Courcey Rovers 4-10, Diarmuid Ó Murchús 3-7
The U16 hurlers eventually got to play their first hurling game of the season in Ballinspittle on Monday night. Courcey Rovers won by 8 points but the new Shamrocks/Crosshaven hurling combination can be happy with their efforts in their first ever outing. They had 15 players on duty and all got plenty of game time and contributed well.
Seán Andrews got an early DÓM goal and they led 1-0 to 0-2 early on. The lads played well together for a time but for the last 10 minutes before HT, Courcey Rovers went on a scoring spree and scored 2-4 without reply to move 3-6 to 1-3 ahead at HT. Tim Sheehan had another DÓM score in that half.
The second half was much better and after Courcuies scored 2 early points, the DÓM lads got the bit between their teeth. From 10 points down, they took over and scored a couple of goals from Mark Sisk and Adam Power. They were now within a goal of Courcies but that al important equalising score never came despite plenty of chances and Courcey Rovers finished the stronger. Overall, a good first outing.
Players on duty – Joe Glossop, Fionn Herlihy, Cian Herlihy, Mark Sisk, Harry Andrews, Christian Byrne, Seán Andrews, Josh McCarthy, Adam Power, Conor Finn, Owen MErchant, Tim Sheehan, Phipip Dorney, Adam McSweeney, John Coleman
