U /16 Hurling League Premier 1. Blackrock 6-9 v Na Piarsaig 1-16 @ Mahon Pitch.
Report By: Brendan Cunningham.
On Tuesday evening April 8th in Mahon, our u16s had a deserved win over their arch city rivals Na Piarsaigh in their first competitive match of the season. They got off to the perfect start with a point from Tadgh Deasy, followed by two well taken goals from corner forward Mark Cunningham.
When it looked like Na Piarsaigh were getting into the game, with 4 points from their best player, Daniel Gunning, and a well taken point by Calvin Forde, the Blackrock mid-field of John O’Sullivan and Sean O’Callaghan took over, delivering quality ball to their forwards, leading to goals from Tadgh Deasy (who ended up with (3-1) to his name), and points from all the other forwards, Tom Linehan, Rodhrai Crowley, Euan Crowe and David Carroll.
