Ballinhassig 3-21, Shamrocks 2-12
This was a welcome outing for the Shamrock Junior Hurling team, having not played a game since our championship victory on on Friday June 12th last. The lads were a bit rusty starting off against a mature and well tested opponents. It was pleasing to see an improvement as the game progressed especially in the second period.
We got the very first score of the game when last season’s minor captain Aonghus Boland hit a splendid point. Ballinhassig were taskmasters at punishing mistakes and indecision. They accumulated some easy scores as a result especially in the first half.
The second half was very much a period were Shamrocks put down their mark too.
