Connacht Senior Club Hurling Championship
St. Mary?s 1 ? 13
Tubbercurry 1 ? 9
St. Mary?s scored a fully deserved win over Tubbercurry in Sunday?s hard fought Connacht Club hurling first round championship game in Kilcoyne Park, Tubbercurry.
A goal by Stephen McManus for St. Mary?s in the seventeenth minute gave the Carrick-on-Shannon side a victory cushion for the remainder of the exchanges.
Despite the absence of Nicky Rackard All Star, Paul Severs, who got married on Friday, Tubbercurry were always in the hunt but were never able to turn the tables on St. Mary?s.
St. Marys next outing will be on the weekend of November 4/5 when their semi-final opponents will be the winners of the Athleague/Ballyhaunis Connacht Club quarterfinal..
