Urris record fine away win at Robert Emmets

After losing their opening two group games, Urris gave their slim hopes of qualification a boost when they won away to Robert Emmets in Group A of the Junior A Championship on Sunday.

Robert Emmets . . . 1-8

Urris . . . 3-11

Played in brilliant sunshine in Castlefinn, this was an entertaining encounter and while Robert Emmets played well, they were well behind at the break, trailing 2-6 to 0-4.

The home side needed a good start to the second half, but Urris struck for a third goal shortly after half-time and that killed off the Robert Emmets challenge.

The home side were well served by Gary McNulty who has been enjoying a fine season. The forward scored 1-5 of his team’s total.

Kevin McLaughlin top-scored for Urris with 2-3 while Alan Friel hit 1-2 and Donal Kelly delivered two points.
