U16 Roinn B league

The U16 hurlers got their first win of the league on Monday 17th of April in a closely contested match in Mullinavat against hosts Mullinavat.  The scores were level at the end of the first half with Tullogher scoring 1-10 to Mullinavat’s 2-7.  Mullinavat’s full forward scored two quick goals early in the second half to move them into what appeared to be a comfortable lead but Tullogher responded in fine style to get back into the game. The final score was Tullogher 4-14, Mullinavat 5-9.  Tulloghers win was founded on team work and a willingness to challenge for every ball ensuring that Mullinavat were always under pressure when in possession.

On Monday 24th April, the U16s’ continued their fine run of recent form with a win over Galmoy/Windgap (G/W) in Brownstown.  Tullogher made the early running, scoring the first two points of what would turn into a game of two halves.  G/W then scored 1-4 without reply before Tullogher grabbed a goal to keep in touch.  From thereon, wind assisted G/W dominated the remainder of the first half against a somewhat sluggish Tullogher, the half time score was Tullogher 1-3, G/W 2-6.  The second half began with G/W scoring the first point but after that the match swung Tulloghers way with a continual flow of scores, including two quick goals to leave the Tullogher lads in a commanding position as the match came to its conclusion.  Final score Tullogher 3-12, G/W 2-10

The U16s’ will play their final match of the league away to Tullaroan on Monday 1st of May.
