JHL Avondhu/Imokilly 11th March 2012
Shanballymore 1-15 Russell Rovers 1-6

For the first competitive hurling game of the year, Our junior hurlers travelled away to Shanballymore. With a new line-up from last year we entered this game in an optimistic mood. The Rovers started the game on fire, after 8 mins they had the ball in the back of the net, A ball from Paudie Higgins split the Shanballymore defence and Kevin Ivers read the pass to tap into the net. This left the score 1-1 to no-score after 10 mins. After this Shanballymore reacted well to this setback and after socring their opening point they too got a goal. After drawing level Shanballymore started to pull away. 2 good points from Dan Moynihan, after some good work by Barry Hartnett, and Jack McGrath left the rovers still trailing. But Shanballymore kept their nerve till half time and lead on a score line of 1-4 to 1-8.
The second half was all Shanballymore and raced into a 8 point lead halfway through the half. 2 more points from Dan Moynihan cut it to 6 points but that was as close as it got for the Rovers. By the Full time whistle the score line read 1-15 Shanballymore 1-6 Rovers. The Rovers management will want to bounce back from this set back in time for the next game in two weeks.
