Conor McGurk Cup Hurling at QUB
QUB 5-24 Louth 2-9
Hosts QUB qualified for the semi-final of the McGurk Cup when they had too much power for Louth in Tueday evening’s first round game at the Dub Arena.
Queens, with a good sprinkling of Antrim players on show, dominated the opening half and were ahead by 3-15 to 0-6 at the break, the pick of the goals coming from corner forward Sean Hughes.
After the change of ends Louth showed much better and they grabbed two goals through substitute Padraig Fallon. However their hosts hit two at the other end and ended up convincing winners as they set a quarter-final, against Down at the same venue on Saturday.
