Dunloy 6-11 Ard Na Rí 2-10

Dunloy booked their place in the final of the Under 15 A Hurling Championship when they came from behind at half time to beat Ard Na Rí in Tuesday evening’s semi-final at Pearse Park.

In the opening quarter Ard Na Rí had the better of things and led by 1-3 to 0-3 at one stage, the goal coming from Ronan Taylor. Dunloy corner forward Daire Elliott got a goal to level matters on 16 minutes and full forward Jay McAlonan put them ahead with another goal soon afterwards. The young Cuchullains looked strong, but a a goal and two points from Taylor swung the game back in the visitors favour and they went in at the break with a four point cushion.

A pointed free from Dunloy full forward Jay McAlonan early in the second half, plus a goal by substitute Jack McQuillan had Dunloy level and they hit the front when McAlonan got his team fourth goal of the game.

Further goals followed from midfielder James McGarry, whose long free went all the way to the net, and centre forward Anthony Cochrane who broke through on the right and crashed a shot in off the inside of the far post, and there was no way back for the visitors.

Dunloy go forward to play St Enda’s in next week’s final, the Glengormley boys beating Loughgiel in high scoring semi-final at Hightown.
