ACHL Div 4 – Loch Mór Dal gCáis 2-9 Mac Dháibhéid 1-20

The senior hurlers maintained their winning start to the league with a win away to Loch Mór at Mallusk last Saturday evening.

Loch Mór took the early initiative with three points, two from well hit frees in the opening three minutes. However, we quickly regrouped and with seven consecutive points, without reply, from Don Whelan (0-4), Darach Maher, Jay Maguire and Stephen McGivern we imposed ourselves on the game. A Loch Mór goal got them back in the game but we responded immediately with a major from Don Whelan, followed by a Colm McKee point. Both teams traded further points with Caoimhin Heaney and Stephen McGivern on target and with the final point of the half going to Loch Mór, from a 65, we led 1-10 to 1-7 at the half time whistle.

A pointed free from Don Whelan set us on our way in the second half and with points from Jay Maguire (0-2) Don Whelan (0-4), Stephen McGivern and Darach Maher we were well in control. Loch Mór added 1-1 to their tally through frees and with both teams added a point a piece in injury time (Don Whelan), we had secured the win on a score of 2-9 to 1-20.

Scorers: D Whelan 1-10, S McGivern 0-3, J Maguire 0-3, D Maher 0-2, C McKee 0-1, and C Heaney 0-1
