All County Hurling League Division 2
Carey 3-28 Randalstown 0-8
This championship rehearsal turned out to be a rather one sided affair. With the Whitehall men having one eye on the forthcoming football championship they travelled with a severely depleted side and now find themselves in the dreaded relegation area of the table. Despite facing the strong breeze carey found themselves 2.12 to 0.5 ahead at the break with scores coming from Sean mc laughlin 2.1 James black 0.4 john McBride 0.1 Gerald McBride 0.1 martin hunter 0.2 Mick McVeigh 0.2 and Doug McCauley 0.1 while tony martin, Neill Shannon, and Sean Duffin tagged on the Tir na nÓg scores.
The second half was a repeat of the first with the aid of the breeze, the rampant Faughs even took the luxury of resting James Black after 50 minutes . Carey scorers in this half were James Black 0.3 Sean McLaughlin 0.3 Mick McVeigh 0.1, Fichra McVeigh 0.2, Gerald McBride 0.2, Martin Hunter 1.0, Doug McCauley 0.3 Nat Hunter 0.1 and Chris Butler 0.1. Carey had an impressive ten players on the scoresheet.
Tir na nÓg had Ronan O’Neill and Tony Martin 2 points on target in the second half. No doubt the forthcoming championship semi will see a much stronger Randalstown team on show.
