Minor Hurling: Lorrha 1-22 Borris-Ileigh 1-11
Lorrha booked a semi-final against Kilruane after overcoming Borris-Ileigh in Moneygall on Wednesday evening last.
Lorrha were slow to get going but when we did, the scores flowed with Brendan O’Brien bagging Lorrha’s goal after about ten minutes. In fact the entire forward line got themselves on the score sheet in the first half as Lorrha took a 1-13 to 1-5 lead at half time.
With the game all but decided, the fare in the second half was not as competitive but Lorrha were never threatened and eventually recorded an eleven point win.
