Senior Hurling Challenge v Courcey Rovers

Our  Senior Hurlers continued their preparation for the new season with a 10 point win over Courcey Rovers on Saturday last in Rathcormac.
The Rovers led 2-08 to 0-09 at the interval, this lead was as a result  of two fine goals from Barry Johnson & Colm O’Keeffe as the Courcey Rovers forwards kept our backs busy and scored some good points. The Rovers started the second half well as Barry Johnson notched his second goal from a 21 metre free. Further points from Daniel Dooley, Jerome O’Driscoll & Jason Mannix ensured a Rovers win on a scoreline of 3-13 to 0-12.
