St. Thomas' Conor Cooney punches the air after scoring a goal against Liam Mellows

Four-in-a-row chasing St Thomas picked up their second win while sending Liam Mellows out of this year’s Galway senior hurling championship this evening.

It finished 2-21 to 0-15 at Pearse Stadium, where the Oisin Flannery’s goal helped the holders to lead by two (1-8 to 0-9) at the interval.

Beaten finalists in 2018 and 2019, Liam Mellows stayed within touching distance up until the closing 10 minutes in Salthill before St Thomas went on a spree which saw them hitting 1-7 to cement a comfortable victory and end the city side’s Tom Callinan Cup hopes.

Elsewhere, Turloughmore got their first win of the competition against Castlegar.

The 2020 runners up held on for a 1-21 to 2-19 victory in the end after their opponents saw a last gasp free from centre-field tail wide.

Tommy Larkins bounced back from their opening loss Sarsfields to defeat Loughrea by 2-15 to 0-19 while Sarsfields were 2-22 to 0-16 winners over Oranmore-Maree.

There were also wins for Ardrahan over Mullagh (3-15 to 0-14) and Clarinbridge against Kilnadeema-Leitrim (0-28 to 1-16), while Kilconieron draw with Portumna (1-20 to 2-17) and it also finished all square between Tynagh/Abbey-Duniry and Athenry (3-15 to 2-18).
