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. While Mooncoin troubled the score-keeper with increasing regularity, Dunnamaggin had a plethora of time gaps where no encumbrance was placed on the shoulders of either the same score-keeper, or the referee to make any significant alterations to their respective documentation
O'LOUGHLIN GAELS 1-14 Erins Own 0-17
The O'Loughlin Gaels senior team had to fight hard for a share of the
spoils in the penultimate round of the Kilkenny Senior Hurling
League/Championship for 2012. The city side started very nicely with
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.
Kilkenny 4-24 Laois 1-13
A huge crowd turned out on a bright showery evening in O’Moore Park Portlaoise on Wednesday evening to see the home side in their sixth final.
For Laois it was their first appearance since they met Kilkenny in 1990 as they sought to emulate the achievement of their 1983 side that took the provincial title on a 3-13 to 4-8 victory over Wexford. Early arrivals to the grounds.............Read More
