Ryan Cusack Memorial Cup

Our Under 13 hurlers took to the field in Boher on Saturday 2/9/17 in the Ryan Cusack Memorial Cup to take on our visiting teams of Ahane, Newport and Durlas Og of Thurles. The first match was against Newport where our lads had a blistering start leading 1-6 to 0-0 at half time. The second half ended 1-2 each with our lads winning the game 2-8 to 1-2. Our next game was against Ahane. Ahane put in a spirited display in the first half but our lads rallied in the second half winning on a scoreline of 3-6 to 0-0. As Durlas Og had won both their first matches also the third round robin game was played as the final. Durlas og were a very well drilled team with fantastic hurlers. The first half ended 1-2 to 1-1 in our favour but we had to face the second half playing into the wind. The young Murroe Boher lads worked hard in the second half and despite a late goal from Durlas Og in injury time our lads had enough done and won the game by a point 2-3 to 2-2. The cup was presented to winning captain Euan Sheridan by the Cusack family. This was the first time Murroe/Boher had won this competition. Newport were the shield winners with player of the tournament going to Daniel Rossiter of Durlas Og. Many thanks to all who helped out on the day with teas coffee bbq pitch preparation and for the fine spread of food for all our visitors.
