CHAMPIONSHIP WIN FOR FE.18 HURLERS 2018-08-08 11:57:00



Inniscarra had a good win over Glen Rovers at Blarney on Wednesday evening in the

Premier 1 Hurling Championship and now progress to the next round where they will

meet Midleton. After a sluggish first half lnniscarra trailed by 10 points to 6 points at half

time but in a five minute spell at the beginning of the second half they scored a goal and

three points without reply to take control of the game.

Straight from the throw-in lnniscarra gained possession with Con O'Leary feeding the

ball to Padraig Holland for the first score. Two points by The Glen were cancelled by two

points from Fergal O'Leary. After two more Glen points, Padraig Holland leveled the

scores with a pointed free after a foul on Darragh Hughes. A dangerous Glen attack was

stopped with a brilliant save by goalkeeper Evin Cunningham and good defending by

Jack O'Sullivan and Robert Cahill got the ball to Dylan Church who fed Mark Buckley for

a much needed point. Fergal O'Leary got lnniscarra's last point of the half after catching a

Iong clearance by Mark McLaughlin.

Half-time lnniscarra 0 - 6.Glen Rovers 0 - 10.

Trailing by four points at half time, lnniscarra were a lot more determined in the second

half and were quickly on the scoreboard with half time substitute Stephen Linehan

playing in Dylan Church for the first point. Padraig Holland then scored a massive long

range point from the right wing before Owen McCarthy scored his first point after very

good defending by Jamie O'sullivan. Owen McCarthy was then through on goal and was

fouled for a penalty which Padraig Holland dispatched to the net. A pointed free by

Padraig Holland was followed by a point by Frankie Horgan and two points by Liam Ryan

and one each by Dylan Church and Owen McCarthy followed by two Padraig Holland

frees. Another point by Owen McCarthy was followed by a great catch and run by Sean

Sheehan before leading to a foul which Padraig Holland pointed. Padraig then converted

another free after a foul on Colin O'Leary.

Final Score INNISCARRA 1 - 20, GLEN ROVERS 0 - 12, which meant lnniscarra

conceded just two points in the second half.
