Sat. Aug. 2nd. J.H.C.(A) Q/F. Blackrock 1 - 16 V Bishopstown 0 - 09.@ Ballinlough @ 7.30pm.

Our Junior A Hurlers had a convincing win over a strong Bishopstown team in the quarter - final of the championship at Ballinlough this evening and now go on to play St. Finbarrs in the
semi-final at a date yet to be fixed. Playing against the wind in the first half, Ryan Dineen soon had us on the scoreboard with a fine point from play. Sean Murphy followed this with a long range point and Ryan Dineen then added his second point. Bishopstown then came back strongly and starting tacking on the points before we scored our goal, which brought us back into the game. Following a mellee close to goal, David O'Shea was on hand to blast the ball to the back of the net. Bishopstown also came close to scoring a goal when they were denied a point blank shot by Paul Delaney. David O'Shea pointed a free and Alan Nolan closed out the first half with a point from play.

Thur. July 24th. U/16 H.C. P.1. Q/F. Blackrock 3 - 16 V Midleton 3 - 14 @ Carrigtwohill.

When we arrived at the venue in Carrigtwohill this evening, the pitch was bathed in sunshine, so imagine our surprise when we were advised that the game would be 20 minutes late in starting due to the fact that the referee's car had stalled in a flood near Ballincollig. Thankfully he was able to borrow a car and the game went ahead shortly before 8 o'clock.
And what a game it turned out to be. This was one of the most exciting and skilfull games ever played at this age level and full credit must go to both teams for putting on such a wonderful display of our national game of hurling. This was end to end stuff with no quarter asked or given, and not a dirty stroke throughout the game. Hopefully most of these young boys will continue hurling and we will see them starring at adult level in the future.
