County Hurlers and Footballers

Monday, March 18, 2013

Saturday 16th March was another busy day for our County teams. The Senior Footballers travelled to Clones to take on Monaghan in Division 3 of the Allianz National Football League. Unfortunately, the Garden County, with Luke Benson at full-back, came out on the wrong side of a high scoring tie, eventually losing on a scoreline of Monaghan 5-13 Wicklow 3-10. 
Fresh from their superb win over neighbours Kildare in Croke Park last weekend, the Senior Hurlers made the long trip to Austin Stack Park in Tralee for their Allianz National Hurling League Division 2A game against Kerry. In a game marred by poor refereeing, the home side edged a closely fought contest by the narrowest of margins, Kerry 1-12 Wicklow 3-5. Mikey Lee and John Henderson started for the visitors who face Westmeath in Aughrim as part of a double header next weekend when the footballers also face Cavan.
