Araglin go on scoring spree to see off Belgooly in Co JBHC

Araglin 3-21 Belgooly 2-8

Araglin Junior B hurlers went on a scoring spree on Saturday evening when they were convincing winners over Belgooly.

From the start the winners gained control in the half-back line and midfield sectors. Their attack in regular supply took some good scores.

By the end of the first quarter Araglin were 0-10 to 0- 0 clear after a succession of points by Tom Kenneally (3) James Kearney, Shay Russell and Tom Browne (2) each and Dave Browne.

Belgooly lacked penetration up front, but Neil O'Sullivan and Sean Kiely were on target midway through the half. By the 21st minute James Kearney had a goal for the winners who led 1-11 to 0-3. Both sides exchanged points with Araglin 1-15 to 0-5 clear at the break.

Sean Kiely pointed for the South East side on the restart. However Araglin continued to dictate matters.

They had a goal by Aaron Hegarty after good work by Seamie O'Gorman 2-15 to 0- 5.

Kieran Kiely pointed for Belgooly. Araglin continued to do well. In the last quarter Belgooly made a number of attacks on the Araglin defence in search of goals.

They found it hard to make any progress but two goals by Cuan Tobin put a respectable look on the scoreboard at the final whistle.
