Clonard U10s played St Mary’s of Rosslare in hurling in Coolcotts on Friday. Both clubs fielded two teams – with an eight-a-side game and a seven-a-side game taking place. The games were played in three fifteen minute periods and were competitive throughout. The Clonard eight-a-side team were out of the blocks quick and played their best hurling of the season in the first fifteen minutes – while it was too hard for the blues to keep this high standard up throughout the game they remained strong and committed. A sincere well done is due to all the players. The seven a side team were the opposite – under a lot of pressure from the start but played their way into it to have stronger second and third periods. A sincere well done is also due to all the players on the seven-a-side game with Josh demonstrating good length in his puck outs and making a good assist for Clonard’s final goal. Cormac and Shannon were unequalled in their commitment and bravery and Kyle and Orlaith stood up to the challenge of the Rosslare attacks. Ella and Jenna were in the attacking third working hard. Finn made his debut for the 10s on the night and gave it his all. Clonard Abú.
