Junior Hurling Final
Bronx goes Back to Back
Bronx 3-09 Hoboken 1-11
The Bronx took home their second junior title in a row with a trilling performance where keeper Eddie Hogan was outstanding and Sean Purcell got all the important scores up front. They were behind 0-06 to 1-00 after 20 minutes with their goal arriving in the second minute but responded with a closing salvo of 1-02 in the first half. After they extended their lead with a Purcell free, the game was score for score with both sides adding points leaving the game still in the balance at 2-06 to 0-11 with 14 minutes left. They were all Bronx as the side added 1-03 with Purcell again rattling the net to put distance between the sides at 3-08 to 0-11. Conor McInerney did have a consolation goal for Hoboken but they needed more and their main forward weapon Paul Loughnane was lost to injury in the first half.
