HS Club Hurling Team of the week
14 July 2017
Ratoath caused the first major shock of the year.
Round three is over and already the big hitters are moving into place for a position in the knock out stages.
Massive wins for last year's finalists Kiltale and Killyon while Ratoath caused the first real shock of the season at Lomans Park. Here is our best XV.
1 Shane McGann Kiltale: On what was a quiet evening for the Meath number 1 McGann was called into action midway through the second half with an outstanding save from a Shane Whitty penalty.
2 Ciaran O'Rourke Trim: Had to be on top of his game against a very determined Clann na nGael attack especially in the second half at a well appointed Kildalkey.
3 Brian Murphy Ratoath: A very commanding display from the Number 3. His blocking and hassling were one of the key reasons to Ratoath's maiden senior hurling championship win.
4 Ryan Andrews Trim: Cleared attacks time and time again. One of the main reason Clann Na nGael never got the goal they so badly needed at Kildalkey.
5 Aaron Ennis Clann Na nGael: Outstanding in the half back line for the Athboy Rathcain combination. His two points were the highlights of that close Sunday clash with Trim at Kildalkey
6 Darragh Kelly Ratoath: Immense from the centre back position. One of the best strikers of the ball on the Meath club circuit. Scored seven points in that memorable win over Longwood.
7 Caoimhin King Drumree: The rock on which many a Kilskyre Moylagh attack perished on as Drumree got back on track with their second win of the Intermediate campaign.
8 Steven Clynch Kilmessan: Once again the play maker for the 2013 Jubilee Cup winners. The county ace chipped in with five points in that late, late loss to Dunboyne.
9 Sean Heavey Kildalkey: Scored ten points and gave Boardsmill numerous problems in that seven point win on the Thursday night throw in at Longwood.
10 Sean Quigley Dunboyne: Not for the first time this season has the Meath hurler come to his club's rescue. Scored 2-6 with his two goals coming late in the game to seal a dramatic win over Kilmessan at Ratoath.
11 Mark Slevin Na Fianna: The centre forward notched a goal and three as the Baconstown Enfield combination maintained their 100% record in the Intermediate championship
12 Mikey Mullen Killyon: The Meath minor, who is enjoying a very productive first season at senior level helped himself to 2-12 in that easy win over Dunderry at Athboy.
13 Gavin McGowan Ratoath: Man of the Match in that win over Longwood. Some fantastic scores in his nine point tally at Lomans Park.
14 Anthony Healy Longwood: Was the one player that stood up to a very stubborn Ratoath defence. Very accurate from frees and top scored with 13 points out of his sides twenty point tally.
15 Jack Regan Kiltale: The holders, and four in a row chasing's top scorer was at it again with 1-11 in that very easy win over Blackhall Gaels at Ashbourne
