U21 semi-final awaits after hard fought victory
J.J Kavanagh and Sons U21 A Hurling Championship (Quarter Final B)
Saturday, 27th November. Venue: Palmerstown
O’Loughlin Gaels 0-13
Home advantage proved crucial as Dicksboro overcame a fierce challenge from rivals O’Loughlin Gaels at a bitterly cold Palmerstown on Saturday.
In the final quarter, the ‘Boro sprung a few subs from their bench, and the introduction of fresh legs certainly helped them overturn a 3-point deficit and run-out 2-point winners.
The game was feisty at times, and neither side took a backwards step as things heated up, both on the pitch and on the sideline!
O’Loughlin’s will rue many missed chances, but the substitutions for the home side provided the impetus for the comeback and secured a semi-final berth.
