Athlone 1-12  Tubberclair 1-8


Athlone minors scored an impressive victory over a dogged Tubberclair side in the minor club championship quarter final played in windy conditions in Tubberclair last Thursday evening.

Playing with the benefit of a strong wind in the 1st half Athlone ran up a 9 point lead at half time with 4 points from Richie Greene (2 from frees), points from Ray Connellan, Seamus Byrne and Charlie McMickan and a spectacular goal from Aidan Byrne. Tubberclair made an impressive start to the second half cutting the Athlone lead to only 2 points within 10 minutes but Athlone fought back with great spirit and tenacity with scores from Ray Connellan, Jordan Marshment, Aidan Byrne and 2 from Richie Greene.  Athlone were completely on top for the last 10 minutes of the match and ran out convincing winners in the end.
