The under-21 hurlers of St Lachtain’s (Freshford) and St Patricks(Ballyragget) lit up a gloomy November afternoon when they fought out an entertaining Northern semi final of the J.J. Kavanagh & Sons under-21A championship before a big crowd in a match played in ideal conditions at Jenkinstown on Sunday.
BARROW RANGERS 4-20, JAMES STEPHENS 0-5
Barrow Rangers qualified to meet Dicksboro in the J.J. Kavanagh & Sons North Under-21 A Hurling Championship following a comprehensive victory over a very poor James Stephen’s side at Bennettsbridge on Saturday last.
A story as old as the druids in a dark beleaguered Nowlan Park where Henry Shefflin's refrigerated nerve earned Ballyhale an injury-time reprieve against city boys James Stephens.
Remarkably, both minor and senior finals ended in draws on a day when the granite will, that defines Kilkenny hurling found epic expression in the tempest.
