Under 16 League, played at Church Road, Wednesday 26th April.
Blackrock 4 --- 10 Mayfield 1 --- 8.
Following a blistering start, the Rockies led by 3 --- 3 to 0 --- 1 after 10 minutes, however a plucky Mayfield outfit matched Blackrock score for score for the remaining 50 minutes. Early goals from Brian Lyons, David Healy and Pat Deasy built up a good lead for Blackrock. Eoin O'Farrell was again in fine form and added three well struck points. Paul Bennett and Conor Kilcoyne completed the scoring to leave the half time score at 3 --- 5 to 1 --- 4. Craig Gillis took his goal well for Mayfield
An early goal from Conor Kilcoyne increased the Rocky lead in the second half. A series of good saves from the excellent Mayfield keeper Darren Wyse ensured a tough hard fought match in this half. Richard Dineen put his name on the score sheet along with Paul Bennett. Darren Griffin produced the score of the match when he rounded his man and cut in from the wing to score a beautiful point from an impossible angle. Eoin O'Farrell and Simon Zebo completed the scoring.
For this young Mayfield team, Daniel O'Gorman, Stephen Crowley and Robert Mullane excelled. For the Rockies Simon Zebo is developing into a fine hurler, while a very committed Eoghan Buckley cut through the Mayfield defence at will. Elliot Cantwell and Mark Ryan can also be pleased with their performances.
