Under 16 League.
Played at St.Vincents Tuesday 18th April.
Blackrock 1 --- 9 St. Vincents 2 --- 6.
This was a very even contest with some excellent hurling from both sides. Following several early points from the Rockies, Vincent's came back strongly and two opportunistic goals from Paul Engels allowed the northsiders to lead comfortably at half time by 2 --- 4 to 0 --- 5.
Blackrock were very dependant on good displays from Eoin O'Farrell, who finished with 4 points to his credit, Eoghan Buckley and Simon Zebo. Vincent's failure to convert their chances almost led to their eventual downfall as they managed only two points in the second half.
The Rockies were four points down with two minutes left. Simon Zebo pointed from a free and then scored a brilliant goal with a thundering shot from all of the 35 meters. A truly spectacular goal!
