Munster Hurling Semi Final.

St Augustine’s College 0 -14

Salesion College Pallaskenry 1 -14

 

The Friary made their exit from this year’s Munster Championship after just coming up short against a sharper and more physical Pallaskenry side in Cashel on Wednesday last. A slow start effectively caught us in the end and while our second half showing was hugely improved, the Limerick side just about did enough to shade it on the day.

Pallaskenry went into an early four point lead and their inside forwards seemed very dangerous whenever in possession. The Friary forwards on the other hand were find things tough and all we had to show for the first half were four Stephen Cliffe frees. The St Augustine’s defence while at times were stretched, eventually got to grips with their men and performed heroically to keep the Limerick side at bay when under huge pressure. Constant fouling did not help our cause however and the Salesion school went in 9 – 4 up at the break.

The Friary side was much changed in the second half as Conor Prunty came out to centre back and Jack Mullaney pushed onto midfield. This made a big difference to the dynamics of the team, as did the introduction of Jack Duggan at centre forward. The Friary boys started eating into the lead straight away and points from Cliffe, Eoin Conway, Jack Duggan and Dylan Guiry eventually saw us get back to level terms with minutes remaining. Joe Allan and Guiry both went close with goal efforts but just as it seemed we might snatch it, Pallaskenry hit the sucker punch. A long ball deceived our backline and while Laurence Power did well to parry the first effort, he could not prevent the rebound from hitting the net. One last attack yielded a point for the Abbeyside school but it was not to be our day and Pallaskenry go on to contest the Munster final V Scariff CS.

This was probably one that got away but looking to the future, ten of the side that started are available next year so I’m sure it is only a matter of time until the Friary reclaim a Munster title.

The focus now turns to the senior football where there is a Munster and All Ireland crown to be defended. The Munster quarter final takes place next Wednesday 22ndJanuary V Hazelwood College.
