Naas GAA – 11/10/19

A great start with Kaitlyn Miley and Annie Roche winning first possession. This was quickly overturned by Presentation – turned into a score for 0-01.

Jenny Flood then flew it through the back of the net and Kaitlyn Miley soon popped over a lovely point which brought it to 1-1

Laura Cahill on a great attack fought vigorously and  played it to Jenny who fought tirelessly to win the sliotar. With Kaitlyn winning the throw-in she then converted another score for us, making the score line 2-1

Ella Kearney then added to the score line with a goal for Pipers Hill making it 3-1

Presentation then came on the attack and made something of it by scoring their first goal 1-1

Another beautiful point by Jenny Flood made it a score line of 3-2

Kaitlyn Miley pucked over another beautiful point to add to the score line 3-3

Presentation added to their own scoreline by putting a point over the bar.

Kaitlyn again outside the 21 meter line shot a beautiful goal  and by halftime, the score was Pipers 4-3/ Presentation 0-2


The second half of the senior match kicked off with Presentation on the attack and they created the chance and scored 0-3

After an intense few minutes, Lily Guerin drove out from the full back line as Becky drove the sliotar into Jenny Flood and Jenny left her marker in well behind her before scoring a cracking point to make the score line 4-4 

But Presentation quickly came alive again in the game by receiving a free in our 21 meter line. Laura Cahill rose to the occasion and the job at hand and cleared the ball to Ella Kearney who  hit it straight into the hand of Jenny Flood who scored well.

Kaitlyn received a perfect pass from a sideline cut taken by Katie Kelly which resulted in Kaitlyn running straight through the full back line of pres and picked a perfect point off the bar.


All in all it was a great victory for Piper’s Hill team and a huge well done to all involved!

Basketball match report


Match report by Annie Roche, TY


First Half

Colaiste Iosagain were in Purple and Piper’s Hill were Red. The Piper’s Hill players that started off were numbers 7,13,11,12 and 6. The ball was thrown in and a Colaiste Iosagain player caught it. Then the ball was thrown down to a purple and the purple scored a 2 pointer. It then started back on the Piper’s Hill half court. As number 11 and 7 brought the ball back down it got snatched back off them and was brought down to the other end of the court. A purple went to shoot and missed and a red number 6 got the rebound and brought the ball to the other end of the court and did a layup and scored. The purples brought the ball back down very quickly then and scored a 2 pointer. Along the line the purples has fouled and that gave Pipers 2 shots – number 7 Luke Owens took both shots and had number 11 Daniel Kane and number 6 Ben Kelly in for the rebound. Luke got the first one but missed the second one. Then the 1st half was done and it was time to switch around some players.


Second Half

The ball was the thrown in from the side from a purple player then was passed onto another player. As the reds tried to come back to the game, the purples were getting frustrated by the amount of baskets that the reds had gotten back. By then,  the score was  27/31. Piper’s were starting to come back to the game more and more as number 11 Daniel Kane got 2 shots and scored 1. The game then continued intense and fast. The ball was up and down within seconds before was the time out and number 21 red came on and number 12 came off. It was the last quarter and the score was 34/34- nail biting stuff! Player 12 came back on and scored a basket as the reds tried and tried the purples started to push away. The last basket was scored by a purple and the finally score was 34/43.


Well done to Piper’s Hill on the first match of the new season and congratulations to  Colaiste Iosagain!

Throw Up- 11am

Luke Byrne (2 Errigal) was the captain for our first match this season. Mr. Dillon’s side brought plenty of numbers, with 4 subs ready to come on when needed.

The first five minutes of the game was dull but the first score came quickly with a goal for St Conlons.
It took 15 minutes for Piper’s to score and it was a free from 15 yards out that went over the bar from Luke Byrne.
Just 2 minutes after, half forward Sean Cook scored a wonder goal for Pipers, with 30 minutes gone, Alex Duddy fisted the ball over the keeper to put the game level.

Going in at half time, Piper’s were down by one with a fluke goal for St Conlans that bounced off the Piper’s defender.

Still, there was nothing but compliments and positive messages from the gaffer, Mr Dillon, at the half time team talk!

For the second half, there were three changes for Mr Dillon’s side as he gave other players the opportunity to take to the pitch, determined to win the game.

Full forward Mikey Coffee scored the point of the match on his left foot to put the sides back level.
Just 5 minutes later, Cook put in his second goal of the game.

A great one-two from Luke to Alex secured the score and put Piper’s into a comfortable lead.
The substitute Sultan Ajibola fired another goal in the back of then net.
Mikey put two goals in in less than a minute and Piper’s continued to keep St Conlans in their own half with scores coming from all angles.

Man of the match goes to Piper’s half back and newcomer Timofe Oke who played a blinder, not giving Conlans half forwards a look in at all.

Honorable mentions-

Mikey Coffee with 5 goals to help seal the win for Piper’s and the goal keeper Kamsy Alex-Ichu pulled off some brilliant saves.

It was a superb performance from the whole team to wrap up the first win of the season despite the side not yet kicking off their training season. More success surely to come!
