Borrisoleigh Junior Hurlers get off to a good start

By Claire Murray

The Junior Hurlers opened their campaign in Munster with a good 2-12 to 7 point win against Colaiste Dun Iascaigh, Cahir. Playing against a strong wind in the first half Borris settled quickly and got the first two scores of the game via of Sean Dunne. At this stage Alvis Danko was adding frees while Dan Ryan, Kevin Maher, and Seamus Ryan were keeping the Cahir forwards quiet. Borris got a goal just before half time to leave the score at the interval 1-7 to 5 points.

Playing with the wind at their backs in the second half the Borris players took their foot off the pedal and failed to impress allowing Cahir to gain a foothold in the game. During this period they squandered a few goal chances and lost their shape before they eventually woke up and saw the game out with a flurry of points for Danko, Barry McCarthy, Adam Ryan and Maher. The icing on the cake was a last minute goal from Danko to leave the final score of 2-12 to 7pts.
