JUNIOR A HURLERS: The Junior A hurlers made a winning start to the City League when they won away to Monaleen. The hosts scored the opening point, but Patrickswell raced into the lead with points from Jonathan McMahon (0-2) and Cian Enright. Monaleen replied with two fresh points to equalise at 0-3 apiece. While Darragh Ahern nudged the ‘Well ahead once again, Monaleen were level within a minute. The latter stages of the first half were controlled by the ‘Well as Cian Enright notched three points. At the interval, Anthony Carmody’s men were 0-7 to 0-5 ahead.
Patrickswell began the second half strongly and went 0-9 to 0-5 ahead when Cian Enright and Darragh Ahern took their points. Monaleen narrowed the gap with a point, but they were undone by a “purple patch” of four points from the ‘Well. The scoreline was 0-13 to 0-6 with ten minutes left on the clock. Adam Carrig and Cillian O’Reilly’s points closed out the match and Patrickswell returned home with a 0-15 to 0-8 triumph.
