Hurlers stay on top after fine win in Derry.

Wicklow are still top of division 2B after a fine win over the home side in Celtic Park. Derry are always hard to beat at home and really made it difficult for Wicklow in the early exchanges. It took a goal from Andy O’Brien to really settle the Garden men and set them on their way.

Wicklow’s ten-point win certainly didn’t look on the cards after a testing opening quarter. Some fine displays from many Wicklow players in as good a team performance as they have delivered for many a year kept them driving forward and Captain Christy Moorehouse was on song from play and frees and he finished with a personal tally of 0-8. Andy can’t stop finding the net and long may it continue, he added 0-5 for good measure.the half back line all chipped in with a point each and were totally dominant once again. The full back line look like they will kill before they let scores be had in there.

Victors by 1-21 to 1-11, the Garden County have accumulated six points from three outings to date. Down are the visitors this Sunday and they had a fine win away from home themselves in Mayo so they will travel with plenty of confidence.

Meath also have two wins from two outings with their game with Roscommon falling foul of the weather with the Athleague pitch unplayable.
