Our Senior hurlers went to UPMC Nowlan Park to take on Mullinavat in the final round of the St. Canice’s Credit Union League. After a disappointing result against Dicksboro in round 2, GBC were hoping for a better performance.
In the opening 15 minutes GBC were holding their own against a strong Mullinavat team. Points from Sean Ryan, Tom Dunphy and Aaron Brennan saw GBC 0-7 to 0-5 down but hurling well. But after the water break GBC didn’t register a score and it was 0-10 to 0-5 at halftime to Mullinavat.
GBC had more fight in them in the second half but scores were difficult to come by and at the water break it was 0-13 to 0-9 to Mullinavat. In the final 12 minutes GBC were trying to press hard but the Mullinavat backs held out and won on a scoreline of 0-18 to 0-13
