Result: J J Kavanagh & Sons Jnr Hurling Lge
O'Loughlin Gaels 4-18 to 0-10 Tullaroan.
A strong performance from the lads this evening proved far too strong for the visitors. Much of the damage was done in the first 30 with Billy Leydon, Gary Kelly, Fearghal Brennan and Evan Walsh all in top form this evening causing all kinds of disarray in the Tullaroan backlines. Midfielder Danny Loughnane along with wing forward Johnny Doyle were the architects of many of the Gaels attacks buoyed by some stoic defending from Luke Hogan, Ross Butler, Barry Lawlor and Andy Cantwell. Worth mentioning too a fine save from a penalty midway through the second half by netminder David McCormack. Well done all involved .. 2 wins from 2.. lovely hurling.
Team: D McCormack, A O'Brien, B Lawlor, A Cantwell, J Lawlor, R Butler, L Hogan, D Loughnane, C Loy, J Doyle, D O'Connor, E Walsh, F Brennan, G Kelly, B Leydon. .. A Geoghegan, P Delaney, O Murphy, S Kenny
