Junior Hurling Championship:

Tallow   1-14    Lismore 2-13

This was a cracking game of hurling with all the ingredients you would expect from a local derby. It was tough and competitive throughout with plenty of spills and thrills but I have to say played in a good spirit.

Lismore opened the scoring with a pointed free but thereafter Tallow broke from the blocks and reeled off 8 points in succession to take control of the game. Lismore hung in there and a goal towards the end of the first half gave them a vital foothold from which to launch their second half comeback. Tallow were the better team and looked comfortable over the opening period yet couldn’t shake off Lismore and had only a 2 point lead to show for their efforts. Half Time: Tallow 0-8, Lismore 1-3.

Lismore dominated early exchanges after the resumption and gradually pulled ahead. Tallow stayed in touch with a Brian Henley goal helping to rebalance things for a short while. There’s no doubt Tallow had opportunities to salvage this game in the closing stages but Lismore held firm and on balance of play just about deserved the narrow 2 point win. All in all it was a most entertaining game. Though it has been a disappointing season for our juniors they finished the year on a high with two spirited performances against Ballyduff and Lismore last Friday night. Our thanks to team selectors and players for their efforts!
