Portland Hurling Club Junior C team travelled to Philly as runners up of the Northeast junior C hurling championship. The boys from Maine traveled with just one sub, and were also missing some key players who could not make the trip. The Mainers went down on Friday to a strong team from Indy, which pushed the Mainers into the shield competition for the second year running. The Shield was run off on Sunday, and Portland played three matches, all on Sunday, against Portland Oregon, DC, and Denver (final). With a great effort from all involved and solid performances from Matt Gormley and Larry Maher Portland ended up winning the shield for the second year in a row.
