LIAM MELLOWS........2-17

City side Mellows came south and beat Kinvara in this Junior C Hurling Championship tie played in splendid Faiche Phadraig, Kinvara.

Athough the scoreline suggests a handy win in the end, there was very little to separate the sides in the opening half.
Both sides were guilty of missing scorable points and probably they may have balanced each other out. But the big difference was the goals. Kinvara missing a coupe of gilt-edged opportunities, whereas Liam Mellows scored a rather fortutious goal from distance. In saying that the half-time score read to be little to separate the sides.

The second half proved a different story with Liam Mellows stepping up a gear, and Kinvara failing to match them. A second goal for the city side midway through the second period made sure of the result, athough credit to the Kinvara lads who battled bravely til the final whistle.

Tommie Hanlon, Aidan Fahy, Ollie Bergin, Fionn Hayes, Michael O'Connor, Fintan Byrne, Tomas Walsh, Francis Comyn, Rory Quinn, Shane Sullivan, Niall Kilkelly, Dylan O'Hanrahan, Martin O'Connell, Jason Huban, Tommie Kavanagh.
