Minor Hurling

(Oldest Posts First)

Great Minor Hurling final yesterday. Thought both sides gave a display of commitment and skill. Disappointed with the draw when I thought we had it won. Congratulations and admiration for the young Carnew player who stood up and pointed a 70 mtr free with the last ball of the game. Hope we can get over this and win the replay.
The year of the draw.

What is other peoples opinion of the game

Fair play to the lad that hit the late free. He had scored two unbelievable scores in the first half from puck outs. An enjoyable game played in the usual November dreary conditions. Draw a fair result. Carnew had a great second half and I thought that goal before half time would be the decider. Look forward to the replay.

I am hearing a totally different story that Bray were railroaded and that the referee played 5mins extra time -----

I was not at the game and was told this. Can anyone say one way or other is this the facts.

There was 3 min inj time played.
28 mins gone in the 2nd half it was announced there would be at least 3 additional mins at then end of normal time.
Many supporters assumed that normal time was up then. But only 28 mins had been played by then.
Therefore some supporters assumed (incorrectly) there was 5 played.
2 umpires and the Ref had 33 mins on 3 differeent watches!

Thanks for clearing that up Wicklowrunner. I was told last night by a Bray man and to be honest i never heard of them losing or drawing a game that it was not some others fault. Referee is usually the soft option.

Wicklow Wicklow runner
Do you not think it is agsinst
Best practice to have the same
Ref out this week again.
Even if he had a good game last
Week .
I am working with a retired ref
From dublin who says no ref should
Do a replay under any circumstances.

I don't thing there's any issue with it. I believe the rule was changed at Central Council because the ref blew the initial game up 5 mins early (along time ago).

I reffed the LGFA Leinster Minor Semi and replay this year - none of the teams had an issue with it and both games were great to be involved in.

Bray were 1 pt up with about 10 min left. They got a free 30m out, but they dissented with the ref and they lost the free. If they had scored they would have probably won! Only themselves to blame!

The referee played 3minutes additional time???? where did this time come from. The free for Carnew should have been given the other way as the Bray player was fouled. Fair play to the young lad who scored but we were robbed.
I do not think it is fair that the same referee will do the replay there is plenty of others to do it and they should be given the game

Wasn't the ref, but I can assume for 4 yellow cards, no 14 injured, Maor Uisce Bray dissent/Bray Player dissent.
You're very petty saying you were robbed (but you're entitled to your opinion). Bray better team in 1st half, Carnew
in 2nd. Bray robbed themselves by dissenting when they could have went 2 points up. Maybe teach the players to show
respect and you'll win games!

Best of Luck to both teams! I hope it's exciting as the Minor Football Replay.
PS I've got new batteries for Eddie's watch :-)

Is the Dunne Cup for the Top 4 teams in Division 1?
Winning Leage games gets them to the semi final.

Think Baltingalss will win Dunne Cup.

Well done to the men of Bray Emmets who are Wicklow Minor Hurling Champions 2013. Carnew won the corresponding Under 16 Championship two years ago but our lads worked hard on their game and came back not only physically stronger but mentally stronger. What a team.
