Junior Hurling championship

St. Patricks 0-13 Kilsheelin 0-13

St. Patricks commenced their Junior A hurling championship last Sunday at Monroe against Kilsheelin. It was a lovely morning with the sun shining so a good game was expected. Unfortunately it didn’t pan out this way…
It was a very lack luster affair, with scores very difficult to come by. The half time score was 0-4 to 0-5 in favour of Kilsheelin. Kilsheelin missed a number of chances which would have put them more to the fore at half time.
The second half was an improvement, but still well below what both teams would have hoped for. Tony O’Brien came from corner to wing forward and improved things for St. Pats. Also R. McCormack came from full forward to center forward in the second half and picked up two good scores from play.
In the last minutes the game was very much in the balance and Pats led by 2 with 5 mins left. Kilsheelin did well and picked up the two last scores to make a draw of it.

All in all a poor first outing for both teams. Lets hope for improvements in the upcoming games.
