Our Junior hurlers continued their fine form on Thursday evening in round 3 of the championship with an impressive performance against Taghmon/Camross in windy Oylgate and booked their place in the quarter finals with two games to spare Leading by 2-5 to 0-5 at halftime with John
O’Loughlin scoring both goals in a man of the match display. We had to withstand a great come back from a strong Taghmon side who eventually closed to within a point with 12 minutes left and despite now playing into a stiffish wind we used all our experience to pull away again with points from O Loughlin and Ed Rowesome. Morgan Gahan in goal along with all of our defence were excellent, with Sean Doran and Sean McCabe exceptional, Larry Murphy at midfield and Johnno at full foward also excelled Team; Morgan Gahan, Declan Kelly, Daire Turner, Sean Doran, Graham O’Reilly(0-1), Chris Daly, Sean McCabe, Larry Murphy(0-1), Aidan Gahan, Ed Rowesome(0-5,0-4frees), Ger Daly(0-1), Adrian O Dowd(0-1), Bryan Dwyer, John O Loughlin(2-2), John Ivory(0-1). Subs; Conal Nolan for O Dowd, Mick Nolan for Ger Daly.
