MINOR HURLING: Our Minor Hurlers were defeated by Abbeyside by -15pts to -10pts in their second game in the Minor Hurling championship last Monday night in Ferrybank. This was a vastly improved performance by the team from their opening game. Excellent work in the middle of the park from Mark O' Brien and Oisin MacCaothmaoil helped Ferrybank to win a lot of ball, but Abbeyside held the half time lead by -7pts to -5pts, with John Ahern scoring some excellent points. In the second half, Abbeyside took control and took with scores, however Ferrybank kept plugging away and worked their way back into the game, and the goal they badly needed didnt materialise as Abbeyside held on to claim the points. TEAM: Robbie Carew, Emmet Fell, Seamus Burchill, Greg Kinsella, Stephen Quinn, Damien Ahern, Jamie Diggins, Oisin MacCaothmaoil, Mark O' Brien, Eoin Buggy, Mark Russell, Luke Flynn, John Ahern, Eoin Faulkner, Cian MacCothmaoil, Cormac Dillion, Thomas Lane, Alex Kinsella, Kevin Fell, Geoff Lawless.

JUNIOR HURLING: Our Junior Hurlers played Eirns Own in a challenge game in Ferrybank tonight, and following a good game of hurling the sides finished level at 3-11 each. Ferrybank held a slight 1-4 to -5pt lead at half time with Andrew Keogh scoring a great goal with a bullet of a shot which flew into the top corner of the net. Second half goals from Chris Hoban and James Murphy put Ferrybank in control, but Eirns own scored two quick goals to reduce the gap, and scored a third goal to give them the lead. It was left to Andrew Keogh to level the game with a well pointed free to draw the game. This was a good workout for the team.
