Premier U-21 Hurling Game of 2020 – Garryspillane v Na Piarsaigh – Quarter Final

Garryspillane came out on top of an extra time thriller against Na Piarsaigh in the second Premier U-21 Hurling Championship quarter-final.

Patrickswell saw off Ahane’s challenge earlier in the day at the LIT Gaelic Grounds as competitive hurling returned on August 19th following the initial Covid-19 lockdown.

The Bouncers came into the game with Na Piarsaigh as favourites but were met with an almighty effort from the city side. (Match Highlights via the link below)

Garryspillane held a 0-12 to 0-8 lead at the break but Na Piarsaigh fought back to level at 0-14 apiece with six of the next eight scores after the restart.

The game swung Garryspillane’s way once more with Dylan O’Shea leading the way and they held a four point advantage going into added time.

However, Adam McNamara’s goal gave Na Piarsaigh some hope and a stunning Calvin Moran point from the wing forced extra time.

Garryspillane regained their composure to lead 0-27 to 1-19 at half time of extra time but back came Na Piarsaigh once more through Emmet McEvoy’s goal. The goal put just one point between the sides once more.

Ryan Tobin then popped up with the insurance point for Garryspillane and they held out for a 0-30 to 2-22 victory that saw them earn a last four spot against Doon.

Notable mentions:

Patrickswell 0-21 – 1-16 Mungret St Pauls – semi final
