Our Intermediate hurlers had an easy win over our neighbours Buffers Alley in Ballinastraw on saturday evening last to maintain their impressive start to the league campaign. They set about the task with real conviction and Bertie Gahan shot two excellent early points before retiring with a recurring hamstring injury. Excellent foward play was rewarded with a steady flow of scores with Niall O Loughlin from frees and play showing great accuracy. Padraig Flynn who had moved to full foward raced through to net two well worked goals, both with excellent finishes to give Monageer a half time lead of 2-11 to 0-4. The Alley came into the game for a spell after half time and shot a few scores but their rally was short lived as further points from Flynn and Dean and Damien Fenlon and a late goal from Mark Gahan finished the job in some style. Overall it was a good team performance with Dean Fenlon and Chris Daly excelling in defence. Larry Murphy was outstanding in midfield while up front Niall O Loughlin, Podge Flynn and Mark Gahan were best.
