Junior Hurling

Our Junior Hurling had a narrow one point win over Eire Og/Greystones in their last match in the Junior Hurling Championship League in Greystones on Tuesday evening. The final score was 3-11 to 1-16.  They say that goals win matches and this was certainly the case on Tuesday evening when we were seven points behind Greystones/Eire Og going into the last two minutes of normal time, when John O’Keefe and Paddy Kearney scored a goal each to level the march and Kevin Byrne's point in injury time won us the game by the slenderest of margins, there was a great performance by all the players concerned, considering we were chasing the match from the start and were behind at halftime 1-9 to 1-5, but the never say die attitude by these players was the main factor in this victory. Our scores came from Kevin Byrne 1-2, John O’Keefe 1-2, Paddy Kearney 1-0, Liam Kavanagh 0-6, and John Cullen 1pt.  Team manager Ray Kelly has done a wonderful job since this league started, getting out teams and is now looking forward to the knock out stages for the real championship.
