U13s v Whitehall, 26 Sept 2009
U13 Division 1 (top 5) Hurling: Kilmacud Crokes v Whitehall 26th September, 2009
In the overcast but dry umbrella of Deerpark, this U13 clash of the ash, although filled with the promise of a “top 5” encounter, proved to be a little disappointing for Kilmacud Crokes. At the same time, although finishing four points in arrears, our side demonstrated their capacity to win this contest in future. Despite a below-par display we were winning this match with fifteen minutes to go. Our backs were stalwart in defence throughout but they just had to deal with too much ball over the course of the game. The conversion rate of our forwards, which is generally prolific, wasn’t enough on the day and a few rather fortuitous goals for Whitehall at the end of the match sent the Northside Horde into wild celebrations of a famous victory… and on our turf!! Let’s not allow this to become a trend. The final score: Kilamcud Crokes 3-9, Whitehall 2-13. Enjoy the pictures anyway!
