New York GAA report: Galway hurlers claim victory over Long Island
Galway 3-16 Long Island Gaels 2-18
In a close encounter of the hurling kind, Galway did just enough to get the points against a Long Island side that made them work all the way. Galway had jumped into a three point lead before LIG replied with 1-02 with Slevin driving the goal home when Shane Minton set him up.
Galway did have their best period in the aftermath as they replied with three points and then had a brilliant Cormac Murphy goal when he soled in on the right wing. They followed with five of the next six scores but the key difference was a second Long Island major when Bernie Dea found the net from 21 yards out.
The losers also added four points to close out the half to move into a 2-10 to 1-11 lead. Galway were back in it however when they had a goal, from a penalty top open the second half when Martin Dolphin was fouled. Both sides added points and with fifteen minutes left it was 2-14 to 2-13 for LIG. Cormac Murphy again showed his ability however when he scored his second goal of the game and the Tribe were able to hang on for the victory.
