Lucan Sarsfields GAA Club Notes
July 22, 2019
Great win for our Minor footballers over the weekend, St Vincents 1.07 Lucan 2.18, and they now head into their final game vs NaFianna on Wednesday (Mobhi Rd 7.30, support required) knowing a win will secure the league title. Disappointment for Senior Footballers midweek as they lost a tricky away fixture to Thomas Davis and slipped out of the playoff spots, a good away win for our Inters, but both Jnr teams lost. Our Senior hurlers left themselves in a tricky position with two games to go, against St Brigids (a) and Crumlin (h), they will need two wins and St Judes not to pick up points to escape the relegation play off. Two losses and they could be relegated automatically. Inter Ladies lost out midweek but have a home game against Skerries this week, Wednesday 7.30 12th Lock, a home win should secure a semi-final spot, so big support needed. Jnr A hurlers slipped up in the league as well, but Jnr Bs maintained pressure at the top of the league with a big win. U14 football and U15 hurling both recorded good wins during the week. Senior footballers play St Vincents away on Wednesday as well 7.30pm.
Well done to Daire Newcombe, Harry Ladd, Mark Lavin and Emmet Allen who are part of the Dublin U20 footballers that secured a Leinster title on Friday night. Disappointment for Dublin U16 Camogie as they crashed out of Championship by the smallest of margins, a one point loss to Wexford, well done to Lauren Dawson © Phoebe Shannon Sinead Daly Millie Reid and Lilly Rooney who represented the club so well over the course of the Championship. A draw for the Dublin Senior Camogie team at the weekend with Ali, Emma and Orla all playing their part, Chloe and Aoife who lost with the Dublin Inter team so a tough weekend all round.

The U11 Camogie team played in the mini games at half time during the Dublin/Clare camogie match. Lucan played Whitehall Colmcille in the mini games and show great skill, lifting, striking and scoring a few points. After a thrilling camogie match, with end to end action which saw Clare equalised in the final 10 secs of the game, afterwards the U11 girls got to meet their camogie heros. Thanks to Ali, Emma, Orla and John for chatting to the girls and providing them with a great experience and photo opportunity.

Juvenile Hurling Report
U15A Division 1 Hurling- 21/7/19 Home vs Naomh Barrog
A bright and breezy morning at the 12th Lock. We choose to play against a very strong wind in the first half. The strong almost diagonal wind across the juvenile pitch played havoc with our shooting, and we found ourselves behind by 0-6 to 0-2 after 15 minutes, but we kept plugging away and outscored Naomh Barrog in the remainder of the first half, with a well taken goal from Michael Cunningham just before the break, drawing us level half time 1-5 to 0-8. With the wind at our backs, we pushed on in the 2nd half. We did have some nervous moments but 2 great saves from Cathal Doody prevented Naomh Barrog from mounting a comeback and Lucan emerged as 1-18 to 0-14 winners.
Again, proving difficult to field teams during the summer months with 9 of our panel not available through injuries and holidays. Thanks to the U15B hurlers (Niall Higgins, Conor O’Neill, Matthew Ryan and Ross Cunningham) who did great for us over the last 3 games and to Diarmuid Kennedy for supporting with 3 U14 A lads (Daragh Lyons, Cathal Kennedy and Sean Langton)
Team; Cathal Doody, Matthew Ryan, Rian Fortune, Liam Farrell, Jamie Smith, Joey Mc Sweeney, Finn Bruton, Rossa Daly (0-3), Liam Garrigan (0-3), Conor Sheary (0-1), Joey Dunne (0-10), Michael Cunningham (1-0), Adam Duffy, Daragh Lyons, Conor O’ Neil. Subs Cathal Kennedy for Conor O’Neill and Sean Langton (0-1) for Adam Duffy
