Golden Goal St Ita's

A great day of hurling finished with an extra time 'golden goal' winner for St Ita's!


St. Ita's hurlers travelled to Corrigan Park, the home of St. John's GAC to take part in the Cumann na mBunscol ground hurling blitz last week. The boys were a credit to themselves and played excellently well throughout the day. They won 4 out of their 5 matches which qualified them for the final against the only team that had beaten them. The final was a tense affair, with nothing separating the sides when the whistle sounded to end the game so an extra two minutes was added on. There was stalemate again after this so the game went to 'golden goal' to determine the winner. A super strike from Peadar flew past the keeper and signalled the final whistle. There was elation following the whistle as the boys collected the trophy and their medals.
