Minor Hurlers have to settle for a share of the points

BSJ Minor Hurlers had another tight and nerve-wracking league game in Division 1 on a sunny Sunday morning in Marlay. This time the opponents were Plunketts and at the end the two teams could not be separated, finishing with 1-16 apiece.

Playing with the benefit of a breeze Plunketts started the strongest racing into a 4 point lead within four minutes. Johns however dug in and ensured the gap never widened, with Jack Kelly, Tom Ahern, Seamus Fenton & Daire Casserly all scoring from play, the first half finished 0-10 to 0-7 for the visitors. Again BSJ commenced the new half poorly, only scoring one point and hitting 3 wides in the first 10 minutes of action but a goal from Daire Casserly provided the catalyst for a revival with the team scoring 6 points (5 from play) in the next ten minutes, the highlight being a great score from the wing from Harry Ball. Heading towards the end Ballinteer had a 4 point lead and looked good for the win but conceded a late goal and point to finish the game level.

S Fenton 0-6 (0-5F)

D Casserly 1-2

Jack Kelly 0-3

T Ahern 0-3 (0-1F)

H Ball 0-2
