O’Loughlin Gaels 4-17 to 1-10 Erin’s Own
The score line suggests a total dominance as Erin’s Own failed to put it up to the Gaels on this occasion. By the 12th minute Robbie Buckley has netted the first of his three goals for the afternoon already putting distance between the sides putting the score to 1-3 to 0-1. Comer returned a point immediately but Buckley stepped up for his second 3 pointer within a minute and the game was in danger of turning into rout. However Erin’s Own converted four more points over the next 15 mins in a good period for them but any chance of a first have resurgence was put to bet when Paddy Butler, Shane Mahony and Cian Loy pointed from play and Jack Nolan hit the teams 3rd goal after a good sniping run from him just before the break. Half time score O’Loughlin Gaels 3-7 to 0-6 Erins Own.
The second half got off to a good start with 2 more points added early through Mark Bergin (Free) and Jack Nolan. The Gaels seemed to find space too easily now and the opportunities were plentiful getting more forwards into scoring positions. Management will be happy with the spread of scorers across the team sheet with more coming from the substitutes sprung from the bench. Robbie Buckley completed his hatrick by the 40th minute. Comer did return a goal through Stephen Daly 10mins to put a bit of gloss to the scoreboard. Another good days work done and the Gaels top the group with four wins from four and safely through. Next Saturday the final league game v Rower Inistioge will be played at St. John’s Park and a big O’Loughlin Gaels Support is expected.
Well done all lovely hurling.
