabbing a great goal while generally creating havoc.

U13 footballers going well

U13A Football League Division 1 Our U13 A footballers got back to winning ways with a big win over St Vincents on Tuesday. While a score line of 3-15 to 2-02 looks comprehensive, the game was in the melting pot 10 minutes in to the second half when Vincents scored a goal to bring the margin down to a point. However for the last 20 minutes our half back line were on top of everything and we moved up another gear to record a very good win

U12 Football Review

Despite missing a number of regulars our U12 footballers fielded 4 teams on Saturday with a total of 53 players pulling on the Syls jersey in the penultimate round of league games. Our A footballers were missing 6 starters from their previous game and going up against the unbeaten league leaders, St Vincents, that proved too much of a hurdle to climb. Vincents ran out handy winners and so we must settle for second place again this year in Division 1.
