U21 Hurling Championship - We travelled to Lisgoold on Sunday evening for our first round in U21 Hurling Championship. Carrignavar were our opposition. It was a tense opening 5 minutes before Philip O'Neill broke the deadlock with a long range free. Carrigs response was instant. We hit a purle patch and scored 4 points without reply. We out scored Carrig 10 points to 6, seven of those were super scores from play. The second half never lived up to the first half. In 25 minutes we scored 4 points clear to Carrigs 2 to put us 6 points ahead with less than 4 minutes to go. A Carrig free that wasnt dealt with in the square was deflected to the net. It was now a 3 point game and Carrig got a new lease of life. A point from play pushed our lead to 4 points. The resulting puck out landed in the hand of Carrig's no.11 who travelled 50 yards amd rifled it to the back of the net. We managed to hang on til the final whistle and advance to the next round. Well done to all concerned.
