Senior Hurling – Bagnelstown De La Salle v Scoil Aireagail

Scoil Aireagail 4-11
Bagnelstown   2-06

On Wednesday 3rd October our Senior Hurling Team started off their campaign with a good victory over a solid Bagnelstown De La Salle team. Despite being a little slow to start they finished the first half 2-4 to 0-4 ahead, thanks to goals from K. Farrell and R. Cody assisted by points from M. Jones, R. Corcoran and K. Farrell. However they could have been punished for their many wides were it not for some good defending and a number of good saves from goalkeeper A. Roche. The Scoil Aireagail men were much better in the second half and with further goals from K Farrell and points from R Coffey, R Corcoran, A Fitzpatrick and P Delaney the final scoreline of 4-11 to 2-6 reflected their improvement giving an 11 point victory. Despite the positive scoreline there is room for improvement in this team which mentors Mr Murphy and Mr O’Hanlon believe have the potential to go a long way in this tournament.
