Intermediate Hurling League;

On Saturday evening last we welcomed Meelin to Cloyne for round 8 of the hurling league. The game was played in a constant downpour but produced a game of high quality despite the conditions.

Meelin played with the strong wind in the first half and were first on the scoreboard with a point from play.Diarmuid and Colm O’Sullivan points from play edged us ahead but the next 10 minutes belonged to Meelin as they scored the next 4 unanswered points.

A point each from Colm and Domhnall O’Sullivan closed the gap again but these scores were quickly negated by 3 Meelin scores to open up a 4-point lead.

A general improvement in our play saw us finish the half strongly with 2 points from Dillon Cahill, one from Ashley Walsh and 2 Diarmuid frees to level the scores. A pointed Meelin free on the stroke of half time edged them a point ahead at the half time break. 10 pts to 9.

The second half’s scoring with wind advantage was opened by a kicked Ian Cahill point and was quickly followed by a point from Colm to edge us ahead for the first time since the early minutes.

Meelin responded with 2 points from play but 1.02 without reply from Ian, Ashley and Ciaran Mullins with the goal opening up a 4 point lead again.

Meelin responed with a point from play and 2 pointed frees to finish their scoring for the afternoon.

With the backs defending really well and Donal Og with an excellent save keeping the goal intact we pushed on and finished out the game scoring 1.06.

Diarmuid with 5 frees and one from play and a Keith Dennehy goal to close the scoring on a 2.19 to 14 point victory to put us top of the league on scoring difference.

Junior B Hurling Championship.

The Junior B hurlers begin their campaign with a good win over Carraig na bhfear on Sunday evening last.

The groundwork for this win was laid in the first half as despite playing against a very strong wind we led at half time by 2 points 1.06 to 7 points.

James Lynch scored a goal in the first minute when he finished a high speculative shot to the net for an excellent start. Brian Walsh who exploded into the game quickly added two points from play to stretch our advantage.

Brian O’Shea with 4 points two from play and two frees and a fine Cian Motherway effort completed the half’s scoring.

Carraig Na bhfear were first to score in the second half with a point from play and the next 10 minutes remained scoreless as the intensity in the exchanges increased.

Points from David Jermyn and Cian Motherway lifted the siege and took the sting out of the Carraig Na bhfearr challenge.

We finished the game strongly with fine points from James Lynch,Morry Lynch,Brian O’Shea,two from substitute Tommy O’Shea and the coup de grace was added by Brian Ring when he stole up from half back to finish expertly to the net. A goaled free and two pointed frees were added by Carraig na bhfear during this period to finish the scoring 2.15 to 1.10.
