Hurney the hero for Abbeyside

Abbeyside 3-16 Fourmilewater 0-06
Abbeyside full-forward Patrick Hurney continued his sensational goalscoring form to obliterate Fourmilewater at Fraher Field.

His return now stands at 10-11 from six games. Hurney rustled the rigging on 12 minutes after a pass from brother Gary. Mark Gorman showed his accuracy from placed ball with six successful attempts. On 23 minutes, David Collins sent in a dipping sideline that deceived Conor Ryan and landed in the net, and they led 2-9 to 0-2 at the break.

Hurney settled the outcome 30 seconds after the restart. Mark Ferncombe’s pass picked out Hurney who shot a low rasper to the net. The deadly Mark Gorman kept the scoreboard ticking over to secure 19-point win.
