Allianz Hurling League 2B: Derry 0-25 London 0-09
Home win to London see Senior Hurlers complete perfect league with full points
Despite Derry having already qualified for the Division 2B final, it didn’t stop them recording a comprehensive victory over their visitors London today at Celtic Park.
With the aid of the wind, London managed to stay in contention with their hosts up until half time, with sides level at 8 points a piece.
However after the break London only managed a single point as Derry put the foot down hitting 17 points, for a total of 25, two more than their tally last time out.
Derry now await the winners of Donegal v Sligo who meet in the semi final. The final currently scheduled for the 2nd April.
