JUNIOR A HURLERS: Patrickswell recorded its first win of the County Championship against Askeaton in Adare. The opening stages of the match were low-scoring and it took Patrickswell eight minutes to break the deadlock. From that moment onwards, the pace of scoring increased. By the 15th minute, the teams were level at 0-2 apiece. However, Pa Dundon’s team began to dominate the possession and chances. Two additional points were notched in a five-minute spell to establish a 0-4 to 0-2 lead. The remainder of the first half belonged to Patrickswell and we reached the interval at 0-9 to 0-4 ahead.
The second half started dramatically when Paul O’Brien plundered a close-range goal within fifty seconds of the throw-in. Patrickswell now had a substantial buffer of eight points and they continued to build on their growing superiority. By the 35th minute, the ‘Well led comfortably by 1-13 to 0-5. Over the next ten minutes, we outscored Askeaton by four points to two points. The second half water break was taken in the 45th minute and Patrickswell held their biggest lead at 1-17 to 0-7. Askeaton produced an impressive late revival to unsettle Patrickswell with two quick goals in the 57th and 59th minute. The scoreboard reflected a six-point advantage of 1-17 to 2-8 with four minutes of additional time to play. Patrickswell weathered the storm and there were no further scores by either team.
