Tyrone Vs Louth – 2013 GAA Allianz Hurling League, Division 3A

Last Easter Sunday, I went to Strabane Sigersons Park to see Tyrone hurlers take on the wee county Louth in the NHL Division 3A tie – a game that Tyrone needed to win in order to avoid the drop to Division 3B next year. Unlike the support for the Tyrone football team, the hurlers failed to attract the same crowd with a maximum of 30 people attending the game.

With the breeze behind their back in the first half, Louth used it to their advantage and managed to strike 3 goals in the opening period allowing them to carry a 11 point lead in at HT.

Although they had a lot to do, Tyrone started very well in the second half and struck numerous points, once cutting the deficit to 4 points. But a strong last 10 minutes from the Louth men, which included 2 goals, meant that Tyrone were defeated on a scoreline of 5-11 to 0-15.
