Midleton 2-15 v Na Piarsaigh 0-7
Our Fe 15 Hurlers reached the Premier 1 League Final when we had an away victory against Na Piarsaigh. This was an eagerly awaited game, with the same teams having contested the final of the Premier 1 Hurling League at Fe 16 level the previous week, we were anxious to make up for that loss. And so we did. 
Playing with the stiff breeze in the first half -we were 0-10 to 0-3 ahead at the break. Shortly into the second half, we got our second goal and that effectively killed off the game as Na Piarsaigh never really threatened after that. We now meet Iniscarra in the final in two weeks time.
