Juvenile GAA

Bruree U13 Hurling versus Monagea in Monagea on Wednesday 28th July
On Wednesday last our U13 hurlers travelled to Monagea to play the last of the hurling league games. Monagea had a great start to the game and were on top in all areas of the field. Their fast direct style had the Bruree defence under constant pressure and Sean Quirke in goals was our busiest player in the first half. A succession of well taken scores from Monagea left us facing an uphill task in the second half. Sam Cronnolly came on as sub goalie and played well. His brother Tommy had the better of his man in the half back line as Bruree started to play with more spirit and determination. Brian McCarthy got through an amount of work and was rewarded with a well taken point. Up front Sean Quirke had the Monagea defence under pressure and he took some fine scores. Cathal Barrington worked very hard and constantly took his man on. Shane Hannon was rewarded for his hard work with a goal and Ciaran Sexton worked very hard throughout. However Monagea were much the better side on the night and deserved their win.
Our next scheduled game in the Hurling competition is the 24th August which will be the quarter final.
