Junior B Hurling League

Russell Rovers 2-14         Castlelyons 1-13.

Saturday’s objective was to follow on from the excellent result which was achieved against Cloyne in midweek, but unfortunately, a game Castlelyons team came up just short in what was a good, open and fast encounter all through.

Played in very warm conditions, the highlights of the first half were an opportunist goal from Jack Barry (having also converted a goal earlier in the week against Cloyne) and some very good point taking from Colman O’Connell, five in all, two from placed balls and three really fine points from play. Castlelyons trailed at the break by 1-08 to 1-07.

We were chasing the game somewhat for the first ten minutes of the in the second half but a series of very well taken points from play courtesy of Peter Murphy (3), Alan O’Regan and Brian O’Donovan (1 each), had the Russell Rovers lead cut to three points entering the final few minutes. Russell Rovers held out but a lot of positives can be taken from a very committed display.
