Adult Hurling Update

Our U21 hurlers played Liam Mellows last weekend, in Round 2 of the ‘B’ Championship. Both teams had been defeated in Round 1, so were pitted against each other in this winner-takes-all knockout matchup. Mellows were the better team on the day winning out, 1-17 to 2-11. Pearses are now eliminated from the title race. Pearses lost both games by just two points, so were not far off the mark. Many of this bunch are U21 again next year and hopefully the experience at this level will stand to them!
Pearses U21 v Liam Mellows: Finbar Healy; Tom Broderick, Ronan Bellew (1-0), Paul Lally; Ronan Skehill, Paul Moore, Alan Naughton; Brian Sweeney (0-8f), John Lally; Robbie Lally (0-1), Darragh Skehill, Darragh Kelly; Gary Hennelly, Keith Connell, Gary Lally (0-2). Sub: Lee Murphy (1-0).

Details of the refixture to be confirmed. Pearses have played four League games to date, winning two and losing two. The other remaining game, along with the Killimordaly one, will be against Athenry.
