GAA NEW - Lisdowney came to Piltown on Sunday last and went away with an emphatic and well deserved victory in the first round of the J.J. Kavanagh & Sons Junior Hurling League. They gave warning to all that they mean business this year & based on this performance will be there at the business end of the championship. On top in practically all positions Lisdowney’s open brand of play & their ability to find a team mate proved too hot for Piltown to handle.

During the first seventeen minutes the scores were close enough after which wind assisted Lisdowney led by 1-4 to 0-5. Lisdowney were on top though, & Piltown Goalkeeper David Burchell made a great save to deny Michael Kenny. For the remainder of the half Lisdowney let rip & added three goals, (one of which was of the soft variety) & five points without reply to leave the half time score Lisdowney 4-9 Piltown 0-5 & the home team had a mountain to climb.

Aided by another goal on the restart Lisdowney ran out convincing winners. Piltown did succeed in making the scoreboard more respectable with second half goals by Peter McCarthy & Daniel Norris. The home side will be keen to put this outing down to experience & will be looking for a much improved performance in their next League encounter.

Cards - Adrian Fitzpatrick & Ger Breen were the winners in the regular Thursday night progressive thirties at the Piltown G.A.A. Complex.
