AF­TER a su­perb team per­for­mance, Glenville claimed the Al­lianz DH5 hurl­ing ti­tle with a win over Bal­li­nadee at Páirc Uí Rinn.

A su­perb game of hurl­ing in the first half saw Glenville lead 1-4 to 1-1 at the break. Liam Fo­ley opened the scor­ing in the first minute as he struck over from long range.

This was fol­lowed with a goal from Ross Hen­nessy whose long range ef­fort hit the back of the net. Two su­perb saves from the Bal­li­nadee keeper David Hickey kept the score at bay while at the other end Fionn Fitzger­ald de­nied the im­pres­sive Michael Maguire of clos­ing the gap with a su­perb save. Conor Crow­ley who was su­perb through­out got Bal­li­nadee’s first score of the game as he pointed over from a tight an­gle. How­ever, Glenville got the next three scores as Dar­ragh Collins (0-1) and the ex­cel­lent Michael O’Driscoll (0-2) made it 1-4 to 1-1. Glenville be­gan the sec­ond half as they fin­ished the first with the pacy Jack Couni­han watched his long range ef­fort be­ing tipped over by the keeper.

Daniel Coak­ley did point over for Bal­li­nadee, how­ever, this was soon fol­lowed by an- other su­perb score from Michael O’Driscoll.
