Junior Hurling:
The hurlers played the quarter final of the County B championship on Sunday last in Caherlag against the Seandun representatives Rathpeacon. After a keenly contested hour of hurling the lads from the village emerged victorious by a scoreline of 1-12 to 2-06. The lads had prepared well for this competition and were keen to progress after the recent disappointment in the East Cork championship. This time we were on the ball from the first whistle and with the breeze at our backs Scott Richards was unlucky not to go right through in the first 30 seconds of the game but Rathpeacon managed to clear their lines. Thereafter it was score for score with both sides putting over some good points. Rathpeacon did manage to put the ball in the back of the Ballinacurra net when one of their lads pulled overhead and the ball nestled in the corner. This however only seemed to spur our lads on and we replied with a couple of cracking points from Mossie Stack and Scott Richards. These scores were followed by a peach of a goal from Brian Sigerson when Richie Keohane batted back from the end line and the ball was put across the '20' for "Rasher" to do the business. Rathpeacon responded well though and added another goal before the break as a result of hesitation in the Village defence. At half time the score was 1-09 to 2-04 in favour of the Village. The second half proved to be a real battle and with both teams squandering good chances to take points the result was in doubt right to the final whistle. The Village however defended well from the front against the stiff breeze and a big physical Rathpeacon side. The defence stood firm under pressure and managed to repel everything that Rathpeacon threw at them. On this occasion the lads were worthy winners and can now look forward to a semi final contest in a couple of weeks time.
