Post date: Mar 12, 2015 7:33:37 PM

2014 saw Moycullen's u13 team cement their place in the upper divisions of galway hurling.

Our year started on 26 may with a hard fought win against liam mellows 3-10 to 1-10 followed three days later by a great battling win against kilconieron 3-5 to 2-3.We had our first defeat to meelick eyrecourt on june 5 on one of those nights when everything seems to go wrong.

Next up was ardrahan on june 12 when for different reasons we had a total on 9 players missing from our squad but on the night we gave it everything eventually going down by 2-2 to 2-9.

We got back to winning ways on june 23 with a comprehensive win over loughrea 6-5 to 0-4

Next we welcomed Sarsfields to Moycullen on july 7 and again we gave it everything , despite being level at half time we came out the wrong side of a 3-2 to 4-8 scoreline.

Our last game in the group saw us eventually playing killimordaly on june 15 , our lads hurled like men with a point to prove and boy did they prove it ,winning 3-3 to 1-8

These results left us in a cup semi-final against ardrahan on august 23 in kenny park.The 5 selectors , with over 150 yrs gaa experience between them had some selection headaches that morning eventually settling on a starting 15.To say we hurled well that day would be a big understatement ,going in front for long spells and with the dreaded two point lead in the dying minutes ardrahan eventually breeched our defences with a heartbreaking goal to end our dreams.

The management were very proud of how our lads conducted themselves all year and are hopeful of a great 2015.
