Kilkenny's U-21 campaign came to a halt following the round 1 encounter with Galway. Scores were hard to come by for both sides in the opening quarter but the game was to open up after that with Kilkenny going in at the break only two points down on a scoreline which read 0-9 to 1-8. Following half-time Galway found the goal on three occassions, a big deciding factor in what was in the end a close game. Kilkenny came close on a number of occasions to grabbing a badly needed goal of their own but that goal was to only arrive in injury time courtesy of J Donnelly. The final score 1-17 to 3-13 means Galway progress to the Leinster Final for 2018.
