Our Intermediate hurlers gave a fine display in dreadful conditions in Camolin on Saturday evening last to guarantee a place in the last eight of the championship. Leading at half time by 1-8 to 0-8 having played with the strong wind in the first half with Padraig Flynn scoring 0-3 and Bertie Gahan scoring the goal. The second half was all one way traffic as our lads upped their game to clinically pull away with James Gahan and John Ivory netting the goals and Bertie Gahan adding to his tally to finish with 1-7. With several players still to return from injury, honeymoon etc, competition for places will be healthy and training matches should be lively. Best on the day were Sean Murphy in goal, who kept another clean sheet and Mick Sweeney, Patrick Breen and the outstanding Niall O Reilly in defence with Padraig Flynn and Shane Kehoe dominant in midfield, while up front Bertie Gahan and John Ivory and the hard working Brian O Loughlin were best. Team; Sean Murphy, Ray O Brien, Chris Daly, Mick Sweeney, Niall O Reilly Patrick Breen, Dean Fenlon, Padraig Flynn(0-3,1 free), Shane Kehoe(0-1), Colm O Loughlin(0-1), Brian O Loughlin, Bryan Dwyer(0-1), James Gahan(1-0), Bertie Gahan(1-7,3 frees), John Ivory(1-2).
