Intermediate Hurlers get first Win

Our Intermediate hurlers recorded their first victory of the Nick Green Sponsored Intermediate Hurling Championship by virtue of a good if not controversial 1 point victory over Dromcollogher Broadford palyed in Croagh on Sunday evening.
Playing with the strong breeze in the first half the lads hurled well with some great scores taken.
Points from Jerome Boylan, David Sheppard and Reuben MCarthy had us in an early lead and futhter Sheppy scores had us 6 to 1 in front. 
A long delievery from Mark Ryan fell kindly to David Sheppard who dispatched low to the net to open an 6 points gap and one which would last until half time and a scoreline of 1-12 to 1-6
The second half we got points from Reuben McCarthy, Mark Ryan, Neil O Gorman and Sheppy to stretched our lead to 8points.
However Drom weren’t lying down and 2 quick fire goals had them right back in the contest.
With time fast approaching the finish we tacked on 2 points from John Madden and minor Ger Kearns which untimately proved to be the winning one.
On the final whistle the referee deemed the game a draw much to the annoyance of the Na Piarsaigh crowd.
However common sense shown through and a recount from the referee and the scoreline ended
Na Piarsaigh 1-18 Dromcollogher Broadford 3-11
