SENIOR HURLING

Tomorrow(Saturday) sees a repeat of last years mid final as we face Thurles Sarsfields in the mid quarter finals. The team will be hoping to keep the momentum going after their victory over Drom & Inch 2 weeks ago. The game throws in at 2pm in Templetouhy and is part of a double header with Loughmore v Drom following our game. Best of luck to the panel & management.

SENIOR FOOTBALL
Last weekend saw our senior footballers get off to a winning start in the county championship as they defeated Galtee Rovers in Dundrum. A lively start saw us score 5 of the first 6 points before Galtee enjoyed a period of dominance to draw back level. Upperchurch scored the final point of the first half to lead by 0-6 to 0-5. We started the 2nd half brightly again but a Galtee goal from distance in the 36th minute saw them go in front. That only served to spur on our lads as we reeled off 3 of the next 4 scores before Niall Grant finished a Paul Shanahan pass to the back of the net to restore our 4 point lead. Some cool defending saw us maintain this till the final whistle and prevail on a scoreline of 1-11 to 1-7.

MINOR FOOTBALL
Our next game in the mid minor football championship is against Gortnahoe-Glengoole in Drombane next Wednesday(2nd) at 6:45pm)

SENIOR HURLING

Well done to our senior hurlers who put in a fine performance last Saturday evening and defeated Drom & Inch in the opening round of the county championship. Playing with the aid of a strong breeze in the first half we built up a strong lead and went in at half time 6 points up. The expected Drom fightback came and they managed to get to within 3 points with 15 minutes left. But our defence stood resolute and eventually we claimed a deserved 4 point victory on a scoreline of 0-20 to 1-13. This victory sees us in a strong position to finish in the top 2 in the group and qualify for the county championship knockout stages. Carrick Swans condeded a walkover to Thurles Sarsfields in the other game in the group. In the mid championship we will play our quarter final v Thurles Sarsfields on Sat 28th at 2pm in Templetouhy.
