On Wednesday evening last at Fethard Moyle Rovers minor hurlers opened their South championship campaign with a 2-18 to 2-8 win over Ballingarry.
We started brightly, settled by some excellent points from Alec Owens and at the interval were three points to the good, 1-8 to 1-5, our goal scored by full-forward Eoin O’Connor.
After half-time we strengthened our grip on proceedings with some great hurling from the likes of Luke Boland, Shane Lonergan, Ross Mulcahy and our second half goalscorer Stephen Quirke.
A feature of the game was some excellent point scoring from out the field.
With a few still to come back into the reckoning we will be hoping for more success at the championship progresses.
