The senior hurlers had a narrow 2 point defeat against Moycarkey Borris in the Cahill Cup quarter final last Wednesday evening in Littleton. Two goals for the home side in the opening 6 minutes gave them an early advantage and helped them to a 5 point half time lead. A 4-5 point margin was the general difference throughout the second half before Moycarkey got a 3rd goal after 24 minutes to stretch their lead to 8 points. This was quickly countered by 2 Upperchurch goals but we had left ourselves with too much to do and Moycarkey progress on a scoreline of 3-18 to 2-19. Attention now turns to the final round of division 1 in the county league where we make the trip south to Mullinahone with a throw in time of 12pm on Sunday(14th). We are already guaranteed progress from the group but a win here would see us claim 5 victories from 5 in the round robin stage. Best of luck to the team and management.
It is set to be a busy few days for our intermediate hurlers in the county league as they finish their final 2 group fixtures. Tonight(Tue 9th) we head to Clonoulty to face Clonoulty Rossmore with a throw in time of 7:30pm. Then currently scheduled for Friday is a Drombane fixture vs Ballybacon Grange with throw in here set for 7:30pm also. Best of luck to the lads and a reminder that admission is free to all group games in the county leagues.
