SENIOR HURLING
Well done to the senior hurlers who overcame Carrick Swans in Golden last Saturday to claim their 2nd win in the Dan Breen championship group stage. The first half especially was a tough, hard fought affair with the teams evenly matched and trading points until just before half time Michael Lee struck for the games opening goal. This helped us to a 4point half time lead. We started the second half strongly scoring 5 of the opening 6 points to take an 8 point lead and despite 2 goals from Swans we were able to run out 6 point victors 1-23 to 2-14. The final group game is this Sunday between Thurles Sarsfields and Drom & Inch and should Drom not win we will qualify for the knockout stages. If Drom do win then this will set up a 3 way playoff between ourselves, Sars and Drom to see who emerges.

SENIOR FOOTBALL
The final group game has been fixed for Sat 8th Spetember at 6pm in Dundrum against Arravale Rovers. We currently sit on 2 points from our 2 games. Moyle Rovers currently have maximum poitns from the 2 rounds played, Upperchurch & Arravale are on 2 pts while Galtee Rovers are yet to get off the mark.

SENIOR HURLING
Despite a fierce effort last Saturday we came up short against reiging county champions Thurles Sarsfields in the second round of the county championship group stage. A fine team performance saw us go into the break ahead with 8 different scorers from play. This was maintained into the second half and we held a 2 point lead at the three quarter mark. But sustained pressure from Thurles Sarsfields saw them charge through and record a comfortable victory. Drom’s victory in the other group game see’s us level with them on 2 pts. Sars have 4 and Swans are on 0. Our last game is against Carrick Swans on Sat 25th at 6:30pm in Cashel. A victory coupled with Sarsfields beating Drom would see us into the county knockout stages. A win for both us and Drom would require a 3 way playoff to determine who progresses.

SENIOR FOOTBALL
The county senior football championship re-commences this Sat Aug 18th at 6:30pm in Cashel with a tie against Moyle Rovers. After victory over Galtee Rovers in our first game we will be hoping to keep up that momentum. All support appreciated. The final group game has been fixed for Sat 8th Spetember at 6pm in Dundrum against Arravale Rovers.

MINOR B FOOTBALL
The mid final against Drom & Inch has been fixed for next Wednesday(22nd) at 7pm in Holycross. Best of luck to all involved.
