Loreto College Coleraine 5-5  St. Columb’s College Derry 6-22

The senior hurling team produced a battling and spirited display in defeat to a very strong St. Columb’s side at Owenbeg. The first quarter was quite close in terms of possession and the score line, however, backed by a strong breeze, a period of dominance from the Derry outfit in the 10 minutes leading up to half-time opened up a 13-point lead at the break, which, despite the best of efforts, Loreto could not claw back in the second period. On another day, this could have been a much closer contest if the Coleraine school had been able to field its strongest team and this gives reason to be optimistic for the remainder of the competition. Well done to both teams for contributing to a high scoring game which was good to watch.
