St Joseph’s Borrisoleigh Senior Hurlers

St. Joseph’s Senior hurlers triumph over Cobh 1-17 to 1-04
On Wednesday the 26th of October, St. Joseph’s made it two wins from two with a fine 13 victory over a physical Cobh outfit. Played in ideal conditions in Goatenbridge, St. Joseph’s were without Templederry trio Richie O’Donoghue, Conor Looby and Tim McCutcheon due to injuries, but other players stepped up to the plate, making the victory all the sweeter.
St. Joseph’s opened the scoring with a pointed Bob Delaney free after 2mins and this set the tone for the first half. Cobh found it hard to get their hands on the ball around the middle third of the pitch due to the work rate of the St. Joseph’s players. Any balls that did pass beyond the 45 were confidently dealt with by the full back line and goalie.
Coming up to half time, St. Joseph’s were still in control but Cobh were starting to find their feet and after four wides in a row they got off the mark with two quick points to leave the HT score 7-2 in favour of the Tipp side.
Hitting the ground fast was vital for Cobh but again, due to the good work from the St. Joseph’s players they were snuffed out and the game started pattering out. St. Joseph’s forwards were moving well and taking their scores when the opportunity arose’ while the midfield and backs were never far away from their men. Final score was 1-17 to 1-4.
