Aghada 4-10, Shamrocks 5-5
That first win of the season is only a game or two away after a great effort away to Aghada on Wednesday evening. Numbers are tight in the hurling but all players are making themselves available which is a good sign going forward – and the level or performance was a step up on the previous week.
These were two evenly enough matched teams for the entire game. Both teams led at different stages, the largest being 7 points for Aghada in the first half; however Shamrocks were in battling mode on this occasion and fought back through goals from Eoin O’Flynn and Philip Dorney. Aghada led 3-3 to 2-2 at HT.
Shamrocks played their best hurling after the break and went ahead courtesy of 2 goals from Mark Sisk and points from Sisk, Adam Maye and Seán Andrews. However, Aghada’s greater natural hurling ability came through towards the end and despite a Seán Andrews goal, Aghada held on for the win after a very exciting game.
The mentors were pleased with the players attitude and performance. They switch over to football for the next two weeks, starting with an away game to St Catherines next week.
