Two goals in the opening three minutes gave Kilkenny a dream start in the Electric Ireland Leinster Minor Final played in Croke Park on Sunday. Dublin battle back well and were level after 20 minutes. Kilkenny lead by three points at half time (2-7 to 0-10) but Sean Ryan's second goal 7 minutes into the second half put Kilkenny into a commanding lead. They pushed the lead out to 10 points with just 5 minutes remaining and Dublin's goal came too later to have any impact on the game. Kilkenny will play in the All Ireland Semi-Final on August 6th.
