Na Piarsaigh got the defence of the Bon Secours Limerick SHC back on track with a resounding 6-15 to 2-11 win over Kilmallock at the LIT Gaelic Grounds.

Michael Ryan’s side led 4-5 to 1-8 at the break thanks to two goals from Peter Casey and one each from Will Henn and Conor Boylan. Paudie O’Brien provided Kilmallock’s goal.

He didn’t take long to bag a second three pointer to put his side seven clear with just over 10 minutes on the clock.

Kilmallock’s response to the second goal was impressive with Robbie Henley and Kevin O’Donnell points followed up by O’Brien’s goal.

Kilmallock then hit the front through an O’Donnell long range point, but Na Piarsiagh hit back to lead 4-5 to 1-8 at half time thanks to Casey and Henn goals.

Casey began the half with two points in response to a Gavin O’Mahony free. Dowling, David Dempsey and Casey points then put Na Piarsaigh 4-10 to 1-10 in front.

Oisin O’Reilly then bagged a goal for the Balbec, but efforts from Ryan and Dowling saw Na Piarsaigh to an impressive win.
