Junior Hurling League Dungourney 1-19 St.Catherines 1-10

A good win on Saturday evening in Dungourney for the lads. A first game against St.Catherines in over 30 years at Junior level. A quick start for the saints as they goaled inside the first minute. Both teams cancelled each other out early on and another score didn’t come until the tenth minute. James McCarthy playing wing back picked up a breaking ball broke a number of tackles and slotted over from long range. This kicked the forwards into action Shay O’Gorman pointed from play after a good Niall Motherway pass. Niall got his name on the scoresheet next picking up a ball in the middle of the field he ran and ran before unleashing a rocket into the top corner of the net. Shay got two more points one from play and one from a placed ball. A Catherines point was replied to by a Niall point, Catherines got two more points from frees. Shay scored two more points one play and one free, Catherines got two points from frees. Shay got another point from play just before half time and it was a beauty out by the sideline from a very difficult angle he made it look simple. Credit Kevin Rohan for a great assist losing his hurley he showed his football skills with a great kick pass. Dungourney 1-8 St.Catherines 1-5

Three quickfire Catherines points to start the second half made it a draw game. Shay pointed from a free and three points from Niall two frees one play left us four up with ten minutes to go. Niall got three more points two well worked scores from play and one free. Kevin playing in the forwards after a few years in defense showed he still knows where the posts are, gathering the ball in midfield and turning is man inside out he slotted over nicely. Catherines got two points from play, Shay then scored another point from play a beautiful one handed strike. A long range point from Jack Griffin and a second from Kevin were the final scores of the game.

Good perfomances from the half back line of James, James and Jack lay the foundation for this success and great point scoring from Niall and Shay in the forwards.
