Boardsmill Junior Hurling side continued their run of success with a narrow victory Friday evening against local rivals, Trim. Trim got the scoring underway with their first point after six minutes and slotted over another two points in succession before the men from Boardsmill got onto the score board. Cathal Flattery, a man in fine scoring form of late got his first goal of the evening followed up by a point from play and another goal in quick succession. Trim replied with a point from a free. From a 65, the ball fell short, landed in the box and was struck into the back of the net, where Flattery's brother, Fergal, slotted home another goal for the 'Mill boys. Trim followed up with another free and a point from play while Sean Dixon finished the scoring for the first half with a free leaving the sides 3-02 to 0-06 at half time. 

The second half started in the same fashion as the first with Trim getting the first score, a point from play. Cathal Flattery followed this up with a well taken point. Gerry Jones was then awarded a free on the 45 yard line and Dixon slotted over. Trim followed this up with another two points. However, the Flattery brother's were not finished scoring for the evening, Conor Darby caught the ball on the 14 yard line and drilled the ball low and hard at the Trim goal only to be saved by the goalkeeper, Cathal Flattery was on hand to tap the rebounded shot into the back of the net. Brother Fergal, followed up shortly afterward when he took the ball on the edge of the box from a cross from Dixon and got his second goal of the game. Bernard McLoughlin concluded the 'Mill's scoring for the game with a 65 leaving the sides 5-05 to 0-13 points.
