In roasting conditions in walsh park last Friday night our senior hurlers completed their senior hurling championship group games with a draw against DLS. We led by 0-5 to 0-2 after eleven minutes thanks to points by Cormac Curran, Cathal Curran and a brace from play in quick succession from Gavin Crotty. The only goal of the game was conceded by a quick line ball to Eddie Meaney in the 14th minute but points from Kieran Power and John Curran had the teams level for the third time come the 25th minute on a score of 1-4 to 0-7. Darren Duggan’s penalty save in the first minute of added time ensured that we trailed by just the 0-1 at the break on a score of 1-6 to 0-8.
Darren made a second brilliant one on one save just after half time which kept our hopes alive in this game. In the second half Cormac Curran was our only scorer pointing 0-5 while we confined DLS to 0-2 from play and 0-4 overall. Cormac Curran nabbed the equaliser on the call of normal time. While this was not a aclassic game of hurling we battled hard to secure a draw and deserved it against one of the championship favourites.
Team: Darren Duggan, JOHN CURRAN, KEVIN DALY, JACK LACEY, JAMIE NAGLE, KIERAN POWER, KENNY MOORE, CATHAL CURRAN CONOR SHERIDAN, JOE ALLEN, COLM CURRAN, GAVIN CROTTY, CORMAC CURRAN, DARRAGH LYONS, MIKE KIELY, AARON DONNELLY, KEALAN DALY.

Well done to Darragh Murphy on winning the St. Joseph’s Hurler of the Year Award and to Luke Power who claimed the football accolade.
