Limerick lose opener in Munster u17 Hurling Competition

Limerick were beaten comprehensively by 0-16 to 0-6 against a strong Cork side in the opening round of the Munster u17 Hurling Competition last night in the Gaelic Grounds.

To be fair to Limerick, Cork flew out of the traps and never really gave the Treatysiders any time to settle. This was reflected in the scoreline as Cork lead by three points to no score after only 5 minutes.

Limerick simply could not stop the Cork momentum and by the time Josh Considine opened Limerick’s account in the 20th minute Cork had registered 7 of their own.

Seanie O’Connor got the next score for Limerick before the break to leave the scores 0-7 to 0-2 at the half time whistle.

Limerick would have hoped to build on these two scores after the interval, but all momentum was lost within the first minute as Seanie O’Leary was shown a red card.

Dave Cuddy tried to reinvigorate his depleted side but Cork ran out convincing winners in the end tagging on a further 9 scores while Limerick could only muster four in reply.

SCORERS: Cork: Colin O’Brien 0-6 (0-5 frees) Tommy O’Connell 0-5, Declan Hanlon 0-3, Joe  Stack, Kian Farmer 0-1 each. Limerick: Seanie O’Connor 0-4 (0-4 frees) Josh Considine (free), Mark McCarthy 0-1 each
