Highfield 7 – Thurles 12.
Thurles travelled to Highfield on a wet dreary day last Saturday. Thurles had an extremely slow start in the first ten minutes allowing Highfield to score first to put Thurles 18s 7 nil down. Thurles seemed to have the majority of the possession for the rest of the first half but mistake after mistake cost them and they ended up going in 7 nil down at halftime.
Thurles scored early in the second half threw winger Brian O Connell to put the score 7- 5. The game was evenly match over the next 15 minutes before Thurles broke down the middle of the pitch with some great hands between forwards & backs alike , before man of the match Ciaran Murphy scored in the corner which Paddy McGrath duly converted. Thurles held on for a hard fought win.
Well done boys.
