Dunloy win what could be first leg of unique Ulster double

Thursday, 17 November 2016

Dunloy....................................0-16
Dungiven................................0-10

ANTRIM Minor Hurling champions Dunloy made amends for last season's Ulster Championship defeat at the hands of Slaughtneil when they took out Dungiven in an excellent final at Ballinascreen.
Overall the better outfit, they were pushed all the way by a gutsy Derry outfit who never really knew when to rollover. Just one point separated the sides at the interval and while the Antrim champions went on to win by six, they certainly knew they were in a game which could have gone either way.
Conal Cunning Doherty was the star of the show scoring ten of the Dunloy points and what a talent the club have found. Great things certainly lie ahead for this young man and, no doubt, Under 21 and Senior Championship titles could all beckon.
That said the Dunloy side are far from being a one-man outfit and they had a host of stars despite having to begin this Ulster final without both Ronan Molloy and Cahil McGuigan through injury.
