JUNIOR HURLING LEAGUE CHAMPIONS
O'Loughlin Gaels 2-14 to 0-16 Clara.
Well done to the Juniors who outscored Clara in a 2nd half spell by 1-10 to 0-2 to claim this evening's silverware with 4 points to spare. A first half goal by Cian Loy kept the the Gaels in touching distance after a wind assisted first 30mins saw Clara lead 1-4 to 0-14. And with the wind in their backs O'Loughlins upped the tempo in the 2nd half with John Doyle troubling the Clara defence all the way through. In fact John Doyle was alert to the rebound of a penalty save to crash the ball to the net for the victors 2nd goal. The penalty coming after a fine delivery by goal keeper Paddy Delaney that found the hand of the Doc who was unceremoniously hauled down in the Clara square. The work rate picked up when needed resulting captain Brian Dowling picking up a nice piece of silverware for the club's cabinet. Well done all.
TEAM: P. Delaney, B Murphy, T Forristal, A O'Brien, J Molloy, J Leahy, M Gibbons, N Bergin, B Dowling, D O'Connor, D Lenihan, R. Buckley, C Loy, J Doyle, A Geoghegan. P Collins, P Byrne, D McCormack, A Cantwell
