Junior A Hurling Championship - Killeagh 1-14 vs Cloyne 2-09
On Thursday night Kevin O'Connor's charges headed to Youghal's Copper Raleigh. Shocking weather conditions meant that this game was going to go down to be a dog fight right down to the wire. Cloyne opened the scoring in the opening minutes and then Stephen O'Brien got us going with his first of eight. Also opening their accounts was Noel O'Connor and David O'Keefe to see us go in at the break two points clear. In the second half both sides traded scores before Clint Galvin rattled the net to keep us in front but Cloyne's response was instant . We went three points ahead again but a late goal from Cloyne forced extra time. When we went ahead Cloyne levelled it but Stephen O'Brien and John Walsh steadied the ship along with a great team effort from all involved to see us through to the third round.
Scorers: S. O'Brien (0-8) C. Galvin (1-1) J. Walsh (0-2) J. Fogarty (0-1) N.O'Connor (0-1)
