St Mel’s Win in 1st Year Hurling Championship

First Year Hurling Quarter Final
After comprehensively winning their group, our first year hurlers recorded a magnificent win in the Leinster quarter final against our famous old foe St Patrick’s College Navan. Although a different code this fierce rivalry was still alive and well, with an abundance of excitement as Mel’s gained supremacy in the closing stages of the encounter.

It was tit for tat the whole way through the first half as Pats put 2-1 on the board through rather fortuitous fashion. Where a mix up in the Mel’s defence to lead to the goals. But with Matthew Flynn in the centre of the park and Ali Iqubal at centre back Mel’s had to the armoury to overcome anything Pats could offer.

Johnathon Burke and Ronan Courtney menacing in the forward line Pats had no answer. Flynn’s free taking was exceptional along with an exquisite finish to rattle the net after a famous solo run; Mel’s were firmly in the driving seat.

Although Mel’s controlled majority of the possession in the second half the score line didn’t necessarily reflect. Final whistle came in the St Mel’s College grounds on a score line 2-06 to 2-04 in favour of the boys in blue. This team now look forward to see who they play in the Leinster semi-final.

Well done to the panel and their coaches Mr Garvey and Mr Sheridan
