County Junior Hurling League

Dungourney 1-16 St.Colums 0-9

The first hurling game of the year for our lads with a good win in conditions far from ideal for hurling. We were quick out of the traps with Colm Griffen pointing inside the first minute. St.Colums levelled, Jack Griffen added two quick points from play from distance, another point in reply from St.Colums. Ryan Denny got his first point from a 65 with St.Colums adding two points leaving us level after twenty minutes. In fairness to the lads they upped the intensity and finished the first half very strong, the defence got on top and delivered great ball to the forwards who took full advantage. James Leahy was the first to react to the breaking ball after Sean Hegartys goalbound shot was blocked and James finished to the net. Ryan added another point after Jack was fouled, Jack got his third point before a long range point from John Ronayne. Ryan added his third point from a free after Jack was fouled leaving the score Dungourney 1-8 St.Colums 0-4 at the short whistle.

The second half was slow to get going with both teams making mistakes and defences on top. St.Colums got the first two points in the second half, Eoin Ahern added two nice points from play from midfield. Ryan added another point from a free after he was dragged down, he fired over another point from play from a Bill Ahern diagonal ball. Eoin won a breaking ball in midfield burst forward before slotting over for his third point of the game, Ryan added another from a free putting us in control  with ten minutes left. St.Colums added three points in the final ten minutes with Ryan adding two more from frees giving us the win on a margin of ten points.

A good start for the hurlers with some impressive performances from Dave Hennessy and Mark Hegarty in defence Eoin Ahern in midfield, Jack Griffen and Ryan Denny in attack.
