PI Hurling Championship

Castlelyons 1-16  Kanturk  1-13

Castlelyons and Kanturk played out an exciting PI Hurling Championship match in Castletownroche on Sunday evening last. This being the first match of this years championship led to a tight nervous first half with Kanturk having the best of the exchanges and led by a goal at half time.R Feeney had our first point of the match and A Spillane added another to leave sides level at 2 points each after 10 mins. Kanturk scored a goal at this stage to take a lead that they held until half time. N O Leary and A Fenton added our next points to keep us in touch and with our defence working very hard to hold the Kanturk forwards this led to a very tight match. C Spillane scored 2 long range frees and S Moroney scored the last point of the half to leave Kanturk leading at half time by 1-07 to 7 pts.
We started the second half very well with T Carroll coming through the centre to score a good point. A O Sullivan came off the bench to score 2 good points as we cut into Kanturk's lead and with our full back line of B Carroll, C Barry and C O Leary playing well we began to dominate. T McCarthy was introduced with 20 mins to go and made an instant impact on the Kanturk defence as he created space for the other forwards and when a ball through the middle was won by A Fenton he raced through and beat some strong tackles to score a great goal to give us the lead for the first time. Our half back line of K O Leary ,C Spillane and L Sexton, who had a great game on Kanturks star player A Walsh , dominated their opponents and with points from C Spillane and A Spillane we were 3 points ahead with time almost up. J Barry  pulled off a great save from one of A Nash's frees and we got our last point from K O Leary after a great run from T McCarthy.That was the last score of a pulsating half and Castlelyons won on a score of 1-16 to 1-13.

Congratulations to the management and team on a good all round performance  and considering all our injury problems leading into the match it was great to get the win which was very important for the team as it guarantees Premier Intermediate status for next year but leaves plenty to work on before the next round which wont be played for another 7/8  weeks.

Best wishes to Lorcan Mcloughlin who left the field with a serious shoulder injury. Hope you are back fit and playing in the near future.
