Brian Cody and his selectors maintained their policy of trying out new players in this Round 3 game of the Allianz National Hurling League played in front of 8,496 patrons in Nowlan Park on Sunday. Kilkenny seemed well in control for long periods of the game but a Galway goal from a penalty ten minutes from the end followed by another 4 points to Kilkenny's single point reply left a single score between the sides at the end. Kilkenny were ahead 2-11 to 0-8 at the break - a Richie Hogan goal just on half-time giving them a level of comfort. But a five point return in the second half, albeit against a strong wind, will be a bit of a concern for Kilkenny management. Next up is an away game to Dublin next saturday in Parnell Park at 7pm. Tickets available from usual sources at €10. For images of the day, courtesy Martin Rowe and Willie Dempsey, click HERE. For match report, courtesy GAA.ie, click HERE
Kilkenny CBS 2-13 St Kierans 0-13
Kilkenny CBS retained their Leinster Colleges title with a well merited 2-13 to 0-13 win over great local rivals St Kierans. Two first half goals from Jamie Byrne left the CBS in a commanding position at half time 2-8 to 0-5. Despite playing against the wind in the second half the CBS boys managed to maintain that 2 goal advantage to the end. St Kierans will now play in the All Ireland Quarter Final next weekend.
