Patrickswell GAA Club Notes:
Junior A Hurlers:
The Junior A hurlers were crowned City East Intermediate Hurling champions after an epic victory over Caherline. The first fifteen minutes were keenly fought as Caherline held a narrow 1-4 to 0-6 lead. However, the East Men had built a five point advantage of 2-10 to 1-8 by the interval despite Kieran Long’s goal.
In the second half, Patrickswell sought to erode the Caherline lead. By the 45th minute, the teams were inseparable at 2-16 apiece after Kieran Long scored his second goal. Cian Enright struck a penalty to ensure extra time was required after the teams were level at 3-17 to 2-20.
The first period of extra time saw Caherline in the ascendancy. The ‘Well found themselves behind by three points at 2-25 to 3-19. Remarkably, Patrickswell stunned Caherline with two goals from Darragh Ahern and Josh Carey to seal at 5-22 to 2-28 victory. Congratulations to the team and management.
