‘Tis seldom a junior hurling team can score 3-14 and lose a game. It happened our junior hurlers in Dungourney on Sunday morning last. Having got a walk over from Sarsfields in Division 2 of the Junior Hurling League we needed full points from our two remaining games against Dungourney and Cloyne to qualify for the League final. We led by 5 points at one stage but when a team has to play with 14 men for a long period it’s difficult. Dungourney came out on top in the end by a single point, 2-18 to 3-14, but it will go down as a game lost by indiscipline which is a shame because it just cancels out the great efforts of the rest of the team.
Team: G Quill, J O’Connor, L Forde, S Kearney, M O’Connell, S Walsh, N O’Regan, K Collins, S Murphy, C O’Keeffe, M Kearney, J O’Dowd, T Kearney, A Murphy, A O’Keeffe. Subs: D Arnold, J Bermingham.
On Tuesday night we played Lisgoold in Division 3 of the Junior Hurling League at Lisgoold. This was Lisgoold’s first team and we were defeated by 1-13 to 0-4.
Team: G Quill, N Hogan, J O’Connor, B Collins, M O’Connell, S Kearney, D Barry, N O’Regan, S Pratt, D Arnold, V O’Keeffe, P O’Dowd, A Collins, A O’Keeffe, D Collins.
