Junior hurlers in playoff position

AHL6: Syls 2-12 Civil Service 1-13, Sun 11th Sept 2016 Broomfield. An important win that moves us into the playoff positions. We traded points in the first 20 minutes with Colm Boran orchestrating midfield, providing some fine deliveries that saw Dan & Seanie combine several times to produce a couple of excellent scores. Civil Service deployed 2 big lads at nos 11 and 14 and they did damage with some no-nonsense hurling, high ball, catch, point. We clawed back a HT 3 point deficit to level it at 8 points apiece midway through the 2nd half but the quick concession of 1-2 had us 5 behind in a blink.

 But great credit to  Padraig, Ronan  and Sean Foley who eventually got to grips with the Service danger men, the highlight being a savage catch by Sean Foley and bursting out at full tilt, delivered a long ball that Sean Graham duly netted. With the defence now looking much more assured, we finished with a late  flourish of 1-2 to come from 3 points down to secure a hard fought but well deserved win.

Other highlights were:  a  commanding performance  by Podge Sheehan at corner back; Ciaran Murphy (Minor) stepped up to wing-back and gave a very competent performance;  another 1-9 haul for Sean Graham (at this stage I just  cut and paste from previous report ..!). Gavin as always grafted hard winning a lot of dirty ball;  Great to have Kevin McLoughney back in the fold after his J1 exploits.
