Dungarvan 0-13; Fourmilewater 0-14.
Our senior hurlers were caught at the post in the second round of the County senior hurling championship at the Fraher Field on Thursday evening last. Playing with the strong wind we laed at half-time by 0-10 to 0-3 while also shooting six wides in the half. Darren Duggan made a great save just on the stroke of half-time to deny Fourmilewater a certain goal.
Our final score of the game came in the 49th minute which gave us a three point lead, but Fourmilewater stuck the last five points and deservingly took the honours on the night.
Team D. Duggan, A. Donnelly, K. Daly, L. Egan, J. Curran, K. Power, J. Nagle, C. Curran, C. Sheridan, C. Curran, G. Crotty, J. Allen, P. Curran, C. Curran, M. Kiely. Subs: K. Daly, J. Lacey.
