This week’s hurling game brought a battle for first place, the defending winter league champions against the summer league champions. Both squads were missing notable players, such as, Rouge’s Liam Twomey, Emily Jibb and Damo (No one can spell my surname Conelelelylee??!!!). The Cu’s were missing, Marty (Don’t touch my back) Lawless and Kieran Murphy.
From the moment the ball was thrown in, both teams were fast to try and put their mark on this game. Offensively, the workload was split among various players; Erin Hynes scored her first career goal for the Rouge. Paul Doherty continued his scoring ways scoring a goal in his 2nd game for the Cu’s. The most notable defensive moment came from Vanessa Chaton putting her body on the line to block Dave Keane’s shot; a big thump was heard echoing in the dome, followed by a slow walk back to her team’s bench. Caitlin Brennan was quick to put her mark in this game as she was seen holding down the fort defensively on numerous occasions, nothing was getting by her stingy style of play.
At half time, Alan Baxter and Jim Foley were seen comparing their beards. We are not sure what was said, but we did catch this bit from Jim “Beards are popular, so popular they can make the Kardashians jealous, and you certainly have the Cadillac of beards Alan!“
In the 2nd half, the usual suspects made the difference. Rouge’s Tony (El President) Cunningham and the Anthery Antelope Ronan Corbett were seen knocking many points over the bar (0-10 and 1-6 respectively). Not to be outdone, Tom Dayon made sure to score a goal for his team as well, finishing the night at (1-3). We are not too sure what else happened in the second half as we were busy swiping on tinder hoping to match with the Sligo man Neil O’Brien. Instead we got 70 year old Mary from the local Supermac’s.
In the end, the Rouge’s powerhouse pulled through, if the Cu’s full line-up would have shown up, this score might have been a different story (2-11 Cu’s vs 2-23 Rouge).
At press conference. It was declared Ireland will be sending an Ice Hurling team to the Olympics. We are not sure which country will be represented or if Ireland can skate, but rest assured Ireland should win gold!
