The under 21 hurlers began and ended their championship on Saturday in Coolree v Duffry Rovers at 4.30pm, as they suffered a one point defeat on a scoreline of 1-11 to 2-09. We started well going three points ahead but the duffry responded well and scored an important goal shortly before half time to make the half time score 1-04 to 0-07. The second half started well for us with James Sweeney scrambling a ball into the Duffry net but this was one of the few highlights of a poor second half performance. Points were traded until the end but some indiscipline cost us and the Duffry ran out winners.
