Shamrocks Ballyhale created history by claiming their fifth St Canice’s Credit Union senior hurling title in a row on Sunday by sweeping to a 2-11 to 1-21 victory over James Stephens. The opening stages of the game were a tit for tat battle, but Shamrocks began to assert their authority in the second quarter, Shamrocks heading down the tunnel at half time with a four point lead.
On the restart James Stephens try as they might couldn’t close that gap and Shamrocks drove home their advantage and eventually ran out 2-11 to 1-21 winners. Continuing the trend TJ Reid claimed the TG4/St Canice’s Credit Union Man of the Match award.
