Intermediate hurling v Crossabeg Ballymurn

Our intermediate hurlers made it two championship wins from two games this afternoon in Monamolin. A slow start left us 3 points to 1 behind, but thanks to some excellent long range scoring from Laurence Murphy and some accurate free taking from Brian O Loughlin we led at half time by 0-08 to 0-07. Ballymurn opened the scoring in the second half before we scored 2 unanswered points. A well worked move from Ballymurn resulted in a goal to put them a point ahead, and only for some excellent goalkeeping from Sean Murphy we may have conceded another couple. Scores from Brian O Loughlin, Shane Gahan and Diarmuid Fenlon put us a point ahead and some resolute defending from all of the backs meant we held on for our second 1 point win to leave us on 4 points from two games. Next up is the Shamrocks on August 12th at 7:30 in Farmleigh.
