Battle of Clontarf twenty sixteen

2005 boys Community Games Hurling A Titanic performance by all, in terrible conditions. It's been said "the harder you try, the luckier you get" ohh boy, did the boys try hard and earn their luck. Syls had wonder saves, scored wonder goals from impossible angles, late on Clontarf hit the inside of the goal post and the ball bounced around the Syls box, the Syls boys showed great hunger to get in brave last ditch blocks as Clontarf went for the win aided by a strong breeze .

Late in the game the Syls boys dug out a free 20 yards out, the call from the boys was "we need a goal", Harry stood up to the plate and faced about 8 Clontarf boys on the line, he placed the ball powerfully into the net. This broke the spirit of the Tarf boys who had lead all the way through the game, in the following  plays , the syls defenders stood firm, dishing out some tough fair shoulders to protect their goal. At the final whistle there was great scenes of joy as the boys went looking for puddles to slide into!  A Fantastic never give up attitude prevailed in the difficult conditions, to deliver a deserved  1 point win.
