Minor Hurling League Division 4 Final, 12th Lock
Lucan Sarsfields 4-11 Kevins 2-10.
Lucan Minor B hurlers captured the league title in a very competitive and entertaining final win over Kevins at the 12th Lock on Sunday morning. This game was closer than the final scoreline might suggest and was very much in the balance up to the final few minutes. It was an excellent contest that swung one way and then the other several times over the hour, before Lucan finally got on top with two late goals. Lucan had started well with a couple of early points but then Kevins got through for a goal and led 1-1 to 0-2 at the first water break. Lucan turned the tide again in the second quarter helped by a great goal by full forward Neil O’Leary and some well taken points and were in front 1-7 to 1-3 at half time.
Fortunes changed again at the start of the second half when Kevins scored 1-3 without reply to lead by 2 after 40 minutes. Lucan responded again with a nice point from Ross Campion and another goal from O’Leary to regain the lead. Kevins responded with two quick scores to level the game 2-8 each going into the final quarter. Following a tense sos uisce for both sides, Kevins regained the lead before Lucan equalised again. Then came a decisive moment when Ryan Brant got on the end of a Lucan delivery to flick to the Kevins net and put a goal between the teams. A Kevins’ point in reply was cancelled out by good points from Neil O’Leary and Liam Farrell to put Lucan 4 ahead and looking nearly safe as the clock ticked towards the finish. Then the matter was finally settled when a Deane Boylan free from about 50 yards deceived all before it and found its way to the net to put Lucan 7 clear and assured of victory.
The Lucan captain Conor Hannon accepted the cup on behalf of the team. This was a deserved win for a team that went through the league unbeaten and played some very nice hurling allied with a high workrate and intensity. It was very much a team performance with a very solid backline providing the platform for the forwards where full forward Neil O’Leary led the way with 2-2 from play. Nine different players contributed to the scoring which shows the spread of ability throughout the team.
Lucan Team/Scorers: Justin Myler, Cian McCormack, Dan McCarthy, Jack Kelly, Conor Hannon, Jamie Ryan, Liam Farrell (0-1), Cian Ryan (0-1), Cillian Morrissey, Deane Boylan (1-2f), Josh Brant (0-2), Niall Higgins (0-1), Gareth Kennedy (0-1), Neil O’Leary (2-2), Ross Campion (0-1). Subs; Aidan Sheary, Adam Duffy, James Goulding, Ryan Brant (1-0), Ryan Fahy, Jamie Ivory.
Mentors: Stephen McCormack, Christy Boylan, John Kennedy, Declan O’Leary, James Cavanagh.
Sunday 29th August saw Lucan’s Minor B hurlers take on Kevins GAA in the Minor Hurling League Division 4 final. Lucan were looking to complete their league campaign unbeaten against a Kevins team that had pushed them to the pin of their collar in the earlier league meeting.
The match threw in at 11:00 on pitch 1 and took a couple of minutes to settle down with both teams trading early points. With Lucan ahead by a point, Kevins scored the first goal of the game to go 2 points up, Lucan responded well with a goal of their own from Neil O’Leary and points from Niall Higgins and Ross Campion to lead at half time 1-7 to 1-4.
The second half started with a resurgent Kevins scoring 4 unanswered points before Lucan got to grips with them again, the Half Back line of Liam Farrell, James Ryan and Connor Hannon started to impose themselves on the game, this lead to Lucan’s Midfield of Cian Ryan and Cillian Morrissey getting more ball and led to another goal from Neil O’Leary.
At the second water break the teams were level 2-8 to 2-8, and the league final looked like it could easily go to either side, the Lucan hurlers had other ideas though, in an outstanding 15 minutes Lucan outscored Kevins by 2-3 to 0-2, the goals coming from Ryan Brant and Deane Boylan. When the final whistle blew the score was Lucan 4-11 Kevins 2-10.
Team captain Connor Hannon accepted the trophy on behalf of the team in what was well deserved recognition of their unbeaten league campaign.
