Junior Hurling Championship:  Tallow 4-18   Lismore 3-8
Tallow overcame the challenge of Lismore with some ease to record their second win in the junior hurling championship in Ballyduff on Saturday evening. As the score line suggests it wasn’t the most competitive of games and a bigger winning margin would not have flattered the Bridesiders. That said, I wouldn’t be reading a lot into it as Lismore were seriously under strength for this local derby.

Tallow were in control from the outset and dominated the game until the final whistle. They led 2-9 to 0-6 at half time and added the same again in the second half to give them a final tally of 4-18. Lismore hurled better in the second half and recorded 3-2 but the final outcome was never in doubt. Tallow enjoyed lavish possession throughout but tended to over elaborate, taking the short passing game to extremes and yielding up unnecessary turnovers. A more direct approach would at times have been more effective. We had some well taken scores and a good spread coming from eight different players. It was heartening to see a squad of 24 togged out and 3 more to come on to it.  My man of match was Will Hogan who was operating as a sweeper. He read the game well, attacked the ball and distributed intelligently. Paul O Mahoney too showed some deft touches at wing back and Kevin Henley is in flying form. There’s plenty room for improvement however and some of the panel need to reacquaint themselves with the hurling field. It would make all the difference!!

Tallow: JP Grey, S Pratt, J Tobin, W Hogan, P O Mahoney, K Fraser, E Hickey, M Curley (0-6,4f), Stefan Tobin (1-0), A Pratt (0-1), D Mulcahy (1-4), J Neville (1-1), K Henley (1-2), B Henley (0-2), J Power (0-2), M Tobin, N Condon, B Buckley, M Barry,  A Buckley, S Ryan, S Barry, D Mangan, A Curley
We have just one remaining game against Kilgobnet in the preliminary rounds. We would need a result here to assure qualification to the knockout stages. No date for this fixture as yet.
