Mount Sion GAA Club Notes
Under 10 TournamentOur Under 10’s have played in a lot of tournaments in 2015 and therefore it was only fitting that we hosted our own one to finish off the year. Dungarvan, St Mary’s Clonmel and Naas provided the opposition on the day when all four teams lined out in blue and white !First up for the Mount Sion boys was Dungarvan where the lads went down to an early goal but came back very strongly to win on a scoreline of 9-7 to 1-0 producing great scores from all over the field . Next up was a strong Naas team and in a very tight game with great scores from both sides Sion ended out winners on a scoreline of 2-5 to 2-2 . Our last game of the day was against St Marys Clonmel which proved to be our toughest of the day and in a very physical game the lads battled to a hard earned draw 3-5 to 4-2 . All in all a great morning of hurling was had and the club as usual put on a great day for our visitors. Panel for the day was Jack Barrett, Alex Walsh, Ross Byrne, Dylan Ryan, Cormac Dunphy, Lee Flanagan, Davin Marshall, Conor Walsh, Jake Marks, Adam Regan, Jack Kirwan, Jared O Keeffe ,Jack O’Grady, Adam Cummins and Emmanuell Adebayo.
