CLAUGHAUN GAA CLUB NOTES
This weeks Results:
JAHC 1st RD: : Sat 8/Jun in Rhebogue : Claughaun 1-13 3-10 Old Christians
Claughaun 1-13 3-10 Old Christians (HT: 1-8 to 1-6)
Scorers: Macauley Murtagh 1-6, Emmett Harty 0-3, Ian McNamara 0-2, Cian Graham, 0-1, Dean Kennedy 0-1.
We played near neighbours & familiar opponents OC in the our first match of the City Pre Intermediate Hurling Championship.
A tough battle ensued with OC starting strongly and raced into a 1-5 to 0-2 after 15mins where during this opening salvo saw an
injury to our centre forward forcing an early change. We capitalised on a sending off for OC by ending the half 1-8 to 1-6 ahead.
On the resumption, both teams exchanged points, OC then raised a green flag to put 3 points between the sides with 10mins remaining.
We slotted over 3 unanswered points to draw level with 5 mins remaining but OC struck for a green flag to again put 3 between the sides.
Another red card for OC near the end forced an OC rear guard action but we couldn’t grab the elusive score in the remaining minutes despite laying siege.
‘Bloody but unbowed’ as the saying goes, we look forward to the City League Final in 2 weeks v Patrickswell & the remainder of the HC over the coming consecutive weeks.
We wish Matthew Graham the very best in recovery with the injuries sustained during the game.
