Thomastown marched through to the 2nd round of the junior championship with an emphatic victory over Windgap in Dunnamaggan yesterday.  This was a very physical encounter,on a very bumpy pitch but Thomastown were the better team throughout. They say goals win matches and that was surely the case here.  Goals by Davy Prendergast and Thomas o Hanrahan gave Thomastown a lead they never looked like surrendering. Indeed had the forwards radar been in working order the winning margin would have been much greater.They shot 14 wides in total and against better opposition this wastefulness will surely be punished.The defence was rock solid throughout and the workrate could not be questioned all over the field.The team spirit seems to be first class amongst this group, and they will relish the battles ahead. For the record the scorers were T O Hanrahan 1-5 S Waugh 0-5 3 frees Jonjo Farrell 0-2 M Donnelly 0-1 D Waugh 0-1 D Prendergast 1-0

The under 12 hurlers from Thomastown took part in the Dicksboro Tournament last Saturday in Palmerstown. In their first match they were drawn against the home team, this was an excellent game and ended in a draw, Thomastown 1.03 Dicksboro 6 points.This left Thomastown in the
position of having to win the remaining 2 games in their group, which they did in great style. First they beat Young Ireland and then they overcame O' Loughlins. This set them up to meet Erins Own in the final.  The final was a closely fought encounter with Thomastown displaying the best hurling of the day. The tremendous work rate of the entire team ensured victory on a score line of 2.06 to 2.01. The team were obviously driven by the defeat in the James Stephens tournament to the same opposition two weeks ago. Team: Diarmuid Galway, Edidie Donnelly, Darragh Galway, Conor Kearney (Capt) Cian McCormack, Ned Kirwan, Shane Maher, David Walsh, Conor Whelan, Joe Conlon, Stephen Donnelly
Jack Barcoe, Jack Holden, James Delahunty, Jordan Butler and Jack Cahill.
