Tir na nOg dig deep to grind out win

0R6A6954All County Hurling League Division 2

Tír na nÓg 1.16   St. Galls 0.16

Tir Na nOg continued their climb away from the danger zone in the ACHL Division 2 and following a hard fought victory in Armoy on Sunday they looked to have a difficult fixture when St. Gall’s visited Whitehill on Wednesday night.

They looked to be in trouble when the visitors from Milltown led by three points with ten minutes remaining and the momentum seemed to be firmly with St. Gall’s at this stage of the game as they attempted to get back on the winning rostrum following their defeat in Waterfoot on Sunday.

Tir na nOg have shown a lot of character this year and it was that character and never say die attitude that shone through in the closing stages with Sean Duffin hitting a number of excellent long range frees to snatch a fine victory.

As on Sunday, Kevin Sheerin was very much to the fore for the winners and top scored with 1-7 to add to Sean Duffin’s tally of 0-4 with Ciaran McKeown 0-3 and Ciaran Logan completing the scoring for the Randalstown side.
