Senior Hurling Championship:                                                                                    
Our senior hurlers play neighbours Ballyduff in the senior hurling championship on Saturday night in Lismore. A lot at stake here so please come along and support the lads.
U21 Hurling (A) Championship – Western Semi Final
A pattern has developed at inter county level this year of teams overhauling big half time leads and taking the game into extra time. So it was in Ballysaggart on Thursday evening when Cois Bhride and Comeragh Gaels met in the u21 Hurling Western semi final. 
This game looked done and dusted at half time. Cois Bhride cruised through the first half, picking off points at will, and led by 1-12 to 3 at the break. Ryan Grey alone must have converted about 8 of them.  Comeragh Gaels looked uninterested and disjointed. They allowed the Tallow/Shamrock combination acres of space and the Bridesiders took full advantage.
Maybe our lads got complacent but it was a different story in the second half.  The mid western alliance tightened up the marking and crowed the middle third denying Cois Bhride the space they enjoyed in the first half. They were far more cohesive and relentlessly whittled away at the lead. At the sounding of the final whistle, it was Cois Bhride who were hanging on as the game finished level (1-21 to 2-18).
There was some confusion before the game went into extra time. The momentum was with Gael na Comeraigh and they looked like they could finish the job. Both teams were out on their feet at this stage. Cois Bhride however regained their composure and finished the stronger after over 80 minutes of hurling to scrape through by the minimum. (1-29 to 3-22).  This should be the showpiece of developing talent in Waterford hurling but strangely enough its a grade that’s neglected.
