Three first half goals playing against the breeze laid the foundations for Holycross Ballycahill's comprehensive victory over Lorrha at Templederry this evening in the County senior hurling championship.

Just 22 seconds had passed when Darragh Woods had their first goal and seven minutes later Liam Dwan bagged another after fine work from Brian O'Mara.  Their third goal from Liam Moloney on the stroke of the interval gave his side a 3-9 to 1-11 advantage - Lorrha's goal coming from Barry Moran in the 24th minute.

Although they were not to bag another green flag in the game, Holycross Ballycahill tagged on an impressive 17 points in the second half to complete the rout of their opponents who had a second goal in the 24th minute from Niall O'Meara.
