Faughs come good in second half

Antrim Hurling League Division 2

Carey 2-17 Glenariffe 1-12

Wednesday April 20 @ St Patricks Park

Carey Faughs fought back from 1-6 to 0-2 behind to score a comprehensive win over Glenariffe Oisins in Wednesday evening’s Division 2 league game in Ballyvoy.

Osins started off in this tense and bruising encounter as though they wanted to put the game to bed early, leading 1-6 to 0-2 at the end of the first quarter, their goal coming from Alex O Boyle. However the home team gradually worked their way into the game,  with Conleth McKinley and John McBride being a constant threat and Conor McBride making inroads to the Glensmen’s lead. Alex O ‘Boyle kept the Osins in front with his deadly accuracy from frees, but the score that Carey needed came from Patrick McBride when he flicked a dropping ball past Paul McMullan in the Osins goal to level the game on the 25th minute, Michael Gettins and O’Boyle edged the visitors ahead to leave their side leading by 1-9 to 1-7 at the break.
