Westmeath defeated in O'Byrne Cup as Athlone IT Shine

Dessie Dolan scored 1-1 against DCU but couldn't prevent Paul Bealin's side losing.

WESTMEATH’S interest in the O’Byrne Cup came to an end last night (Wednesday) as the Lake County were defeated by DCU in their second group match.

Paul Bealin’s side were narrowly beaten by Dublin in last weekend’s O’Byrne Cup opener and slumped to a 2-15 to 2-9 loss at St Loman’s Lakepoint Park yesterday.

Dessie Dolan top-scored for Westmeath with 1-1 while Maryland’s Callum McCormack (0-3) and Athlone’s John Egan (0-1) were also among the Westmeath scorers.

Meanwhile, Athlone IT re-ignited their O’Byrne Cup hopes when defeating Carlow 1-15 to 0-13 in the Carlow IT grounds last night.

Clann na nGael’s Cathal Shine caught the eye with eight points while Westmeath’s Kieran Martin and Tubberclair’s Alan Coffey also registered.
