Dublin U17 Hurling 2018


#264

Dara Purcell is exceptional. A year young but hopefully he shows it tomorrow .


#265

Anyone at the game?


#266

1-3 to 0-4 up


#267

thanks


#268

(1st half, 24min) Dublin 2-5 (11) Kilkenny 2-8 (14)


#269

is it as close as the scoreline suggests?


#270

Dublin 2-7 KK 2-10 h/t. Anyone at it?


#271

Our full forward has a good hand- if we let it in to him early. Half forwards caught one puck out, in the fifth minute or so, and none since. Referee is from Wexford and is not great.


#272

Is that Luke Swan ?


#273

Yes. Our half forwards are actually batting down puckouts as if they were half backs. We would do with a bit of variety on the puckouts.


#274

We’re throwing this away having got back into it. Simple free app n front of posts 30m out - complete mishit rolled along the ground

Still in it but have to take our chances.


#275

Twitter going crazy with updates on scores - It’s a shootout !


#276

7 down with time just up. Baffling stuff.


#277

There must be positives . . . Forwards well able to take scores ?!


#278

All square with 3 mins left. List by 8. Go figure!


#279

It’s a pity, but still a decent Dublin team. With 10 minutes to go they could, and probably should have won it. But a few mistakes in the last 10 caused a lot of damage.

But there is goals in this team, unlike a lot of minor teams in the past. So they will do ok.


#280

No. 12 points will not win you a hurlong match.


#281

First game ever at this grade. This game surely will bring them on ?


#282

Heard this kk team is pick of whats out there. Remember there still only 17. Mistakes will be made but 4 goals is a positive


#283

Was talking to a few kk lads after minor game. They’re highly thought of down there.
Think we should have taken points instead of always going for goal. Thought swan was very dangerous. Had a good game. After a dodgy start I thought 6 had a good game too. Not a bad Dublin team. A few good U16 s there too.
