In ideal conditions in Nowlan Park on Saturday Ballyhale and Erins Own were crowned Minor Champions in the Kilkenny Honda Centre Minor Championships. In the "A" decider Ballyhale and James Stephens played out a thriller in a game that ebbed and flowed. James Stephens looked to have the game in the bag but a Ballyhale goal in injury time swung the game Ballyhale's way. The Village threw the proverbial kitchen sink at them in the remaining minutes but the Balyhale defence held firm. Click HERE for match report from John Knox of Kilkenny People.
In the "B" decider Erins Own were worthy winners over Clara. A Sean Buggy goal two minutes from time proved decisive here. Click HERE for match report from John Knox of Kilkenny People. Click HERE for images of both games from Donal Foley. Click on Read More for team pics.
