JUNIOR B ALL IRELAND FINAL

Last Sunday saw the junior hurlers dream of an All Ireland title ended by Whitechurch of Cork in the All Ireland final in Killeedy. In glorious conditions Whitechurch gained the early dominance and with the help of a goal took a 4 point lead into the break. Upperchurch began the 2nd half strongly with 2 early points to bring the deficit down to 2 and then had a fine goal chance well blocked before Whitechurch struck their own green flag to take control. From then on we were chasing the game and couldn’t find the necessary goal to bring us back into it. Final score was 2-16 to 0-12. Despite this defeat it has been a fantastic year that has seen the team claim mid league & championship & county titles along with Munster & All Ireland final appearances.

JUNIOR B ALL IRELAND SEMI FINAL

Last Sunday saw our junior hurlers make history as they qualified for the All Ireland final by defeating Kinvara of Galway. In very difficult weatherconditions during the first half both times went in at the break tied on 3 points apiece. The strong crossfield breeze died down somewhat at half time and Upperchurch took control from there on in and eventually ran out 9 point victors 0-14 to 0-5. Strong performances were on show throughout the field. They now await the victors of this Sunday’s semi final between Whitechurch & Craanford. The final is possibly to be play on the weekend of March 26th.
