Intermediate Hurling League – Aghada – 2-18 v Valley Rovers 1-12, Brinny 7/8/2017
Our intermediate hurlers got a great game under their belt in preparation for the upcoming championship clash with Kildorrery, when they faced premier intermediate team Valley Rovers in the league on Bank holiday Monday last. A great team performance saw Aghada run out comfortable winners on the day. Will Leahy and John Looney both goaled inside the opening 6 minutes, and with Leahy particularly impressive over the hour, it was a lead Aghada never gave up. At half time it was 2-6 v 0-7. Despite Rovers raising a green flag of their own 2 minutes after the restart to reduce the lead to just 3 points, Aghada would go on to dominate the second period and run out winners by 9 points in the end.
