UNDER 21 HURLING
Our under 21's had a fine win last weekend over Golden Kilfeacle in the semi final of the county tournament organised by the west board. All gate receipts for this tournament are in aid of the Dillon Quirke Foundation. An evenly match opening 20 minutes saw Golden take a 2 point lead till a Tom Purcell goal put Upperchurch in front. That was quickly followed 2 minutes later by another goal, this time scored by Michael McLoughlin. Golden responded with a goal of their own but it was Upperchurch who had a 3 point advantage at half time. The 2nd half was practically score for score as the gap remained between 1 and 3 points with our lads eventually prevailing by 2 points 2-15 to 1-16. Well done to all on a hard fought win. The other semi final between Killenaule and Burgess takes place this Sunday morning in Castleiney at 11:30am.
