East Cork U21 A Hurling Championship 2nd Round
Carrig 0-19 (19) St. Catherines 1-8 (11) in Dungourney on Saturday, July 20th.
Referee: Ger Scully (Killeagh)
Carrig led from pillar to post in game 2 of the U21 round robin format.
Carrig stretched to a 0-5 to 0-2 lead early on before St. Catherines started to work their way back into the game. Carrig held a 0-9 to 0-7 lead at the half with Liam Gosnell and James Mulcahy leading well in attack and Brendan Twomey marshalling the backs ably.
The second half was all Carrig as they outscored Catherines 0-10 to 1-1. Liam Gosnell was again to the fore with unerring free-taking and he was ably assisted by Sean Walsh and Mulcahy. Crotty and Oke were well on top at midfield and Twomey and Aaron Walsh Barry were clearing everything that came their way.
Carrig now have two wins from two with one game to go against Watergrasshill in the group stage. The top two teams in the group qualify for the semi-finals.
