The Junior A's of Urhan and Glengarriff met last Friday to open up their Beara League campaigns, and it was Urhan who headed home with the points.

Despite a downpour in the hours preceeding the game, the Glen pitch was in good condition as the game

threw in, and a bright start ensued. James Healy, dominanat at centrefield throughout this game,  swiftly

cancelled out a Glen opener when fed by Mikey Shea and the game was level after two minutes.

Urhan missed a few chances for minors thereafter before the Glen went ahead with their second shot at the posts in the

seventh minute. They would continue to be far more economical than their vistors.

David McCarthy smartly finished off another Mikey Shea assist to draw Urhan level and Vinny Lehane's cuitóg has the Northerners ahead after ten. The quarter stage saw Glengarriff, still to hit a wide, level again only for Vinnie Lehane to set up Dec Healy for his first of the game.

A barren spell ensued with Urhan creating numerous goal and point chances only to spurn them all. The deadline finally broken by a Glen free with two to the break, but Urhan responded well through two Dec Healy points. The first was a fine swift move, Aidan O' Neill drilling a fine ball into Vinnie Lehane who popped to Dec to finish, the second set up by Finbarr Dwyer.

Half-time score: Glengarriff 0-04 Urhan 0-06

If Urhan were regretting their first-half profligacy, Glengarriff seemed determined to take advantage. Three quick-fire points within five minutes of the restart had them in front.

Once again, Urhan responded well, knocking over three of their own. Sean O' Sullivan drove over a free, Dec O' Neill set up David McCarthy for his second, and Brian Healy then got Dec O' Neill onto the scoreboard.

When Finbarr Dwyer drove over a long-range beauty and then fed Sean O' Sullivan for his first from play, Urhan had daylight for the first time in the game. A Glen free with twenty to go brought it back to a goal's margin but brothers Declan and Martin O' Neill both pointed to stretch the gap. A Dec Healy free reinforced Urhan's position.

As Urhan missed a few chances, Glen rallied again with one from play and two injury-time frees, but Urhan closed it out with another Dec Healy free.

Final Score: Glengarriff 0-11 Urhan 0-15.
