Our intermediate hurlers returned to winning ways with an impressive display of aggression and craft to completely outplay a Fethard side whose pre match form suggested otherwise. Early goals from Bertie Gahan and Colm O Loughlin set the tone in this at times over robust contest but our lads never yielded an inch and with our defence in superb form we led at half time by 2-8 to 0-6. Facing a strong wind in the second half, we comfortably dealt with the Fethard challenge, restricting them to 0-1 in the entire half while replying with 1-4 ourselves with Damien Fenlon grabbing the goal to finish the game as a contest. On a day when there were many fine displays, we had exceptional displays from young Graham O Reilly who was making his debut at this level along with Tommy Breen, Mick Sweeney, Mark Walsh and Colm O Loughlin.
