Our senior hurlers made it 2 wins from 2 in the league when they defeated Clonoulty Rossmore in Clonoulty last Friday night. It was Upperchurch who took charge midway through the first half and built up a healthy lead. Clonoulty powered back though and looked like they would pull off the win, however we managed to steady the ship towards the end and claim a 1 point win 2-16 to 2-15. Next up we will face Borris-Ileigh in Drombane on Sunday 16th at 2pm.
The intermediate hurlers also had a good win in the league last weekend when they defeated Arravale Rovers in their clash. After a tight start we pulled away towards the final stage to claim a 6 point victory 0-19 to 0-13. The next 2 fixtures in the league have been set. Our previously postponed fixture v Clonoulty Rossmore goes ahead next Tuesday evening in Clonoulty at 8pm. Then next Friday (14th) we welcome Golden Kilfeacle to Drombane with throw in at 7:30pm.
