Senior Hurlers secure draw against Carnew

25 August, 2013

The Senior Hurlers faced Carnew in the Championship in Arklow on Sunday, 25th August in the second last group stage game.  Eoin Mason opened the Emmets account with an early free however not much separated the teams in the first half.  A new look full back line worked hard and defended well.  Frees from Mason and two scores from play from full forward Brian Duggan made it five points apiece at the break.
Emmets started the second half with a score from Christy Moorehouse settling the team down.  However, Carnew soon goaled and added on a few scores to create a worrying lead.  Emmets remained calm and heads never dropped. Substitute Jim Doyle brought them right back into the game with a bullet of a shot to the Carnew goal.  Mororehouse converted a fee and a score from play from Daire Lohan brought Emmets to within a point. As the time quickly ran out and with Carnew still ahead by a point Emmets sought a final score. With only a few seconds left centre back John Henderson gained possession.  Fresh from his travels in the US, he blasted a high ball straight over the bar securing a draw. The last game in the group stages of the championship is next weekend against St Patrick’s Wicklow Town.  All support is appreciated.
