McCumhaill's outclass Ballyshannon boys

U14 Hurling League
McCumhaill's 2-11
Aodh Ruadh 1-5

Last Wednesday, 4th May, in a poor display from a weakened Aodh Ruadh side, Aodh Ruadh were outclassed at McCumhaill Park by a strong aggressive and physically strong team from Ballybofey. The quick moving Aodh Ruadh corner forward Mickey Bowering went off after five minutes after a late pull and it was an uphill struggle all the way.

McCumhaill's, who featured several county stars, were in a determined mood and were ahead after five minutes after a speculative lob found the Aodh Ruadh net. Aodh Ruadh goal keeper Kevin Quinn recovered well and made two great saves in the second half.

McCumhaill's played well and utilised their half forward line to good effect showing great teamwork to pick off points. This contrasted starkly with some bad wides from the Aodh Ruadh half forward line. Best for Aodh Ruadh were David Downey, John Rooney and Chris Kilgannon.
