Our under-16 hurlers had another very good win last night with a 4-15 to 2-8 win over Rathnure. Going into the match, Rathnure had won all three of their matches, whereas Ferns had lost two of their four matches, so this was a match that we had to win in order to keep in contention for a quarter-final spot.
From the off, the team got some nice scores and led at half time by 2-6 to 0-4. Great teamwork and effort continued in the second half saw us finish up deserving winners.
It's back to football next Monday night with a match against Geraldine O Hanrahans with our next hurling match on being Monday August 3, versus Ballinastragh Gaels. Well done to all involved.
