A young Galway side overturned a six-point half time deficit to record back-to-back wins in the Walsh Cup.

Played in inclement weather in Ballinasloe, Sean McInerney impressed for the Tribesmen with 1-3 on his first start for Michael O'Donoghue's side to help his side build on the facile win over DIT last weekend.

The eventual winners played into the element in the opening half and trailed by 0-11 to 0-5 at the interval.

The gulf in class became evident in the second half with Galway scoring 1-12 on the bounce to end the contest.

McInerney's goal came in the 69th minute.
