Caherline GAA Club Notes
JUNIOR HURLING: our lads headed back west on Wednesday July 25th to play Newcastlewest in a challenge match. There wasn’t much between the teams in the first half, NCW 2 points up at the break, 0-08 to 0-06. We started the 2nd half well, with a goal 4 minutes in from William Hourigan. It was almost point for point between the two teams for a lot of the 2nd half until to the 29th minute, when NCW got a goal of their own to put them a point up. In time added on, a free from midfield was dropped in in front of the NCW goal and in the melee, Jack Heelan pulled and drove the sliothar into the back of the net. Not look after the puck out, the ref blew the final whistle, Caherline winning by 2 points, 2-13 to 1-14. It was a great run out for the lads against the Intermediate team. Special word of mention to all the minors that started or came on, they really added to the efforts of the team and didn’t look out of place out there. The future looks good for Caherline Gaa, well done all !!
