Hurling Season Commences

Castlelyons 2-12 Blackrock 2-11

Castlelyons Intermediate hurlers played their first match of the new season when they took on Blackrock of Limerick on Saturday last, in a challenge match, in Castlelyons.On a dry bright day the pitch conditions were excellent considering all the inclement weather we had over the past 2 months. The first half was a very even affair with both teams going score for score and considering it was the first match of the season some excellent points were scored. Castlelyons led at half time by 1 pt on a score line of 0-08 to 0-07. Following numerous positional and personnel changes the second half was a good contest with Blackrock establishing a 6 pt lead after 15 mins. Castlelyons to their credit kept battling away and scored 2 goals in the last 10 mins to run out winners by 1 pt. This was a good workout for the first match of the season against a strong Blackrock team with all the panel getting game time.

Training continues on Tue night and Fri night this week with a challenge match against Lismore on Saturday.
