Abbeyside 2-23 Dungarvan 1-4
Our junior hurlers came up against a very capable and fit Abbeyside team in the first round of the championship in our own grounds last Sunday afternoon.
We trailed by just 0-4 at half time at 0-10 to 1-4 with our goal coming from our top scorer Conor Duggan but the Villagers proved completely dominant during the second half.
Our next game is against Ballyduff Upper.
Team : David Flynn; Sean Hyslop, Gary Donnolly, Neil Fitzgerald; Aidan Kirwan, Derek Barry, Luke Egan; Mark Boland, Rian Crotty; Mike Ameglio, Brendan Cullinan, James Kiely; Conor DuggaKarl Duggan, Liam Ryan. Subs : Robert Havens, Ryan Duggan, Stephen Donovan, Daniel Kiely, James O Callaghan, Alex Shanahan, David Hayes, Ivan Fitzgerald, Oisin Morrissey, Paddy Walsh, Jack Morrissey, Lorcan McGovern, David Crotty.
We never thought we would see the day when a junior B hurling game would be an all ticket affair but that is indeed the case for our local derby championship game with Abbeyside in our own grounds this Sunday July 19th at 2pm.
MIDLETON 4-14 RATHNURE 2-15
A second half improvement by Wexford side Rathnure wasn’t sufficient to deny Middleton a place in the John A Murphy SH tournament at our club grounds last Sunday afternoon.
A very fit and fast moving Cork fifteen worked the scores early on and it took Rathnure a while to get into the game. The winners will play Dungarvan in the tournament final on a date to be confirmed shortly
