Lucan 2-11 St Brigids 3-09

Our Inter Hurlers claimed a thrilling one point win over Lucan Starsfields on Sunday morning to begin their 2015 campaign with two hard-earned AHL 4 league points. The foundation for their fine win were set in the opening half as goals from Dave Kennedy and Eoin Thynne, coupled with the superb free taking of Eoin Pony O Brien, gave the visitors a 2-05 to 0-05 half time advantage.

Lucan responded bravely in the second half and on several occasions had reduced the gab to two points. A goal from Neil Plunkett in the 46th minute gave Brigids a five point cushion once again and while late Lucan pressure yielded 1-01, time was not on their side and it was Brigids who ran out deserved 1 point winners.
