Rapparees 5-6 Shamrocks 1-15
The minor hurlers dug out a win against the Shamrocks in the second round of the championship last Sunday. It took us a long time to get going and the Rockies went into an early lead, scoring an early goal and latching on a few well taken points.
Our lads kept at it however and we got points from Craig Foley and Adam Kirwan and a couple of frees from Jack Doyle which were then topped with a goal by Jack Mythen following a brave run from Mick Dempsey. Another goal from Jack left us only behind by a point at half time 2-4 to 1-8.
It was tight all the way in the second period but goals from JP Farrell, Mick Dempsey and Will Doyle were the difference. Final score: Rapps 5-6 Shamrocks 1-15.
