U13 boys played their first match of the year tonight and also their first 15 a side game on a full pitch. The opponents were Stars of Erin. It was a different format than usual with the teams playing 2 15 minute halves of both football and hurling. We started with the hurling and the Westmanstown lads quickly took control and the full forward line reaped the benefits. The lads never let up and ran out winners 5-3 to 1-0.
Then we moved to football a much closer affair however our use of space and quick transfer of the ball from the backs to the forwards was the telling factor. Pressure on the Stars kick out lead to 2 early goals which really decided the game final score WMT 3-1 Stars of Erin 0-1
