U13 Hurling Championship: The Dunnamaggin U13 hurlers contested the first round of their championship in Larchfield on Tuesday evening last against Clara. Both sides settled to their task early and attacked the game with great intensity and vigour. Both sides exchanged early points before Dunnamaggin nugged in front through points from Cathal Walsh (F) and Tim Doherty. Clara however were finding their form and attacking at every chance. Goalie Sean Rossiter pulled off some super saves together with some great full back play from John Hayes, Mark MacEneaney and Gavin McMahon starved Clara of any goal. As the game grew in intensity scores became harder to find. The accuracy of Cathal Walsh from the place ball kept Dunnamaggin in front as Clara closed the gap. As the game headed for half time so did a break for Dunnamaggin when Killian Tallon's shot was excellenty saved only for Tim Doherty to hit the net with the rebound. This deservedly put Dunnamaggin in front after a super effort. Half Time score was: Dunnamaggin 1:05 Clara 0:5. The Second half saw Clara level the score board quickly with some well taken points. This settled them and they continued to press the Dunnamaggin goal line which was eventually breached midway through the half. Cathal Walsh continued to be accurate with the frees but the Dunnamaggin lads were tiring after the tremendous effort they had put in in the first half to get infront. Clara kept picking off their points as the game wore on and despite the huge effort from of this very young Dunnamaggin team Clara ran out winners to progress to the 1/4 final of the competition. Panel: Sean Rossiter, Gavin McMahon, John Hayes, Mark MacEneaney, William Browne, Cathal Walsh, Ross O'Neill, Cathal Buckley, Noah Gilmore, Ciaran Hickey, Eoin Shiel, Pierce Costello, Sean Lawton, Killian Tallon, Tim Doherty, Aidan Ryan, Jamie Tallon, Shay Delaney, Tommy Steed, Charlie Nesbitt, David Moore, Conor Lawton.
