SECOND DEFEAT FOR HURLERS- The Junior Hurling team lost out in their second League game of the season at Sunny Harristown on Saturday evening when a well coached Piltown side made most of their chances and picking of some lovely points they outscored the home side by 1-17 to 2-8.In an evenly matched first half both sides showd plenty of endeavor and not a little skill as they attempted to make their mark on a sporting contest. the sides retired at half time level, Graig 1-5 Piltown 08 which was a fair indication of the run of the game.The second half began similar to the first but midway during the half the Piltown forwards found the range and sent over point after point to put daylight between the sides approaching the final quarter. A goal by the diminituve Ciaran O’Brien brought Graig right back into the game but sadly for the home supportes they were unable to maintain the impetus and as they appeared to be tiring Piltown added on more points to deservedly winn by 1-17 to 2-8. The Graig team was Sheamus Kavanagh, Leonard Blanchfield, James Cahill, Jim O’Donnell, Diarmuid O’Neill James Meaney, Bernard Hennessy, James Doyle, Paul Hamilton, Ronan Dowling, Eddie Walsh, Lee Kinsella, Ciaran O’Brien Eddie Dowling, Cathal Roche.
