Our Junior hurlers played shower great determination and no little skill as they disposed of a strong Bannow side in round 2 of the championship on sunday afternoon in Hollymount.Starting slowly they fell three points in arrears early on. A goal from a free by Ed  Rowesome kept us well in the game. Bannow forged ahead again but John O Loughlin who tormented the opposition lashed to the net to tie up the game again. Bannow led at halftime 0-9 to 2-2. The second half follow the same pattern with Bannow forging ahead and Monageer clawing back the lead on several occasions. Bannow looked the likely winners when leading 0-15 to 2-7 with only 5 minutes remaining, but a great finish with points from John Ivory and the ever reliable Ed Rowesome delivered a fine victory to send them to the top of the table in their quest to qualify for the quarter finals. Score of the day was a point from Ed Rowesome from over 100 yards after he collected a reverse handpass from Joe Canning, sorry thats Dec Kelly to inspire the revival. Best on the day were Chris Daly and Graham O Reilly and Sean Doran in defence. Larry Murphy was in top form in midfield while up front, John O Loughlin and Ed Rowesome were best.                                            Team; Morgan Gahan, Declan Kelly, Daire Turner, Liam Gahan, Sean Doran, Chris Daly, Graham O Reilly, Larry Murphy, Diarmuid Breen, Ed Rowesome(1-7 1-6 frees), Ger Daly, Adrian O Dowd(0-2), Brian Dwyer, John O Loughlin(1-0), John Ivory(0-1).
