Thomastown 2-12, Carrickshock 1-10
This was an enjoyable encounter in which both sides showed considerable enthusiasm, solid determination, and not too little skill. Thomastown won because they had some sterling defenders, and a more direct, and forceful number of attackers.
Played in the excellent Grennan complex, the home side stole an early march on their rivals in the 12th minute when a very determined gallop from forty metres out, the powerful Michael Mahoney drove towards the ‘Shock goal. From a narrow angle, he hand-passed the sliothar to Garry Lehane
Junior Hurling Championship Round 4
Mooncoin 3-22, Dunnamaggin 1-9
This County junior League Championship game on Thursday evening last in Mooncoin was a bit of a damp squib for the few hardy patrons present, as the home side totally demoralised Dunnamaggin, as they ran out rather facile winners.

Junior B League Final (South)
Kilmacow 1-16, Rower Inistioge 0-11
Kilmacow proved a somewhat tougher nut to crack than the Rower Inistioge expected in their Junior League Final in Thomastown on Wednesday last. The conditions were certainly not conducive to fast, controlled play, rather the slippy surface, and the slippier ball made control a bit of a lottery. The Kilmacow lads seemed to handle the conditions better, and one could suggest that such abilities were the obvious difference in the winning and losing the game.
