Cappawhite had no difficulty whatsoever in despatching the challenge of Rockwell/Rosegreen in the Bewleys Ltd minor B hurling championship played at New Inn recently.

On very wet evening Rockwell/Rosegreen started well and were competitive for the first quarter with Liam Fahey and James Walsh playing well.

Cappawhite soon got on top at midfield and with their full forward in outstanding form, they started to cause lots of problems for Rockwell Rovers/Rosegreen boys. They led by six points at half-time.

The second half was predominantly one-way traffic as Cappawhite piled on the scores and there was no doubting their superiority in the end.
