Team News

Adult Football Report

This week-end started with an All-county Football semi-final for our Intermediate football team. they lost the toss and battled a strong wind conceding 12 points in the first half to a Boden side who took advantage of the wind and took their chances. This lead was unfortunately to much for the Lucan side to come back from. Final score was 0-5 to 0-18. Although the result did not go our way the lads can be proud that they progressed this year while introducing a lot of younger talent who gained valuable experience through this campaign. 

Junior County Football Final, Lucan Sarsfields 0-07 St Judes 2-10. 12th Lock, 16th October 2022 Sunday

Lucan played host to Judes in a Junior 5 All County Final. The match was well contested in the first half leaving the contest open with 4pts each and all to play for. In the second half Judes made some decisive changes to the midfield that brought a 4 minute spell of disruption for Lucan who unfortunately conceded 2 goals during this period. The match was played in good spirit and well contested and the team was really appreciative of the great turnout by the home fans. This was strong season for the Junior 5s progressing to a final with a mix of Lucan legends and future stars. We were also entertained by some Lucan mini’s who delighted the fans at half time.

U12 Camogie

Over the last two rounds of camogie matches, our U12 girls took on St Judes away on 1st Oct, and Castleknock at home on 15th Oct.

Against St Judes, Sarsfields put up a very strong performance in all matches. Match 1 was a strong physical encounter with Lucan winning a few frees leading to Lucan going ahead by a score of 3 pts to 2. Unfortunately a defensive mistake allowed a very soft Judes goal roll over the line to give Judes the victory. Match 2 went the way of Judes, whilst Lucan took a good win in match 3.

Against Castleknock, once again the elements were against us with some terrible weather conditions to contend with. We were adamant that this would not stand in our way of ending the season of go games on a high. In Match 1, the Lucan girls dug the heels in after Castleknock got off to a strong start scoring 3 goals. Lucan turned the tables, and came away with a 5-2 to 3 goals win. This resulted from some very strong performances and scores from Lucan. Team 2 pulled off a very strong win scoring 8 goals, whilst team 3 unfortunately lost, despite some good scores.

The camogie go games have now come to an end but we look forward to a couple of challenges matches after Halloween.

Adam Kelly, also from Lucan, recently took charge of the Dublin Senior Camogie 2 Championship Final Replay on 9th Oct, so it's great to see our members achieving such recognition as refs now.
