Monageer/Boolavogue 3-13 St Marys Rosslare 3-13.

Our Junior hurlers travelled to Rosslare for the 12.00 throw in on Saturday and came home with a well deserved share of the spoils after a great comeback. Rosslare raced in front and led 1-2 to 0-0 after only 4 minutes play. Monageer battled back and with Liam Gahan and Chris Daly getting a grip in the half back line we battled back well to be only 2-7 to 1-6 behind at half time. James Gahan scored 1-1 and tormented the Rosslare full back line winning a succession of frees which the ever reliable Ed Rowesome repeatedly punished. Rosslare forged ahead again and led by 7 points with 15 minutes left. Colm O Loughlin came on to the edge of the square, immediately he caused panic in the Rosslare full back line and scored two brilliantly taken goals. Two long range points from the increasingly influential David Breen and another from the now rampant Sean McCabe whose solo and finish from the right sideline was sheer class, brought us to within a point of our hosts. Monageer were now completely on top and eventually got a well deserved equaliser when Ed Rowesome from the left touchline shot a brilliant point. The team showed great battling qualities and looked the much fitter team at the finish on what is a very big pitch. Best on the day were Ray O Brien, Chris Daly and Liam (Monageer)Gahan who was outstanding at wing back. Foster Lacey worked tirelessly in midfield while Sean McCabe was brilliant in the second half. Up front David Breen battled really well while Colm O Loughlin when introduced and James Gahan were particularly impressive.       Team; Peter Mernagh, Keith Swaine, Conal Nolan, Ray O Brien, Sean Doran, Chris Daly, Liam Gahan, Foster Lacey, Sean McCabe(0-1), Larry Murphy(0-1), David Breen(0-2), Ed Rowesome(0-7, 6 frees), James Gahan(1-1), Damien Fenlon(0-1), Garry Ennett.      Subs; Adrian Flynn for K Swaine, Colm O Loughlin(2-0) for A Flynn.
