Senior Hurling: Bruree’s Senior hurlers travelled to Clarina on Friday evening to play Na Piarsaigh in the third round of the county championship. While we saw some good hurling from Bruree in spells, loss of focus on a number of occasions let the opposition in for vital scores. With almost twenty five minutes gone in the opening half, Bruree led by 0-8 to 0-3 and were well worth that lead. However, the closing minutes of the half saw Na Piarsaigh capitalise on Bruree lack of concentration and saw them run into a 2-6 to 0-8 lead. Bruree’s first half scores came from Gerard O’Brien, Michael Lane, Paddy Kelly (2), Jimmy O’Dea and Dessie Lenihan, all from play and a free and a sixty five from Gerard O’Dea. Bruree started off well in the second half and points from play from Kieran O’Dea and james V. O’Brien and from a free from Gerard O’Dea saw the gap close to just two points. But a goal for Na Piarsaigh on thirteen minutes spelt the end of Bruree’s chances and with Bruree reduced to thirteen, the writing was on the wall. Bruree could only manage two more points one from play from Paddy Kelly and one from a free from Stephen O’Halloran. Bruree again showed patches of good hurling throughout the second half but these yielded little by way of scores and it was Na Piarsaigh who won on a 3-12 to 0-13 scoreline. Bruree were short a number of influential players and one wonders what the result might have been had these been available. The Bruree team was Eamon Sexton, Vincent Stanton, Kieran O’Rourke, John Paul Murphy, Stephen O’Halloran, Gerard O’Brien, Dessie LenihanMichael Lane, James V. O’Brien, Gerard O’Dea, Jimmy O’Dea, Paddy Kelly, Anthony O’Shea, Kieran O’Dea and Brendan Hogan.
