Minor hurlers lose to Glynn by smallest margin, 1-03 to 0-05.
The Shels Minor Hurlers played their first game of the Championship on Sunday 10/3 in near arctic conditions in Glynn. Missing several of their up to age players through injury and illness Shels set to the field with quiet a young team who proved that they were well up for the hard battle that is Minor Championship Hurling.
Playing into a strong wind and up the hill Shels found it hard to make any headway against a battling Glynn. They only had one scoreable chance that was put wide in the first half while it took Glynn 17 minutes to register their first point and eventually go in at the break 1 02
It took 5 minutes into the second half before Shels had their first score of the game a point from a free by Simon Donohoe who had put one wide before this and it was all Shels from there on, another point from a free and one from play by Simon Donohoe and 2 from frees for Michael Feeney was all that Shels could muster in a game that was riddled by throw-ins. Glynn only managed one point in the second half but that was enough to see them take the points. The Minor Hurlers next game is at home in Hollymount on Bank Holiday Monday 18th March at 11 am.
