Our Intermediate hurlers went down to a fired up Shamrocks in Blackwater on saturday afternoon. Little divided the sides for most of the first half with the bulk of the scores coming from placed balls. Shamrocks finished the half strongly to secure a 0-10 to 0-5 lead at halftime having had the advantage of the wind in the first half. We began the second half well and narrowed the gap to two points after five minutes, but the Shamrocks responded with four points to forge ahead again and despite a battling last quarter, the goal we badly needed did not arrive until injury time and proved to little too late.
