Senior Hurling: Killeagh opened their senior hurling campaign against near neighbours and rivals Cloyne in Killeagh on Sunday morning. From the first whistle this game was played at a frantic pace and both teams can be forgiven for being a little rusty with some wayward wides. It was Killeagh's Andy Walsh who opened our account with a point from play and Joe Deane got off the mark with a 30 yard free. Again Andy Walsh popped up to smash home the opening goal. Cloyne soon got their opening score and then rattled our net before John Fitzgerald hit a superb long range point from play and Joe Deane tacked on two more. Cloyne's late rally just before half time saw both sides go in at the break with a score of 1-06. With the breeze to our backs in the second half we opened with a purpose with Joe Deane goaling inside the second minute and Brian Collins and Joe adding 3 more points before Cloyne settled and tacked on two points. But our defence repelled attack after attack. Andy and Philip added two before Cloyne goaled again. An entertaining game on a beautiful spring morning saw us take maximum points in this opening league game game on a scoreline of Killeagh 2-14 Cloyne 2-10.
