Monageer/Boolavogue 3-9 Gusserane 2-6

Our Junior hurlers made a winning start to their All County League campaign on Sunday last with a hard earned win over a highly rated Gusserane team. Playing with wind advantage in the first half we turned over leading by a single point 0-5 to 0-4 with most of the scores from placed balls in what was a rather poor 30 minutes of hurling.  Our boys improved considerably in the second half and when James Gahan flashed home the first goal we proceeded to dominate right to the finish. Bryan Dwyer grabbed another 1-2 and a fine goal by Patrick Walsh after a great James Gahan pass wrapped up the points. Best on the day were Chris Daly and James Donohoe who had a fine game at wing back, Damien Fenlon had an excellent game in midfield while up front James Gahan and Bryan Dwyer were best. Laurence Murphy when introduced also excelled.           Team; Morgan Gahan, Denis Walsh, Ray O Brien, Sean Doran, James Donohoe, Chris Daly, Sean McCabe, Damien Fenlon, Patrick Walsh(1-0), Colm O Loughlin(0-1), David Breen, Ed Rowesome(0-3 frees), Adrian O Dowd(0-1), Bryan Dwyer(1-3), JamesGahan(1-0).     Subs; Conal Nolan for R O Brien, Larry Murphy(0-1) for Ed Rowesome and Diarmuid Fenlon for Adrian O Dowd.
