Our junior hurlers took on a very resilient Tallow team in the final group game of the junior ( senior attached ) championship in Tourin last Friday evening. with Tallow alreay exiting the championship local pride was at stake here and they certainly put it up to Lismore in the early stage's of the match. tallow raced into the lead scoring five unanswered points from play and frees before a fortuitous goal by Robert Troy brought us back into the game. Some nice Passages of play from both sides ended the half with Tallow been ahead by two pts. On resumption of play momentum swung Lismore's way as we began to dominate play and another goal by joint Captain David Smith put us in the driving seat. However, Tallow not to be out done struck for three more pts and for the last ten mins Lismore's defence had to withstand a number of efforts by Tallow to get the goal they needed. It never came and Lismore held on for a memorable victory on a scoreline of Lismore 2-13 allow 1 - 14. We now play neighbours Ballyduff in the Semi Final. Well done to all involved.

Our Junior team faced a much fancied Abbeyside second string outfit in perfect conditions at a sun drenched Cappoquin venue on Sun morning last. It was nip and tuck for the first quarter with both sides exchanging some fine scores both from frees and play. Abbeyside converted two unanswered frees and then struck for their first goal at the stroke of half time to leave them 5 pts ahead going into the interval. On resumption of play, Lismore struck for their third goal of the day to leave them trailing by just 2 pts and suddenly found themselves back in the game. Momentum swung Abbeyside's way again as they found range from both frees and play. However, our lads were not found wanting and struck again for their fourth goal of the morning leaving them 5pts adrift. Abbeyside's strength and depth won out on the day but Lismore can be proud of this performance. Final score on the day Abbeyside 2 - 19 Lismore 4 - 09. Final group game of the Junior ( senior attached ) Championship is on this FRIDAY evening V Tallow at Tourin @ 7.30 p.m. Your support would be appreciated on the night for the lads.
