Eoghan Rua hurlers book Ulster final spot thumbnailEoghan Rua centre half back Barry McGoldrick is carried off the field after suffering what appeared to be a hamstring injury in the win over Bredagh.

EOGHAN Rua Coleraine hit Bredagh with an unanswered 1-7 in the opening quarter of this Ulster Intermediate hurling championship semi-final in Loughgiel last Saturday afternoon to set the platform for what turned out to be a comfortable 1-18 to 2-4 win. It was a blistering start by the Coleraine side as they had five points on the board by the seventh minute. Then just three minutes later, following a fine pass in from Michael McQuillan, corner forward Ciaran McGoldrick blasted to the Bredagh net.
It took to the 17th minute for Bredagh to register their first score. A high hopeful ball in was not dealt with by the Eoghan Rua defence, Ian Galway striking the loose sliothar to the net from close range.
That would be Bredagh's only score of the first half while Eoghan Rua went on to hit another six points in a row to take a commanding 1-13 to 1-0 lead into the break.
Eoghan Rua's finishing was top drawer in the first half with the prolific Sean Leo McGoldrick hitting nine, four from frees, he finished with eleven to his name. A number of those points were superb long range efforts, both from play and frees. In contrast Bredagh were very wasteful, shooting eight wides including a number of very scoreable chances from frees.
