The senior hurlers put on a ferocious display of commitment and skill when defeating Kiladangan in the county championship last Sunday evening in Dolla. A lively start saw us move into a 3 point lead however a Kiladangan goal from Darragh Egan levelled it up midway through the half. Upperchurch then reeled off 5 of the next 6 points to go into the break with a 3 point cushion. The Upperchurch forwards were causing plenty of trouble and drawing frees which Paul Ryan dispatched. Kiladangan, last years county finalists, attempted to mount a comeback in the second half but our players were determined to keep fighting to the death and not allow any space to the Kiladangan players. Upperchurch eventually prevailed on a scoreline of 0-15 to 1-9. In the other group game Borris-Ileigh and Loughmore drew which leaves Loughmore top of the table on 3 points, Upperchurch & Kiladangan on 2 and Borris-Ileigh on 1. No definite date is set for the final round of fixtures. The semi final of the Cahill Cup against Drom & Inch will be played next Tuesday June 6th at 7:30pm in Drombane.

Our final group game in the county group against Clonmel Commercials is fixed for Sat June 17th at 6:30pm in Cashel. It is still all to play for in the group with CLonmel on 4 points, Upperchurch & Ballyporeen on 2 and Cahir yet to get off the mark.

The first round of the mid championship against Boherlahan-Dualla will be played on June 18th at 8pm in Boherlahan.
