JB Hurling Championship V Lismire

Yesterday Millstreet defeated Lismire in a keenly contested Duhallow Junior B Hurling Championship in Millstreet Town Park by a scoreline of 2-7 to 0-9.

A tough but low scoring first half saw the teams deadlocked at four points a piece at half time. The heavy rain over the previous few days meant that the ball was slow to move along the ground, but Millstreet appeared to have the upper hand when the ball was off the ground and should have been ahead at the half. The start of the second half saw Millstreet move two points ahead, but then struck the killer blow with a goal and two points in quick succession seeming to secure the match. In the last few minutes Lismire tagged over three points, but it was not enough to overcome a competent Millstreet side.

They move onto the semi-final where they will meet Dromtarriffe (again) who they beat in the first round, but have been automatically byed in the semi final! Only in Duhallow. More pictures below:
