BLACKROCK GAA CLUB NOTES
Fantastic result for the Junior B hurlers beating Cappamore in the County Semi final after extra time. It was 1 09 to 2 07 at half time, and a heart stopping second half saw us down 1, 1 13 to 2 11 at the second water break . We played well in the last 15 min with 14 men, to go 3 up, as full time approached but It was 1 18 to 2 15 at full time after a late Cappamore flurry. In extra time it was 1 19 to 2 16 but in the second half of extra time we pulled ahead to score 4 points to Cappamore’s 1 to win by 3 points. Final score of 1 23 to 2 17. We now play Bruff in the final, a repeat of the South final.
