Minor Hurling: Dominics u14 hurlers travelled to Woodmount to take on Pearses, they had overcome four Four Roads with a 2 point win the previous week, they had another big battle with Pearses. A good gesture from the referee as he spoke to both sides before he threw the ball in. It was Dominics who got the good start with a goal and could have capitalised more with the amount of possession they had in the first period. Half time score Pearse 2-1 Dominics 2-0. The momentum was with the home side in second half as they scored two quick goals, with Dominic s had to work extremely hard to stay in the game. They were awarded a free in the final minute in which they got the goal to end in a draw. Final score Pearses 4-1. St. Dominics 3-4. Team: J.Tieran, C.Fagan, R.Gately, S.Craven, K.Morris, J.Fagan, K.Reynolds, K.Doyle, G.Martin, D.O’Brien, C. McCormack, R. O’Keeffe, K.Kelly, M.Byrne, M.Watson.
