Many players from that winning team have progressed to the senior ranks and the junior hurlers are finding the going much tougher this year. After losing their opening 2 games a return to victory was not to be found against an in-form Fr O’Neills side that remains unbeaten in the league. Carrig trailed 1-11 to 3 points at the break with the visitors dominating possession and chances. The 2nd half saw a lift in tempo from this young Carrigtwohill side and Cathal O’Sullivan and O’Kelly Regan hurled a good amount of ball in the middle of the park. Ciarán Gosnell and Colin Santry also showed well in attack and Denis O’Connor was resolute at the back but O’Neills finished out the stronger. Carrig now travel to Cobh this Friday at 7.30pm in the next round of the league.
