U16s hit form

By Staff Reporter
Bredagh 10-10 -- Castlewellan 1-03

Bredagh’s U16 hurlers entertained Castlewellan at Cherryvale on Sunday evening and despite fielding without several regulars, recorded a facile win in blustery conditions.

Every starting Bredagh forward got on the scoresheet with Tiernan Curran in devastating form again, contributing a massive 4-2.

Ronan Quinn grabbed a hat-trick of goals and is another Bredagh player starting to find form.

Sean Blaney and Niall Smyth shared the goalkeeper duties in the absence of exam-tied Stephen Young, both ably deputising and acquitting themselves well.

Kaelan Power had a solid hour in an unaccustomed centre back berth with captain Mark Patterson also sitting this game out to concentrate on the books.

Chris Ferry went into centre field and along with his partners, Niall Smyth and later Odhran Devlin, performed admirably.

Conor Costello added 1-4 to the scoreboard, the powerful centre half forward too big a handful for his opposite number. Damien Hanrahan chalked up two fine points and his all round team play was impressive.

Michael Browne showed well when introduced to the attack in the second period.

The defence had little to do but Rory Collins was stout hearted when called upon to clear his lines. Faolan McCambridge-Geraghty continues to improve with every game and Aaron Smyth did all that was asked of him.

Bredagh’s first touch is getting better, their fitness is improving and this all augers well for the rest of the season.

 

Bredagh: Sean Blaney (1-0), Rory Collins, Michael Browne, Faolan McCambridge-Geraghty, Kaelan Power, Aaron Smyth, Chris Ferry, Niall Smyth (0-1), Odhran Devlin (1-0), Conor Costello (1-4), Damien Hanrahan (0-2), Tiernan Curran (4-2), Ronan Quinn (3-1), Declan McCartney, Andy Harney, Christy Carlin.
