Glinsk fielded their first school hurling team at Ballygar pitch last week in a competition organised for schools that are new to hurling competitions. It was a mixed team of pupils from 1st to 5th class. Our first match was against Ardeevin N.S./ Lisheen N.S. which they won easily. Next up we played Williamstown N.S. and although we got an early lead from well taken scores, Williamstown came back into the match.
Glinsk played very skillfully and were tough when they needed to be and were unlucky to have a few attempts to score further goals saved by a great goalie on the Williamstown side. At one stage there was only a goal in it, but Glinsk added on a few points and another goal to win by 9 points in the end.
They have qualified for the 7 a-side hurling county final in Roinn P on Thursday 14th of June and are very excited about the match. Well done girls & boys! Take a look at some photos from the day below.
