McQuillan’s 3rds won Section 1 of the P5&6 North Antrim Indoor Hurling tournament at the Seven Towers Leisure Centre on Sunday, the Ballycastle boys just getting the better of a very good Michael Davitt’s Swatragh side by 3 goals to 2, the goals coming from Patrick Campbell, Matthew Donnelly and Peter Laverty. Campbell and Laverty had given the ‘Town’ a 2-0 lead but just before half time the Swatragh boys pulled one back from a penalty. Laverty put Ballycastle back in front early in the second half, but Swatragh hit back almost immediately to leave just one in it again. It was tough and intense in the final minutes but McQuillan’s managed to hold out to take the title.
In a great day’s hurling Eoghan Rua Coleraine captured the Section 2 title with a 5-0 win over Naomh Padraig while Section 3 was claimed by Kickhams Creggan who beat McQuillan’s 2nds by 6 goals to nil with a terrific display.
Omagh St Enda’s hit five goals in their final win over Oisins Glenariffe in the Section 4 final while in the Section 5 decider, the first final of the day, Tir na nÓg of Randalstown beat Eoghan Ruadh Dungannon 4ths by 5 goals to 4 in a really tight game.
