Fenians In The News:
The Junior B Hurling championship also got off the ground with the opening game between Providence and Worcester. Worcester earned the 2 points with some solid performances from Sean O’Shaughnessy, Tom Lind, Conor Greene, and a few clips of magic from the hurl of Jerry O’Connor. Some nicely taken scores from Austen Clark frees and a couple from play filled the Providence column, but the Worcester sharpshooters were too much for the men from down I-95. A second half goal from Clark would not be enough to eat into the Worcester lead as Andrew Engel and PJ Heffernan also netted for Worcester. Final score, Worcester 2-24 Providence 1-8.
Worcester Fenians captured the first Junior B Hurling championship in the Northeast division after a hard hitting, exciting game against old rivals, the New Hampshire Wolves. Worcester got some great performances from several of their number, none more so than center forward, Conor Greene. Greene accounted for all 3 goals and a number of well taken points to steer his side to the win.
High flying Providence suffered their first defeat of the season falling on the road to Hartford by a score of 3-16 to 3-12 but still sit on top of the table with 3 wins from 4, while the newly formed Worcester football team scored a win over Portland on Saturday after narrowly falling to Sean Og’s during the week in a makeup game.
WORCESTER – The Worcester Fenians Hurling Club just may be the city’s best-kept secret.
Founded in 2009 by Dan Donahue and Paul Curley, the Fenians – members of the United States Gaelic Athletic Association (USGAA) – are the defending Northeast Junior C Division champions, a title they also won in 2013 and 2014.
In 2014 in fact, the Fenians went on to win the USGAA National Championship, defeating the St. Louis Gaelic Athletic Club, the title match being played in Canton.
The Albany Rebels lost to the Worcester Fenians 7-8 (29 points) to 3-6 (15 points) in an exhibition on Saturday in Shrewsbury, Massachusetts. The Rebels were without many regulars, but managed to score three goals and showed bright spots against a quality opponent.
"Despite the result there were a couple positives to take away," said Rebels player-coach Ryan Moloney. "We are happy to establish a relationship with another new team, and we were also able to give invaluable playing time to some of our newer players."
