KILTEELY/DROMKEEN GAA CLUB NOTES
KDGAA 2-16 v Mungret 0-19
Round 2 of the Junior Hurling Championship saw us travel to Bruff to take on Mungret. Both
teams had won their opening games so a tight game was expected.
Denis O Dea grabbed the opening point but Mungret soon equalised. Denny Ahern pointed
a free and Robbie Holmes bundled in a goal either side of two Mungret pointed frees.
We then went on a run of 4 points from play from Pierce Close, Denny Ahern, Darren
Murphy and Brian O Grady to lead 1.6 to 0.3.
Mungret then converted 4 frees before Denis O Dea and Brian O Grady points left it 1.8 to
0.8 at the break. Points from Dylan Holmes and Darren Murphy extended our lead. We then traded points
leaving it 1.13 to 0.11 at the water break. Mungret then went on a scoring burst converting 6 on the next 7 points to leave it level
entering the final 10 minutes.
Denny Ahern converted only our second free but Mungret equalised to leave it 1.15 to 0.18,
it was now anyone’s game. A long delivery fell to Darren Murphy who blasted to the net, this proved the crucial score.
Another exchange of points followed before the relief of the final whistle. Final score 2.16 to
This was a workman like performance, plenty of room for improvement as we conceded 10
converted frees. On the plus side all but 2 points for us came from play.
Next up is Patrickswell next Sunday in Claughaun at 7pm
