DUGGAN STEEL Under-13 ROINN B HURLING LEAGUE-  Galmoy/Windgap 9-7, Mount Leinster Rangers 2-8

Galmoy/Windgap under-13s had a convincing win over Mount Leinster Rangers in round three of the Roinn B league in Galmoy on Friday.

Mount Leinster were first to register, when full forward Jack Ivers struck a ground shot to the net but top scorer Jack Egan soon replied with a goal and a point.

Further points flowed from Tadhg Kennedy, David Nolan (2) and Egan(2) to stretch the lead of the home side.

Best performer for Mount Leinster, centre back Adam Joyce, kept his side in touch with three pointed frees.

Galmoy/Windgap finished strongly with impressive goals from Jack Egan and Aidan O’Shea.

Their fourth goal was a move which began in defence when Darragh Enright cleared to Tadhg Kennedy who sent a perfectly floated delivery to Jack Egan who then rattled the net to leave the hosts in control at the break 4-6 to 1-3.

With Conor Power, Aidan Doyle and MJ Corcoran clearing well in defence, the Galmoy/Windgap forwards had ample supply of the sliotar.

This trend continued immediately after the break when Jack Egan waltzed through twice in succession to raise two more green flags and put this game to bed.

Try as they might, Mount Leinster could not get back into this game, despite the best efforts of Adam Joyce, Darragh Coleman and Eoin Condron.

Joyce and Condron did tack on points but by the 40th minute, the hosts led 7-6 to 1-6.

In the 48th minute midfielder Eoin Condron did pull back a goal for the visitors when he blocked an attempted clearance by Conor Power, gathered the sliotar and shot to the corner of the net.

That was as good as it got though as further goals from Rory Quigley and Tadhg Enright rounded off an impressive performance from Galmoy/Windgap who must now travel to play Dunnamaggin away on Friday.
