Senior Hurling Championship:
Tallow 3-22 Ballyduff 1-27 (aet)
From the opening half minute when Sully pulled off a point blank save to the dying moments of extra time when Tommy Daly fired over the winning point this was a pulsating, roller coaster of a game in Lismore on Saturday evening. What the game lacked in quality it certainly made up for in excitement and drama.
In the opening quarter, Ballyduff set the pace, scoring 6 points, mostly frees. Tallow conceded far too many frees overall (around 19 in total) and I suppose you can draw a few conclusions from this. Tallow replied with a point from Ryan Grey (the first of 6 from play he contributed in total) and a goal from Mark O Brien, to keep Ballyduff in check. Mark’s goal came at the end of a surging solo run through the Ballyduff rearguard which somehow ended up in the net. Speechless! Ballyduff led by 0-6 to 1-1 after 15 minutes and were hurling well. Tallow never settled into any routine as the Village piled on the pressure to lead by 5 points at the break.
Ballyduff were again the more purposeful in the second half as they notched up the scores. Goals at crucial times kept Tallow in this game and Thomas Ryan netted our second as the full time whistle beckoned. I lost track of scorers as the game increased in intensity but Thomas Ryan had a final tally of 1-12 from frees and open play. The score at the end of full time was Tallow 2-17 Ballyduff 1-20. The game went into extra time. Tallow’s third goal came from Jordan Henley. Ballyduff were undaunted and pushed on again. With around 5 minutes remaining in the second half of extra time they had accrued a three point lead. With some exceptions, Tallow had not hurled well and the game now looked beyond them. They showed remarkable resilience and character throughout and especially in the last 5 minutes. They kept their heads and nailed on 4 points to scrape through to the quarter final where the meet Abbeyside in Fraher Field on Sat 25th August at 7pm.

U15 COUNTY FINAL
On last Saturday morning our U15s travelled to Dunhill to play the County final against St.Mollerans. Conditions were very wet and it wasn't to be our day, losing in the end on a score line of 3.11 to 7 points. Well done to our boys, they battled very well through a very tough game.
