U19 Hurlers through to Leinster Quarter Final

January 13, 2023

Well done to the Under 19 Hurling Team who are through to the next round of the Leinster Championship after beating St. Benildus on Thursday with a scoreline of 2-13 to 1-10.

The game started slowly, with the wind making scoring difficult for both sides, leaving the score at 4 points to 2 in Ardscoil’s favour after 15 minutes. Benildus were looking strong, and by half time they led 0-6 to 0-5. This was with a crossfield wind at their back however, and once the teams switched around Ardscoil were able to reply with a flurry of points, giving themselves a strong lead.

The opposition were not going to give up despite this, and a goal and a point in quick succession put the teams back level. Our team struck back quickly after this, with C. Stacey scoring a crucial goal to widen the lead again. The team finished the game strongly by scoring several points before C. Cummins capped off the game by finishing a late chance for a goal.

This left the final scoreline as a comfortable six point win.

We wish the best of luck to the team as they move on to play Colaiste Naomh Chormac, Co. Offaly next week.
