EAST Cork u21 B hurling championship qtr final replay Dungourney 1-19 Aghada 0-21.

Dungourneys U21 hurlers were in action again on Sunday night last when they again crossed swords with their Aghada counterparts this was a thriller the last night the question was could this instalment live up to the first match?

Well the answer was yes this match had us biting our nails again,Dungourney took the early lead as James McCarthy had two points but Aghada kept with us and we led four points to three after twelve minutes we had the benefit of a strong breeze and were trying to make it count.The teams again exchanged points before John O Neill goaled for Dungourney to give us the half time lead 1-07 to 0-09.

The breeze had a big effect on the play and as Aghada had it in the second half they must have been confident but our lads are lionhearted and you could not write them off.

The second half was again tit for tat Aghada finally drawing ahead after 15 minutes but Dungourney did not lie down and were level again wth a minute to go .Deep into injury time the Aghada full forward pointed but on the next attack Dungourney equalised with a great point from Sean Broderick with the last puck of the game so there it was extra time .......again.

Dungourney were against the wind in the first period of extra time and two points from Jack Griffin were the highlights for us but he was only one of the heros in this team,we led at halftime by two points surely we would close it out now.Back came Aghada to give their all but Dungourney held firm and maintained their two point lead with some mighty defending,then two minutes into injury time Aghada got a 21 yard free they went for goal but thankfully the sliotar shaved the top of the crossbar , the ref  Brian Murphy blew the final whistle we are through to the semi final great stuff lads.Well done to the team,Will Daly and his selectors after the dissapointment last week this was a great reminder to everyone that Dungourney have a great team coming for the future years.
