9th April @ Ardclough
Senior Hurling League Div.1 Rd. 2
Ardclough claimed their first league win of the season with an impressive five point win over Naas at home, with corner-forward Paul Fitzgerald scoring an impressive 1-10.
It was however Naas who started the brighter racing into a two point lead before the home side responded. Tony Spain notched up his first score after ten minutes, after five early Ardclough wides.
A minute later Paul Fitzgerald opened his account and he then went on to score another 1-06 in the first half including a classy goal before the break, which was brilliantly set-up by Colm Buggy.
Naas responded with points from Seán Gainey and Paul Sullivan to leave the half time score at Ardclough 1-11 Naas 0-5.
After the break Ardclough started brightly again with the ever lively Paul Fitzgerald adding two more points.
Naas then played their way into the game with a period of domination in which they score 1-04 without reply.
Ardclough hit back with points by Brendan Byrne and Fitzgerald. In truth the home team always had something to spare and Naas could not close the gap any further as Ardclough ran out victors by 5 points.
