Inter Hurlers Back Track Beating Naomh Mearnog 2012-03-28 12:37:00

St Brigids Inter hurlers made hay while the sun shone out in beautiful Portmarnock on Sunday morning as they totally outclassed Naomh Mearnog 2-15 to 1-01 in AHL 5. Played in glorious conditions for hurling, the Castleknock outfit were in total control from the outset with corner forward Brendan O Halloran swinging over three excellent points inside the first 15 minutes. Brigids continued to push forward relentlessly and when Shane Egan angled home a rasping shot to the top corner of the Mearnogs net in the 25th minute, the game was as good as over.

To their credit, Mearnog?s replied briefly at the beginnings of the second half with a quick fire 1-01 but the accurate free taking of Willie Madden kept the score board ticking over for the Saints. Two long range points, one from Egan and another from centre forward Stephen Moore settled proceedings and left the Russell Park men to return home with two league points safely in the bag.

St Brigids: Tim O'Leary, John Hanley, Glen Markey, Willa Corbett, JD Mulcahy, Eoin Thynne (0-01), Seamus Lynam, JP Costigan (0-01), Mick Galvin, Cormac O Meara (1-0), Stephen Moore (0-02), Shane Egan (1-02), Brendan O Halloran (0-03), Willie Madden (0-06), Noel Kidd.

Subs: Brendan Farrell for Brendan O Halloran (inj).
