Our competitive action began on Saturday v Portaferry. An excellent match was played out with both teams playing a great brand of hurling. The first half saw both teams exchange score for score and at the end of it  Portaferry were2 points up. The second half was played in a similar vein. There were great displays of hurling skills from both sets of Players. The match finished with Portaferry edging home by a 2-11 to 1-9 score line. Our next league game sees us travelling to Bredagh. The match will take place on Saturday the 24th of March. Training sessions continue as arranged.
