UNDER 19 HURLERS: The U-19 hurlers bowed out of the Premier Hurling Championship after an entertaining match at Newcastle West. The home team scored the first point of the match, but Patrickswell responded with three points from Eoin Harmon, Paddy Gardiner and John Kirby within three minutes. The home team knocked Patrickswell backwards with a goal and three points; however the ‘Well responded with a goal from John Kirby and points from Pa Kiely and Eoin Harmon. The scoreline after only fifteen minutes was an advantage of 1-5 to 1-4. Unfortunately Newcastle West dominated the remainder of the first half and led by 2-9 to 1-7 at the interval.
Patrickswell scored the first point of the second half, but found themselves seven points adrift when the home side struck their third goal. There was no capitulation by the ‘Well as the visitors notched a goal and four points in just five minutes (John Kirby goal, Eoin Harmon 0-2 and Cian Gorman 0-2). With twenty minutes left, there was a real chance of victory at just 3-10 to 2-12 behind. The hosts slammed to door firmly shut with a spell of two goals and seven points to Patrickswell’s three points. Johnny Murray’s consolation goal was the last score in a 5-17 to 3-15 reverse.
