Under 21 B Hurling Championship Quarter Final
St. Joseph’s secured the last of the semi-final spots in the race for the U-21 B hurling championship title, when they accounted for Scariff-Ogonnelloe at Meelick on Saturday.
This was a hard-fought tie and there was little between the sides throughout. The winners held a one-point advantage at half-time, when the score was 0-7 to 0-6, after both sides had failed to capitalise on a couple of great goal-scoring opportunities.
Scariff-Ogonnelloe had he better of matters in the third quarter and got back on terms but they just could not get their noses in front and the Doora-Barefield men finished strongly, striking a couple of excellent points.
David Conroy for the winners and Conor Hayes for Scariff-Ogonelloe were the chief scorers.
Conor Tierney and Cathal Ruane also got on the scoresheet, while Ben Baker, Peter Collins and the Hannon twins, Jack and Tom, played well for the Parish.
The winners played the final quarter with 14 men, after full-forward, Darragh O’Sullivan was sent off midway through the second half.
Team: Kevin Moloney, Peter Collins, Fionn O’Carroll, Conor Kerins, Ben Baker, Eoin Hanrahan, Jack Hannon, Conor O’Brien, Tom Hannon, Cian Barron, David Conroy, Conor Tierney, Ciaran Thynne, Darragh O’Sullivan, Cathal Ruane. Subs; Ciaran O’Halloran for O’Carroll (injured)
