Kilkenny SHC final: Brilliant 'Boro best in goal scoring feast

John Knox 29 Oct 2017
Unbeaten Dicksboro ran up their tenth successive win of the season in thrilling fashion when roaring to victory in a high scoring Kilkenny senior hurling championship final at Nowlan Park today.
After a goal scoring feast in the first half when the teams shared equally in six goals and both 'keepers brought off terrific saves, the action eased somewhat afterwards as Dicksboro maintained their grip on things before claiming their fifth championship success.
Tullaroan 1-17, Fenians 2-5
Another example of hard work and a team playing for each other helped Tullaroan earn some North Kilkenny bragging rights and move clear at the top of their intermediate hurling league group.
Scoring bursts at just the right time paid off as they beat an out-of-sorts Fenians (Johnstown) at a windy Urlingford on Friday evening.
Dicksboro 1-15, James Stephens 1-13
James Stephens were left scratching their heads after this one!
They played well, employing good tactics and using the ball intelligently. They led most of the way, yet they still lost.
