Liam Breathneach Cup;
The Intermediate hurlers progressed to round 2 of the Liam Breathneach Cup following a 2 point victory over Kilbrittain 1.12 to 1.10.The game was played in cold windy conditions on a good sod considering the recent wet weather,
The game was evenly matched for the first 20 minutes with Kilbrittain enjoying a one point lead but they finished out the half strongly to lead by 8 points,1.09 to 4 points at half time.
Cloyne started the second half in determined fashion and despite conceding the first score of the half they began to eat into the Kilbrittain lead with some excellent scores from distance.The wind was having a major effect on the game with Kilbrittain only adding 1 point to their half time tally and Cloyne continuing to chip away at the lead.
With only 3 minutes left on the clock we had a simple 21 yard free to draw the game level but when the free was totally mishit it was finished to the net following a goal mouth scramble.
Credit to Kilbrittain who used the 8 minutes of extra time to try and score the match winning goal but were unable to breach our rearguard.
Overall it was a satisfactory start the year with a victory and we now play the winners of Bandon and Ballyhea in round two.
