The Hoboken Guards
Take Senior Hurling Trophy

Captain Paul Loughnane lifts the cup.

The Hoboken Guards of Hoboken, New Jersey won their first New York Senior Hurling Championship in August in New York’s Gaelic Park. They beat Tipperary New York by two goals and 29 points (2-29) to Tipperary’s two goals and 24 points (2-24.) (Each goal counts for three points. A point is scored over the bar.)

The match, which was part of the New York Senior Hurling Club championship, was fast-paced, and competition was fierce as points were scored from all over the pitch, one after the other, tit for tat throughout the whole game. The first half ended with just a point between the teams, with Hoboken at 1-08, and Tipperary at 1-09. During the second half, Tipperary took the lead and scored a goal, but Paul Loughnane came back on the pitch for Hoboken after a short rest and started scoring impressive points from a distance. Tipperary continued to score tying the game in the last seconds. Cathal Barrett, who, ironically, is from Tipperary, scored Hoboken’s second goal just after Tipperary had taken the lead in overtime.

Two more points were scored by Hoboken, and then the famous hooter at Gaelic Park blew, and the Hoboken Guards, formed in 2010, were New York’s Senior Hurling champions! ♦  Dave Lewis
