Hurling mini-review: Tables turning?

downderry

Only the one hurling match last weekend but – as we promised – it was a good one between Down and Derry, with Down winning out 3-16 to 1-17 away to their Christy Ring finalist hosts. Down will return to the same venue in a fortnight for a chance at Antrim – with a genuine hope of breaking the Saffrons’ stranglehold on the Ulster title.

And we mean it. With their win, Down now overhaul their local rivals and should have a decent shot when the sides meet again on Saturday week.
