BALLYBRICKEN/BOHERMORE GAA CLUB NOTES
Junior A: Ballybricken Bohermore played the final group game of the newly formed all county junior championship against west team Templeglantine losing out by three points. The game was played on a fine surface in Kilmallock on Saturday evening last with our challenger getting a fast start as we trailed by a couple of points we responded well with a goal from Daniel Owens followed up by some excellent points from play by Conor McCarthy and Daniel Owens leaving us ahead at the water break 1-2 to 0-4. The second quarter was a much more free scoring period were their was 16 points scored seven of which fell to ourselves with Michael Martin and Conor McCarthy getting two each and Sean Teefy, Daniel McGuire and Daniel Owens also adding to our tally leaving us trailing by a single point at the break 1-9 to 0-13. The match continued in its tight nature with every ball being well contested we exchanged points but we were caught on the counter attack and our opponents bundled home a decisive goal which left us trailing by six at the final water break. Despite the margin the game was still alive for us with Daniel Owens scoring two from play and a Conor McCarthy free reducing the margin to three, try as we did we could not close the margin any further and eventually lost out by 1-15 to 1-18. This singled the end of our 2020 junior A hurling campaign which was really a year of tight margins which we unfortunately fell on the wrong side of.
