Lucan Sarsfields GAA Club Notes
September 17, 2019
A good win for our Senior Camogie team in Championship, which gets them back on track, they now face a massive game away to Ballyboden this Sunday at 10am. The Jnr 3 team Camogie team had a good win on Thursday, unfortunately the Inter team lost out to a strong Crumlin outfit. Both U15 hurling teams had good wins over the weekend and it now sees the 15A hurlers through to the Championship Final vs Kilmacud Crokes. U16 footballers opened their Championship with a draw, match report below. Disappointment for our Minor A hurlers as they crashed out of Championship, following the loss to a very good and fancied Castleknock side.
This weekend sees our Senior Hurlers in Chamapionship Qtr Final vs Craobh Chiarain at 3pm in Parnell on Saturday. Also this weekend our Minor Footballers will be looking to get their Championships back on track with a win, A are away to Naomh Mearnog, B at home to Whitehall Sunday at 11am. Then finally on Sunday our Jnr B hurlers will be looking to secure 2 promotions in a row as they take on a tough NaFianna side in the Championship semi-final, 3pm 12th Lock. Support very welcome and appreciated as always.
Of course there was a lot of history made last weekend, and the club is of course very proud of our latest All Ireland winners, well done to Darren Gavin (Dublin Senior Football) Abby Sheils (Dublin Senior Ladies Football) and Ken Robinson and Paul Casey (Dublin Ladies Mgt team); As always they all represented the club so well and we are very proud of their achievements.
Our U14 Ladies footballers had a wonderful morning, hosting St Josephs Doorebarefield, before heading in on the bus, organised by our Ladies Section, to break the record crowd at the All Ireland Ladies Final, great support and well done to all involved.

Juvenile Football Report
Date: 14th September, 2019
Venue: Coláiste Phádraig CBS
Competition: U16A Football Championship
Final Score: Lucan Sarsfields 3-16, Cuala 4-13
Lucan began their opening Championship game at a blistering pace and led 2-4 to no score after the first 15 minutes. Cuala responded with a couple of points before a controversial penalty awarded to Cuala narrowed the gap before half-time.
The second half began with Cuala scoring a number of unanswered goals and points as momentum started to shift towards Cuala, and they led by 5 points going into the last 5 minutes.
However, Lucan showed great resolve and scored 1-2 without reply to bring the game level and were very unfortunate not to win it in the end.
Great resolve to come back from the brink of defeat, scoring 3-13 from play in the game.
Next up is Sylvesters away on the 28th September.
