After a long break the Under 21 Hurling Championship finally got underway on Saturday last against Roanmore in a windy De La Salle Gracedieu, Roanmore got off the better start with a couple of points before Mikey Daykin got Sion’s first with a point from play, it was even from then on with Austin getting the bulk of Sion’s points from frees to leave the score at 10 points to 9 in Roanmore’s favour. In the second half it was a different story with Roanmore racing ahead with unanswered points to leave an insurmountable gap which Sion were unable to bridge and the game ended up 22 points to 12 in their favour, hard luck to our young team many of whom will be back playing at this grade next year.
Our Under 9s played Abbeyside on Saturday morning and it was a great performance from the lads against very tough opposition, stand out performances from Lee Flanagan , Davin Marshall , Dillon Ryan and Alex Walsh helped us to a 4 – 5 – 3 – 1 win . The panel for the day was Jack Barrett, Shane Ryan, Alex Walsh, Dillon Ryan, Jared O”Keeffe, Conor Walsh, Davin Marshall, Lee Flanagan, Killian Dundon, Adam Regan, Jake Marks, Adam Cummins, Ross Byrne and Cameron O’Neill
