Clerihan Junior Hurlers created a little bit of history in damp and wet Goatenbridge last Wednesday night. By beating Ballylooby/Castlegrace in the South Junior Hurling Championship the club recorded their first win at this grade in almost 50 years. Clerihan began the game brightly with early scores from Andrew Ryan and Stephen O’Dwyer settling the team down. The game entered a scrappy period after the early exchanges with both teams struggling with the very difficult underfoot conditions. Clerihan re-exerted their control before half time and a fine goal by wing forward Andrew Ryan left Clerihan 1-8 to 0-3 in front at half time. Ballylooby began the second half in determined fashion and slowly began to reduce the deficit. Clerihan steadied with John Hurley, Stephen Ryan and Andrew Ryan re-gaining control around the middle of the field began to pull away. A fine Bernard O’Shea goal mid way through the second half put Clerihan in an unassailable position and a further goal late on by Andrew Ryan and a couple of uperb points by both Leo Curtan and Benny Sullivan put the icing on the cake of a fine team performance. Final Score Clerihan 3-13 Ballylooby/Castlegrace 0-8.
Team: Eoin Barrett, Tomas Barrett, Shane Sullivan, Eamon Barret (capt), Eoin O’Dwyer, Jason O’Dwyer, Stephen Ryan, Dan Walsh, John Hurley, Brian Keane, Leo Curtan, Andrew Ryan, Stephen O’Dwyer, Bernard O’Shea, Adrian Lawrence. Subs: Micheal O’Rourke, Keith Flannery, Benny Sullivan, Paul McGrath. Well done to Kieran Colm and Tommy.

The girls put up a great fight but it wasn’t to be their day with St. Pats the stronger side coming out on top. Well done to everyone for a great game.
