CAREY BROTHERS LEAD SEVEN GOAL JUNIORS TO LANDSLIDE WIN
JJ Kavanagh & Sons Junior A Hurling League Round 2
Young Irelands Gowran 7-22
Carrickshock 1-15

The Young Irelands Junior A hurlers got their season off to a superb start following a 25-point annihilation of Carrickshock on Sunday, as the Carey brothers Dylan & Killian led the way with a combined total of 4-12.
Dylan scored 3-7(0-4 frees), while Killian’s 1-5 included three long distance frees.
The opening quarter was even with Carrickshock leading 1-4 to 1-3 as Dylan scored the first of his goals early on, but once Killian pounced for Young Irelands second goal in the 20th minute they took control afterwards, and they led 2-10 to 1-7 at half-time with Gavin Manning, Jimmy Lennon & Diarmuid Langton also on target.
The trio in particular were central to Young Irelands resounding victory.
Diarmuid – a minor last year – was exceptionally dominant in midfield as his driving runs caused Carrickshock endless amount of problems, with Jimmy Lennon’s grafting providing the perfect back-up.
Gavin Manning operating at centre-forward scored 0-3 from play, while his general play all round was superb as he often dropped back to play the quarter-back role to perfection. He was the perfect playmaker.
Daniel Manning grabbed himself a brace of goals early in the second-half as Young Irelands put the match beyond Carrickshock’s reach. 4-10 to 1-8.
Another of last years minors Ben Phelan came to the fore during the second-half as he scored 1-3, with the goal coming in the 41st minute.
Young Irelands 6th goal in the 50th minute was a spectacular effort from distance by Dylan Carey, before Dylan completed his hat-trick of goals & Young Irelands 7th overall in injury-time.
Davy Holland also got his name on the scoresheet after coming on as a substitute.
The most perfect start for The Young Irelands Junior A team & the perfect second-half performance which was the equivalent of a high snooker break at the ongoing World Snooker Championships in The Crucible.
Young Irelands didn’t shoot a single wide – 8 wides in 1st half – in the second-half & they scored 5-12 with almost every shot on goal ending in a score.
Meanwhile, the Young Irelands Junior F team bounced back from the disappointment of losing to Mullinavat with a convincing 4-15 to 0-9 win in Carrigeen last Friday night.

YOUNG IRELANDS SCORERS V CARRICKSHOCK: Dylan Carey 3-7 (0-4 frees), Killian Carey 1-5 (0-3 frees), Ben Phelan 1-3, Daniel Manning 2-0, Gavin Manning 0-3, Jimmy Lennon 0-2, Diarmuid Langton & Davy Holland 0-1 each
