Mount Sion GAA Club Notes
Senior Hurling Championship
Cnoc Sion 2-19
De La Salle 0-14The Seniors took on De La Salle in their first Championship game of 2021 in Walsh Park on Saturday last, Sion took first blood following good work from Alan Kirwan through the middle which saw Donal Power pounce to rattle the net in the second minute, De La Salle took control for most of the half but were never able to capitalise on that dominance and Sion were able to get within a point at the break, half time score Cnoc Sion 1-05 De La Salle 0-09, Sion notched up a gear in the second half dominating in key areas of the pitch and the result was sealed when Stephen Roche struck the ball low to the back of the net following great work down the right from John Kennedy, a very impressive performance all round which now sets up an intriguing tie with Dungarvan next week to decide who tops the group. Scorers Donal Power 1-01, Stephen Roche 1-01, Martin O’Neill 0-08, Austin Gleeson 0-03, Jamie Gleeson 0-02, Peter Penkert 0-01, Alan Kirwan 0-01, Owen Whelan 0-01, John Kennedy 0-01.
Junior A HurlingIt was a disappointing night for the Junior A team in St Saviours on Friday night last when despite a valiant fightback they were unable to overcome local rivals Roanmore, next game is Friday when they take on Kilmacthomas in St Mollerans.
Junior B HurlingThe Junior B’s took on Naomh Pol on Thursday last and as usual when playing the parish a physical encounter ensued, Sion though drawing on their mix of experience and youthful energy proved too strong in the end and ran out comfortable winners, next game in a couple of weeks.
