Senior Hurling Championship 
Mount Sion 0-15 Tallow 1-7
     Our senior championship opener ended in defeat on Saturday evening in Dungarvan as Mount Sion ran out five point winners in a tense and edgy game. Mount Sion won this due to an unanswered ten-point scoring run between the 20th and 40th minutes and our revival came too late to save us from defeat.
   Captain Thomas Ryan got our first point from play after three minutes as Mount Sion started the better and raced into a three points to one lead after ten minutes. A Rob O Sullivan free after 13 minutes narrowed the gap to just one but Mount Sion soon replied with a point of their own to stretch the lead to two on the quarter hour. We were dealt a blow when Kieran Geary was forced off at this stage to replaced by Jordan Henley and the young Harty Cup player was to have a big say in the rest of the game. Rob O Sullivan got another free and then a point from play to level matters after twenty minutes. Mount Sion soon upped their game though and seven minutes later they were four points ahead and only a miraculous goalline clearance by the evergreen David O Brien prevented a more substantial lead. We were struggling to contain the city team at this stage and two more injury time frees from them left the halftime score Mount Sion 0-10 Tallow 0-4.
    Mount Sion, with last year's minor star Austin Gleeson lying deep and getting onto a lot of ball, scored two more from frees and two from play after the break to lead by ten after forty minutes. However we seemed to play with more intensity from this point on and with the defence being led by the superb David O Brien and Kevin O Brien we started to deliver more ball into the forward line where Jordan Henley was getting on top and causing problems. Two Rob O Sullivan frees cut the deficit and when Jordan Henley slalomed through the Mount Sion defence for a goal with ten minutes left there was a sense that there might be something in the game for us. Again Jordan won a free on 55 minutes which Rob O Sullivan converted to leave just four between the teams. Unfortunately that was as close as we got as Mount Sion stopped the rot with a late free to bring the margin to five and that was how it finished 0-15 to 1-7.
