The Carlow hurlers are now on the hunt for another 2 points after seeing off Westmeath in Netwatch Dr. Cullen Park on Sunday.
The Barrowsiders took many positives from their win over The Lake County in what was their 2nd run out in The Division 2A National League.
One of the most satisfying aspects of their performance was how their young guns stepped up, particularly in the middle of the field.
Fiachra FitzPatrick and Conor Kehoe showed no signs of inexperience, lording it in the middle third, despite their age.

Seasoned veteran of Carlow GAA, Jack Kavanagh was full of admiration for the young men.
“The 2 boys really set the tone there today with their running energy and their work rate and I thought they came out on top in that battle today”
Corner Back for Carlow, Michael Doyle says this is a sign of things to come for the Dolmen County.
“It was a very satisfactory day but it’s only the first step on the ladder. We want to win this and that has got us 2 points so it’s on to the next game against Kerry.
Decision-making on the pitch also pleased him.
“It comes down to communication. We had a lot of physicality. I think Horse Lawlor there today just absolutely dominated as full back and he’s made a big difference this year coming in”.
“It’s the first time in 2 years that we’ve put in a 70 minute performance and that’s the most pleasing thing”.
Carlow face Kerry at home in Netwatch Dr. Cullen Park, Sunday 27th February 2022. Throw in is at 12.30
