Limerick District League Divison 1B
Regional United B-5
Regional United became the first side to beat league leaders Shelbourne in the league this season.
The club’s B side brought their recent Munster Junior Cup form into the league and managed to put five past the early front runners in a brilliant performance.
Shelbourne were one down early on thanks to a goal from the very impressive Adare senior hurler Willie Griffin.
A strike from Aaron O’Hanlon- son of current Janesboro manager Shane- added to Regional’s advantage and Shelbourne’s woe before the break.
Shelbourne were two goals and a man down before half time arrived as they saw a man sent off..
Former Limerick senior Hurler Wayne McNamara then showed he is adept at putting the ball under the bar as he is over it by hitting a brace after the turn.
Colm Hyland then added a fifth as Regional registered a shock and confidence boosting win.
Shelbourne did get a consolation goal from Luke Ingram, but it certainly wasn’t the leaders day.
