UNDER 19 HURLERS: The U-19 hurlers suffered defeat in their first Premier Hurling Championship match at Mungret. The contest was finely balanced in the opening five minutes as both teams recorded three points apiece. Patrickswell’s scores were all Eoin Harmon frees. Unfortunately the home side were too strong and they amassed one goal and nine points without reply in twenty minutes. Eoin Harmon’s fourth free arrived in the closing minute of the half and Patrickswell trailed by 1-12 to 0-4 at the break.
The second half began with Mungret’s second goal, but Patrickswell stemmed the tide. Eoin Harmon struck a fifth free and John Kirby recorded a point to reduce the arrears to 2-12 to 0-6 in the 40th minute. The next ten minutes were level pegging as both teams notched another three points each. Eoin Harmon chipped in with two more frees and John Kirby scored another. There were ten minutes left and the Reds led by 2-15 to 0-9. Four points in six minutes put Mungret sixteen points clear, before the match concluded with two points each (John Kirby and Paddy Gardiner). The final result was 2-21 to 0-11.
