Carlow had a six-point victory over Westmeath in The Division 2A Allianz National Hurling League, avenging their Kehoe Cup loss from a few weeks ago.
The final score in Netwatch Dr. Cullen Park was Carlow 1-20 Westmeath 1-14. Carlow hurling selector Pat Murphy was a guest on Full time with Sinead Kehoe on Monday night to discuss his side’s bounce-back win against Westmeath. Understandably he was delighted with how the side fared, especially the way the younger players have seamlessly fitted in;
“These guys are putting in a huge effort at training and to replicate that in the match. I suppose it came together in the match and that made a difference in the end.”
“We are delighted with younger players blending in. The likes of Jack McCullough, young Fitzpatrick, Conor Kehoe, Scott Treacy, and John Doyle. These are younger players coming onto the field, them getting experience at this level is great, and being able to contribute along with the more seasoned players who lend their experience.”
“It is great to get the two points, but it is only two points, one swallow does not make a Summer as they say. The challenge for us now is to keep improving in those key areas and put us in with a chance for further wins.”
