Killeagh Notes

29 June, 2009

Congratulations to the Junior A hurling team on their hard earned win over Fr. O'Neill's in CopperAlley in Youghal on Saturday last. This was our first championship outing of 09. While both teams traded scores in the opening half Noel O'Connor's goal separated the sides at half time. This was a lead we never relinquished even though Fr. O'Neill's did hit a purple patch and closed the game down to 3 points. We held on to win on a scoreline of 1-11 to 0-9. We now look forward to the next round.
Junior B hurling league - On Sunday morning we played Watergrasshill in the league in Killeagh. This well contested game of hurling saw very little to separate both sides, Watergrasshill having the upper hand at half time. With the wind at our backs in the second half we picked off some good scores. Then entered the Prodigal Son in the form of substitute Michael "Fong" Byrne at full forward who not long on the field scored our only goal of the game. Watergrasshill came back at us and picked off some good scores but when the final whistle blew one point was the difference. We ran out winners on a scoreline of 1-10 0-12.
Fixtures: Junior B Hurling Championship Saturday the 4th of July vs Youghal at 7:30pm in Ahavine.
