After a good though goal less victory against the Rapps in our last outing the requirement from this game was a stylish performance which would include the scoring of goals.
First Half: Although it took ten minutes for the boys to settle , it was obvious from an early stage that we had the upper hand in this encounter. From the first score, a well-taken 65 by Aidan Cash, we were never headed. Our forwards combined well  and showed good movement off the ball to create space for each other. Stephen  and Dean Corrigan were pacy and threatening in the full-forward line while outside of them the lively Glen Murphy played his best game in a long time. 
Half-time score: Shels 3-7: Glynn 0-5.
Second half: James Gordon opened the scoring with a fine individual goal, and then retired injured. Midfield continued to function well, with Johnny Campbell and Feargal Hynes  holding strong. Brian Murphy moved out to centre-forward and moved very well onto every breaking ball. Although it was one-sided game we must mention our half-back line who laid the foundations for victory with a rock-solid performance. Niall Murphy was sound at all times. Shane Griffith had a very difficult assignment in marking the brilliant Gary Moore but stuck to his task and made Gary’s life very difficult.  Aidan Cash gave an exhibition of centre-back hurling, playing skillful intelligent hurling throughout.  AJ Lehane grew into the game at corner-back and showed plenty of the hurling of which he’s capable. Well done to all  who played.
Full-time score: Shels 5-13 ; Glynn : 0-9.
