June 12 - Junior C Hurling: Worcester v Barley House Wolves

Worcester 1-15 Barley House Wolves (Concord, NH) 1-14

The Worcester Hurling team defeated the Barley House Wolves by the narrowest of margins Sunday.
The second game of the Junior C hurling championship took place on Sunday when Worcester played host to the Barley House Wolves.  It was a tough game played in tight quarters, but a sporting one at that.  It was neck and neck all the way through, however, Worcester grabbed an early goal and the Wolves were chasing the lead all the way through.  Joe Nette was the goalscorer.  At the break it was 1-7 to 0-8 in favour of the home side.

With Rory O'Mahoney and Liam Kelly taking the frees for each side and Worcester keeping their noses in front throughout the second half, a late O'Mahoney goal put just the point in it with minutes to go.  The final minutes were tense.  Two players were given their marching orders for excessive rough play as the tension mounted towards the final whistle, Luke Lagorese for Worcester and Derek Russ for the Wolves.  Worcester held on for the one point win and join the Wolves with a win each in the championship.

A reception was held at the Greyhound Bar in Worcester following the game.
