In the Senior Hurling League Semi Final last Tuesday night we travelled to Riverstown to take on Sars, with key players not available on the night it was always going to be an up hill battle, but battle we did with nothing between us in the opening exchanges. Sars hit a purple patch and notched up 1-12 to our 5 points, we opened the second half brighly with three unanswered points. Things were beginning to look up, however Sars were not going to let a league final show down with Newtown slip through their fingers and added another nine points to their tally. In the closing stages we found the net twice and raised the white flag once more. Final score: Sars 1-21 Killeagh 2 -09. Well done lads on a great years hurling. JUNIOR A League Hurling Final - We played Dungourney on Saturday in the League Final in poor conditions and against a strong wind. In the opening half we failed to register a single score to their five points. We started brightly in the second half and started to close the gap and came to within two points at one stage and looked like we might steal it but a Dungourney attack rattled the Killeagh net and try as we may we couldnt claw it back and it finished on a scoreline of Dungourney 1-10 Killeagh 0-07. Well done to all concerned throughout the year. FIXTURES: Minor A football League Final, Killeagh Ita's vs Erin's Own Sunday @ 11.30 in Killeagh, please support.
