August 31st may well be the last day of summer, but another beautiful day in summer 2013 in Wexford was complimented by another great day of underage hurling when some of the finest U11 teams in Ireland took part in a very competitive Blitz in perfect conditions at the Pitch.
Ballyboden and Kilmacud from Dublin, Midleton from Cork, Mt Sion from Waterford, Dicksboro and Thomastown from Kilkenny, along with ourselves and our great rivals Gorey made the trip to Piercestown - and all went away enthused with the quality of hurling on show.
Great credit is due to all who helped out on the day (too many to mention) - from catering, health & safety, time keeping & pitch organisation to refereeing, (especially the guest umpires - the U12 boys who turned up to help out and support the younger chaps & the U14 girls who assisted in every way too)  it all went off extremely well off the pitch, while on the pitch the boys were giving their all.

While the lads found themselves in the'group of death' with Midleton, Ballyboden and Dicksboro they ended the day with two wins and two defeats, with wins over Ballyboden and in their final game against Thomastown going a long way to compensating for the narrow enough defeats to the Magpies and the 'boro.

Well done to Kilmacud Crokes who won all 4 of their games, beating Midleton in the Final game 2-2 to 1-4.
