Our Under 16's had an excellent win over Moycarkey/Borris in the Mid hurling final which was played in Littleton on Saturday. Though we had the first score of the game, it was Moycarkey who settled faster and they opened up a 4 point lead by the fifteenth minute. However a Liam McCormack goal got us going and we finished the first half strongly to lead by 1 10 to 1 07 at the interval. We continued our good form after the break and goals from Darragh Stakelum and McCormack again put us in a very strong position. In fairness to Moycarkey  they battled back to reduce the margin to six, but our forwards kept the scoreboard ticking over, while our defence was very tenacious in their tackling and we eventually ran out winners by 3 18 to 2 14. After the game the cup was presented to winning captain Jack Lanigan.
