O'Loughlin Gaels 1-15 Danesfort 2-8
In Clara on Saturday evening O Loughlin Gaels were winners of the J J Kavanagh & Sons North Junior B Hurling Final. There was little between the sides in the first half with an O'Loughlins goal in the first five minutes the difference between the sides (Half Time 1-7 to 0-6). Scoring in the 3rd quarter was very slow but the city side extended their lead 1-10 to 0-7 half way through the second half. With only a minute of normal time remaining they were in a commanding position leading 1-15 to 0-8 but two late Danesfort goals made for an exciting finish but O Loughlin Gaels held out for a deserved win.
