The first round of the Cumann na mBunscol Indoor Hurling took place in the Tennis Club on Monday Jan.30th. Our boys and girls played two matches each, against the Gaelscoil and Strandhill NS.
The boys had a great win over Strandhill, and were unlucky to come up against a very strong team from the Gaelscoil, (most of whom contested the County Final last year). Having acquitted themselves well, they finished second, but unfortunately this wasn’t enough to progress to the next round.
The girls began the day with a 2-1 win over the Gaelscoil, which set them up for a winner-take-all final match against Strandhill. Despite going behind the girls rallied well and equalised early in the second half, setting up a frantic last five minutes. It was a very exciting match, and Rathcormac won with the very last poc of the match, ensuring their progress to the next round.
