Éire Óg 3-10 Lorrha Rovers 5-15
Our minor hurlers were the first team in the club to take to the field in championship action this year and ended up on the wrong side of a 3-10 to 5-15 scoreline against Lorrha Rovers in Puckane. Seth Shayanewako was in flying form early on setting up goals for Ben West and Seán Crowe however Lorrha Rovers quickly took control and as we approached half time, they took a lead which they would not relinquish for the remainder of the encounter. Jamie Cottrell got a late goal for the Blues but it wasn’t enough to close the gap.
Éire Óg 1-14 Kilruane 1-13
Nenagh Guardian Match Report –
In group 2, Nenagh Éire Óg overcame Kilruane MacDonaghs by the narrowest of margins on Sunday morning, 1-14 to 1-13.
They had to do so after losing Dáire Quinn early on through injury after James Cleary and Kieran Cahill had given MacDonaghs a two-point advantage. Indeed Cahill had a fine afternoon for Kilruane, finishing with a personal tally of 0-6.
At half-time Kilruane led 0-9 to 0-6 but the home side were quick off the mark scoring 1-2 inside the opening four minutes of the second period; the goal was scored by Adam Healy after good work from Killian Gleeson. Nenagh controlled the second half but had a nervy finish as James Cleary scored a late goal to level the sides but Killian Gleeson quickly restored Nenagh’s lead with what proved to be the match winning point.
