Waterford’s Pauric Mahony scored 10 goals as the 2017 All Stars comfortably beat the 2016 selection to win the PwC All Stars match in Singapore today.
The nine-aside, goals only, encounter was split into four quarters, with both sets of players regularly interchanging in the high humidity.
The Irish Times reports that the downtown inner-city venue made point scoring a little too risky for the surrounding traffic, but the lively crowd were treated to 53 goals in 40 minutes.
Galways Conor Cooney got the scoring underway with the first of his seven goals in the opening minute.
The 2016 Hurler of the Year Waterford’s Austin Gleeson then got in on the act with his first goal.
However with a tight finale looking on the cards, Mahony quickly ended the match as a contest as he raised five green flags in a row. His Waterford teammates Noel Connors and Tadhg De Búrca also got their names on the scoresheet, up from the defence.
