Our Junior hurlers got their West Championship campaign off to winning start on Sunday last in Dundrum with a well deserved eight point margin victory over Arravale Rvs.

Two cracking goals by Christopher O’Connor and one by Declan Riordan who came on as a substitute in the second half effectively ended any chance of an Arravale upset and with a big response to training, we can look forward to tackling some of the other fancied contenders for championship honours.

Final Score, Sologhead 3-9 Arravale Rvs 1-7

Team - David Kennedy, Brendan Collins, Noel Kennedy, Kieran Keane, Michael O’Connor, Colm Riordan, Brian Hartnett, J.J.O’Brien, Mike Fitzgerald, Christopher Hadnett, Phil=lip Doherty 0-4 frees, Jamie Ryan 0-1, Jonathan Ryan, Barry Ryan 0-2, Christopher O’Connor 2-1.

Subs. Declan Riordan 1-1 for Jonathan Ryan, Kevin Ryan for Kieran Keane, Eamonn Bargary for Christopher O’Connor, Pat Russell for Christopher Hadnett.
