Clara GAA Notes 26/07/10

Peter Sheridan, Clara GAA PRO


U14 Hurling- Congratulations to the Clara U14 Hurlers on qualifying for the 2010 county final. Clara played Drumcullen in Mucklagh last Monday evening the 26th of July. Anyone at the match will agree this team has what it takes to bring the U14H title back to Clara once again. Clara were up for the game and the final scoreline of 4-8 to 1-9 does not do justice to a very skilful Drumcullen side as Clara scored 2 fortuitous goals in the last 10 minutes after the Drumcullen goalie picked up an injury. Both teams played some tough but skilful hurling and provided a very entertaining game for those who were present at the match. But in the end it was Clara who pulled away and gained a place in the county final against CRC Gaels. Clara Panel: Darren Fleming, Ryan Kelly, Leon Egan, Luke Dignam, Carl Stewart, Niall Keenan, Colm Doyle, David Newman, Donal Recks, Martin Fleming, Stephen Buckley, Adam Dolan, Mark Fallon, Seamus O’Brien, Denis Hackett, Kevin O’Meara, Jonathan Hanamy, Callum Egan,  Josh Fleming, Dylan O’Keefe, Dermot Doolin. Congrats to the mentors, players and supporters on reaching Clara’s first final of 2010.

Clara v St Broughan’s Mon 19th July 2010 in Pairc Bride Clara.

Clara played St Broughan’s in what was to be a must win game for the aforementioned if they were to progress to the semi-final stages of the championship. Clara started brightly and an early goal settled them down. After 20 minutes the game was all but over as Clara led by 3-6 to 0-1 and they just pushed on from there to win on a scoreline of 8-13 to 1-8. The overall performance was a hardworking one but there were patches in the game when Clara went to sleep. They will have to play for a full 60 minutes against the stronger teams that make the latter stages if they are to come out on top, taking nothing away from a very spirited St Broughan’s side who never gave up. Best for Clara were Darren Fleming (2-3) Mark Fallon (3-2) Adam Dolan (0-3). And there were strong performances from Niall Keenan, David Newman, Luke Dignam, Colm Doyle and Leon Egan. Scorers Clara – Mark Fallon 3-2 Darren Fleming  2-3, Kevin o Meara 1-1, Luke Dignam 1-1, Seamus o Brien 1-0, Adam Dolan 0-3,Stephen Buckley 0-1, Leon Egan 0-1 and John Hanamy 0-1.
