Graigue Ballycallan minors took on The Fenians in the 1st Round of the Championship in Johnstown last Saturday 11th September at 3pm.
The two teams battled hard for the first quarter and at the water break there were just two points between the teams at 6 points to 4 in favour of the Graigue Ballycallan men.
From this point on, Graigue Ballycallan pushed on and widened the gap to 14 points to 4 by half time. The men in sky blue were hurling well all over the pitch with huge determination shown by all. From this point to the end of the game it was all Graigue Ballycallan and they ran out 2-23 to 0-6 winners after a very impressive display.
In a match where 1 to 15 were excellent throughout, a special mention has to go to Billy Dowling, Aaron McEvoy, Billy O’Neill, Jeff Neary, Conor Walton, Jake O’Brien and Patrick Foley for their ferocious workrate and leadership throughout the game. The boys will face Glenmore in Tom Ryall Park this Saturday 18th September at 2pm in the quarter final. Best of luck lads.
