Right away on Friday, the Hurling Club of Madison established some dominance on the field defeating two clubs, the Twin Cities Robert Emmets and the Denver Gaels. On Saturday afternoon, the Hurling Club of Madison moved onto the semifinal match against the Pittsburgh Pucas. It was an extremely competitive match, but in the end the Hurling Club of Madison won the day by four points.
On Finals Sunday, the Hurling Club of Madison played an early match against our friends in the Milwaukee Hurling Club. It was a hard-fought, back and forth match the entire time. At the end of regulation, the score was 2-10 to 2-10 leading us to extra time (two 10 minute halves). Despite its best effort, the Hurling Club of Madison was defeated by four points, 2-16 to 2-12.
The overall experience and trip was a success for this small club. The Hurling Club of Madison definitely put themselves on the map as far as Junior C hurling goes in the country.
It's time to take the success the club had in Cleveland into this year's Midwest Hurling Tournament coming up on Saturday, September 14, 2013. The Hurling Club of Madison hopes to see you there!
