U15 Footballers progress to Semi-Finals

Hazelwood College 6-9
Scoil Pol 2-1

This opening round game, played in Kilfinnane Friday morning was much more competitive than the final scoreline suggests. The victory was built on a very strong defensive display. Jack Shanaghan, Pat Curtin and Eoghan O’ Gorman were well on top in the central positions. Hazelwood were on the scoreboard early with points from Eamon Carmody and Darragh Reidy. Adam Cotter scored an opportunist goal before the home team answered back with a goal of their own. We responded well and stretched our advantage with goals from Shane O’ Riordan, Eamon Carmody and Adam Cotter.
The quality of the game improved hugely in the second half and the defenders were at their very best to withstand several promising attacks from Kilfinnane. Hazelwood found the scores easier to come by with further goals From Stephen O’ Flynn and Eamon Carmody. Edward probably had the best score of the game with a point from long range.

Hazelwood College 9-9
Colaiste Na Trocaire 2-5

Hazelwood maintained their unbeaten start to the season with a fairly comfortable victory over Rathkeale in Dromcollogher Tuesday morning. With a much-changed team from the previous game, Hazelwood took a while to get into their stride. However the Rathkeale defence was coming under pressure and conceded goals from Eamon Carmody(2) Kenny Lynch and Lee Foley. We also had points from Thomas Curran, David Boyce and Kenny Lynch. Rathkeale dominated the latter stages of the first half, scoring a goal and threatened to score another couple only to be thwarted with some excellent goalkeeping from Mark Kelly.
Hazelwood dominated the second half and found the net with regular frequency. Ciaran O’ Sullivan (3), Stephen O’ Flynn and Brendan Harding were on the end of some great moves. David Boyce kicked a superb point from 40 yards in between times.

Hazelwood Heroines Blaze Brilliantly in Basketball Battle

Hazelwood College’s Senior Ladies Basketballers, including sixth year veterans Katie McCarthy, Rachel O’Reagan and Julie and Katie O’Shea sought to end the year and in the case of the sixth years names their second level basketballing experience with a final triumph in the South West Division B Shield last Friday. Their opposition was Coláiste Nano Nagle, an experience and skilled opposition. After a slow start, Hazelwood’s determination to win became irresistible and Hazelwood’s heroines pulled of a comprehensive 48-20 point win, under the guidance of Ms Grainne Phelan and Ms Tricia Bridgeman. For the sixth years it was a final victory, before the one hoped for in June!

Tenacious Hazelwood Heroines Put Final in the Basket

Hazelwood First Year Girls’ Basketball team took to the court in UL to battle it out for the title of the South West Girls’ Final winners 2017. They were up against a tough Villiers School Limerick, side.
The girls started off well with great scores and defence and kept this intensity up throughout the match. With 3 minutes left Hazelwood were firmly in front leading 20-11 but Villiers came back to trail by only 3 points with only 20 seconds remaining. A Villiers player threw up a shot from the halfway line but the buzzer had already gone and Hazelwood had clung onto their small lead to win the South West Regional Girls’ Basketball Final
