Senior Hurling
The first game of the Centenary Agri Mid Senior Hurling Championship was played in Holycross between Moycarkey Borris and JK Brackens on Sunday last. Many expected this to be a tightly contested battle and the first half of the game was just that. In this first minute Shane Scully, JK Brackens opened the scoring with a pointed free. Tom Hayes and Pat Ralph opened Moycarkey’s scoring with a point each. Dean McEnroe, JK Brackens equalised on the fourth minute and the teams traded three points each before JK Brackens took the lead with two points as the game entered the second quarter. Two more Pat Ralph points to Shane Scully’s single point were added to the score line before Niall Heffernan raised the green flag. This goal gave Moycarkey the cushion they needed and also, the determination for the final seven minutes. Six more points for Moycarkey to JK Bracken’s four points meant Moycarkey Borris went in at half time Moycarkey 1-13 JK Brackens 0-12.

The second half started with a frenzy of scores in the second minute the first score was a Lyndon Fairbrother point for the Brackens, just before Kieran Morris netted the ball for Moycarkey followed quickly by a Shane Bourke point for the Brackens. The next Moycarkey score came in the fourth minute, a point from Pat Carey. Moycarkey received a free in the seventh minute and Pat Ralph’s rasper of a shot rattled the net, stretching Moycarkey’s lead to nine points. In the following ten minutes Moycarkey scored an unanswered two points, Tom Hayes and Kieran Morris and a goal by Conor Hayes. The teams traded two points each before Moycarkey added another two unanswered points, Brian Moran and Pat Carey. Moycarkey Borris 4-20 JK Brackens 0-16. Moycarkey Borris now progress to the Mid Semi Final.

Intermediate Hurling
Clonoulty Rossmore hosted Moycarkey Borris in round three of the County Intermediate Hurling League yesterday evening. The opening minutes of the game were nip and tuck with the opening score for Clonoulty Rossmore in the fourth minute. In the sixth minute Moycarkey Borris equalised and this is the way the game proceeded until the twenty second minute when Clonoulty’s Fiachra O’Keeffe netted the ball. In the following minute, a scuffle in the front of the Moycarkey goal resulted in the ball crossing the line to put Clonoulty ahead by four points. Both sides traded a further two points to go in at half time, Clonoulty Rossmore 2-7 Moycarkey Borris 0-9

The second half was a different affair with Clonoulty Rossmore adding three quick points to their score line before Moycarkey added their first in the thirty sixth minute. There was a repeat of the scoring in the next six minutes, with a point each traded before the game entered the final quarter. The margin had increased to eight points before Clonoulty netted the ball in the fiftieth minute. Clonoulty added two further points in normal time before Eamon Clohessy rattled the net for Moycarkey.
