CAR­LOW WICK­LOW 1-21 1-10

THE Wick­low Mi­nor hurlers made it two wins from two in the celtic Chal­lenge last week as they took on a strong Car­low side on Wed­nes­day night in Fe­nagh Cen­ter of Ex­cel­lence (Car­low).

The Gar­den County hurlers got off the mark early with a point from team cap­tain David Maloney.

A sec­ond fol­lowed by his club and county team­mate Rory lamb Wick­low’s be­fore Car­low got one of their own.

The Car­low for­wards seemed to be dom­i­nat­ing for the ma­jor­ity of the first half but the brav­ery of the Wick­low men proved too much as they did enough to hold out the strong at­tack­ing for­ward lines from the home team.

The de­liv­ery of ball to the Wick­low for­wards was the key through­out the game, mak­ing use of the speedy in­side line.

At the break, the Wick­low hurlers led the home side by 0-12 to 0-6.

Some ques­tion­able ref­er­ee­ing de­ci­sions be­gan to frus­trate the blues, al­low­ing the Car­low men to get the up­per hand for a brief pe­riod.

But some fan­tas­tic in­di­vid­ual per­for­mances across the field raised the hearts of th­ese young men who fin­ished strong on a score of Wick­low 1-21, Car­low 1-10.

Bray Em­mets’ Rory Lambe picked up the Man of the Match award after a su­perb dis­play through­out.
