Report from John Tarrant

Millstreet delivered a terrific display of passion and pride to lift the Co. U14 B Hurling Championship title after overcoming Ballinhassig 2-15 to 3-4 in Blarney last evening.

Laced with surperb skill and brilliant touches, Millstreet allowed their hurling do the talking over the hour. Indeed a highly motivated Millstreet took control of the proceedings from an early stage and availed on the accuracy of Seán Óg O’Connor and Thomas Walsh to shoot pointed frees.

Ballinhassig managed to find their footing and a goal cut the arrears 0-7 to 1-2 at the break. Three Millstreet points upon the resumption were cancelled out by another Ballinhassig goal.
