Shamrocks 3-12, Lee Gaels 3-8
Shamrocks qualified for the West Region B2 hurling final with this 4 point win over a battling Lee Gaels team on Friday night at Ballincollig. This game was in doubt up until the very end as Lee Gaels made a great comeback but Shamrocks scored the winning goal and a point in the last 3 minutes to move into the final.
The first half was very low scoring and at half time Shamrocks led 2-6 to 1-2. There was a lot of hard work ahead in the second half and slowly but surely Lee Gaels clawed back the deficit and drew level just before the great finish from Shamrocks. The Shamrocks players at the end certainly knew they were in a game – it was a thrilling finish. Well done to all and to our great travelling support.
