SHL Round 4
9th May @ Ardclough
Naas 2-15 Ardclough 2-06
Naas put in strong performance to win away to Ardclough in the Senior Hurling League.
This deferred round 4 clash, which originally fell foul of a waterlogged pitch on the 1st of May, was dominated much by Naas in the opening half.
Aided by a strong wind in the first half, they used it to their advantage, outscoring Ardclough 0-09 to 1-01 by half-time, with Tony Spain getting the goal.
Ardclough were much improved in the 2nd half and were hurling well, cutting the gap to two points, until a late rally by Naas saw them stretch their advantage two nine points by full-time, thanks to goals from Peadar Downey and Tom Ryan and six scorers in all making up Naas’s 2-15 total.
Best for Naas: Mark Carter, John O’Malley, Paul Sullivan, Mick Purcell, Conor O’Hehir and Tom Ryan
Best for Ardclough: Mark Lynam, Seán Buggle, Robbie Spain, Daragh Walsh and Tony Spain.
