Shamrocks 2-16, Brian Dillons 2-8
We played Brian Dillons in the Minor Hurling Championship in Passage on Thursday evening. Dillons playing with the first half wind took a 2 point lead before Andrew O’Grady levelled the game with two well pointed frees. We were playing some great hurling and went into the lead only for Dillons to score a goal to make it 1-02 to 0-04. The sides drew level three times during the first twenty minutes and coming up to half time we scored three points to go in at the break leading on a score line of 1-04 to 0-09.
After the break Shamrocks took control of the game and with the wind at our backs we got some great scores to increase our lead, at one stage we were leading by 2-14 to 1-05 when Dillons got a 20 metre free to pull back a goal but Shamrocks were in control and ran out winners on a score line of 2-16 to 2-08.
