The third hurling team were our first team to play this weekend and they won well against Marshalstown’s second team in Farmleigh on Saturday. The final score in this match was Monageer Boolavogue 4-14 to Marshalstown 1-12. We started well with three points from Morgan Rowsome but it was the first goal of the game from Walter Christopher which had everybody talking. A ball was played in towards the square from the right wing, when Walter made a terrific one handed over head pull to send the ball crashing into the net leaving the goal keeper helpless. Moments later we had a similar score from Micheal Somers, who made a one handed pull from a long ball sent in from midfield which ended up in the roof of the net. Barry Millar completed a great run of three goals in the space of a few minutes and by this stage we were looking very comfortable. The half time score was 3-09 to 0-06. Marshalstown fought back in the second half but our half time lead was too large for them to get closer than 10 points and we eventually ran out 11 point winners.

Our first team played against Buffer’s Alley’s second team on Sunday and lost by 1-12 to 1-11. Our lads didn’t perform very well on the day but were still in with a shout right until the end, we probably deserved a draw because Buffer’s Alley’s last point went wide.
