A blistering final quarter ensured Oulart-The Ballagh made it two wins from two in the Pettitt's Senior hurling Championship in Bellefield on Sunday afternoon last. With the victors holding a narrow 0-8 to 0-7, they accelerated with 1-5 in the last thirteen minutes plus added time to see off their Wexford Town opponents.
Oulart-The Ballagh 1-13 Faythe Harriers 0-8
Faythe Harriers led 0-6 to 0-2 at the break but failed to really take advantage of the strong wind at their back in the first half. Jim Berry did pop over two points from his side but Oulart would have been the happier team at the change-around.
Within four minutes of the resumption Oulart picked off the four points needed to get them level. They had moved into a 0-9 to 0-7 lead when Tommy Storey latched onto a Shaun Murphy pass and fired home the only goal of the game.
From that point on Oulart easily closed out the game and will be confident of booking their quarter final place next time out against a floundering Shamrocks.
