Our under 16s are giving us full value for their registration fee this year playing two finals in the space of three days.

First up was the county A hurling final against Aghabullogue in Cloughdubh last Friday evening. It was the Coachford boys who settled faster and scored two early goals to lead by 2-0 to 0-1 after ten minutes. However our lads stormed back into the game to draw level at half time 2-3 to 0-9.

In the second half we continued to pile on the pressure scoring some fantastic points to lead by three points with time almost up. Aghabullogue never gave up and managed to score four late pointed frees to run out winners 2-11 to 0-16.

This was a heart-breaking defeat but our lads can be proud of their part in a fantastic game played in a very sporting fashion.
