We began our Senior Hurling campaign last Sunday vs Bride Rovers in Pairc Ui Rinn. The match was previously fixed for Lisgould but due to the poor weather in the lead up to the game, it was moved to Pairc Ui Rinn.
The match remained close throughout the first half but through Maurice O Carroll (second goal) and Robbie O Flynn, we ended the half scoring two goals which gave us a commanding lead. The score line read 3-08 t0 0-08 at half time.
We started the second half in a similar fashion with three quick points, giving us a lead of 3-11 to 0-08. The game seemed to be over as a contest at this point and soon after Maurice O Carroll scored his third goal of the game. This put the game to bed.
The club want to congratulate Barry O Neill and his management team on the victory. The squad have been working hard over the last few months. The inter county scene will now take over for the next few months so the team’s focus will switch back to the Red FM Senior Hurling League.
