Junior Hurlers draw first round.

At a damp and foggy Cobh venue on last Saturday night our Junior A Hurlers played Cloyne in the first round of the East Cork Junior A Hurling Championship. We dominated
the game until the last ten minutes when Cloyne came from 6 points down to
level the scores. We were well in control of the match entering the home strait
and were ahead by 2 11 to 1 8. Cloyne
got through for a goal and then hit over three points in a row to tie the
scores at 2 11 each. The replay was
fixed for Carrigtwohill on last Tuesday night June 28th at 7.30pm.

Team; Gavin Quill, Barry Collins, James Murphy, Tomas Kearney, Nevin O Regan, Pat Walsh, Jim O Connor, Fergus Collins, Terry Broderick, Alan O Keeffe, Richie

Senior Hurling Championship.

We will have a break of a few weeks before our next game in the County SHC. Killeagh
and Bishopstown are fixed to play on Monday week next July 11th in Caherlag at
7.30 pm. As the Fixtures stand at present we are down to play the losers of
this tie the following Sunday July 17th. If our opponents are Killeagh the game
will be in Ballynoe and if Bishopstown, in Riverstown -at 3.30 in either case.
The game may well be changed depending on the fortunes of the Cork Senior
Hurling and Football teams over the next few weeks. Meanwhile we play
St. Finbarrs in the Senior Hurling League on this Thursday night June 30th. This is an away game, in Togher at 7.30pm.

Minor Hurling.

With our Minor Football team having a bye in the first round of the County Championship
our attention will be on Minor Hurling for the next month. We have a
provisional fixture made v Youghal in the Co. MHL for this Friday night July
1st . This game is dependent on results in the Junior A hurling C. Ship and if
it is going ahead players will be notified.
