Junior A Hurlers Advance   28/05/2017

Our Junior A Hurlers enjoyed an excellent win in Round 1 of the Mid-Cork Championship over last year's beaten finalists, Blarney.  Playing with the aid of a brisk wind in the first half today in Cloughduv, we built up a decent lead of 1-10 to Blarney's 1-04, with James M O'Leary unerring from long-range frees.  Blarney also had a man dismissed in the first half.  The second half was a serious test as Blarney battled hard against the 15 men of Uibh Laoire.  Uibh Laoire defended in packs, pressurising the Blarney players at every opportunity while also displaying some lovely hurling to pick off scores to maintain our lead and eventually emerge victorious on a score-line of 3-12 to 3-10. 

Well done to players and management on what was a deserved victory over one of the fancied teams in the Championship.  This win provides an excellent platform and safe passage to Round 2 of the Championship!  Well done to all involved!
