British Uni hurling
« on: November 11, 2007, 02:51:30 PM »
Hello, to inform you all the British university championships took place yesterday. The event was held just outside Birmingham and consisted of 7 teams. Split into two groups then top two teams proceeding to a semi final and final. Accounts of the semi-finals and finals are as follows. Ljmu (Liverpool) Vs St Mary’s (London) completing in an intense game of hurling which wasn't over until the last minute. Ljmu dominated the 1st half against the wind, however in the 2nd half st Mary’s fought back, in excellent display of hurling for both teams, Ljmu managed to hold out to win. In the other semi-final Napier (Edinburgh) Vs Dundee uni, in this match the red hot favourites Napier played a tired Dundee side, true to form they dominated every area of the field to run out as easy winners.

The Final Ljmu Vs Napier was played 15 minutes after the semi-final games. Napier started the game fast and Ljmu seemed tired after there semi final. Napier again dominated the game but this was met with resistance for a powerful Ljmu half back line which included Wexford's Shane O'Hanlon and Antrim's Martin Jamison. Both names to watch out for in the future. However great ball and probing runs from Ciaran Comerford of Kilkenny and good battling from Connor Delaney also of Kilkenny saw them run out as winners.
