Shamrocks 4-18, Tracton 2-8
This game was played in Kinsale the same time our junior hurlers were playing in Ballygarvan in their championship. We started brightly against a much bigger and physical Tracton side. We had 1-02 scored in the first five minutes before Tracton came back at us with some fine points and the scored an important penalty. We replied and scored our second penalty just on the half time whistle to leave us leading on a score line of 3-05 to 1-04. The goals came from two Dylan O Flaherty penalties and a Ronan Connolly special.
Tracton started the second half the more stronger and when they found the back of our net there was only a goal between the teams with twenty minutes left to play. We then took over and scored eight points without reply. The majority coming from the left boot of Sean Andrews. Tracton scored some nice points then in return but a beautiful goal from RVP (Robert Van Pelt) settled the game as a contest.
This was a fantastic team effort and the lads are getting their just rewards for the long hours they are putting in. Team Cian O Flaherty, Jody Sisk, Evan Seymour, Mark Sisk, Sean Browne, Harry Andrews, Dylan O Flaherty, Sean Andrews, Andrew Egan, Ronan Connolly, Luke O Driscoll, Sam Geary, Subs used, Robert Van Velt, Adam McSweeny, Adam Maye.
