Good Earth finally figures out Goose
Good Earth had only been swept by one team this season heading into Sunday's Quigley Cup semifinal.  And that team was today's opponent: Goose.

Whatever amount of statistical analysis and pre-game speeches happened for this game, nothing could take the place of well-executed fundamental hurling.  Good Earth jumped out ahead using the advantage of Tristan playing at full-forward, which forced Ciaran Connery to stay put at his position for once.  Six hurlers added to the total for the brown brigade. 

Goose put up their usual great fight.  Breaths were held in the final minute when, down one score, the blue bombers gained possession and looked to be within scoring range.  However, great defense by Good Earth's staunch backs and Joey in goal left them wanting.  ...

Goose proved they are second only to the Good Earth, who is second only to Claddagh, in this league's regular season rankings, by beating Connor's in unimpressive fashion on Sunday.

One might have expected more from a team with two guys named Ciaran, but then again, it could be that Connor's is more powerful than anyone imagined, and will be a sleeper in the July tournament.  Only time will tell...

Until then, Goose can take solace in the fact that they beat the pants off of Flynn's.
