Junior A Hurling Championship Round 4
KDGAA 2-19 v Old Christians 4-11
We overcame Old Christians on Sunday in a topsey Turvey game in Boher. The opposition were quick out of the blocks slotting over two points. We responded with points from Denny Ahern and Fionn Murphy.
Just before the water break Old Christians goaled to lead 1.5 to 0.5.
A run of points from Denny Ahern, Darren Murphy and Brian O Grady drew us level. Both teams exchanged points to leave it 1.7 to 0.10 at the break.
We had a great start to the second half when Denny Ahern setup Davy O Connell to finish low to the net. However soon after Old Christians goaled themselves, once again both teams exchanged points to leave it level 1.17 to 3.11 at the water break.
Denny Ahern pointed to nudge us ahead. Then the pivotal moment came when Davy O Connell setup sub Jamie McCarthy to finish to the net with his first touch.
Any thoughts of a relaxing finish to the game were banished when Old Christians scored their fourth goal to leave the minimum between the sides.
The action now was furious with ever ball fought for with tenacity. Another pointed free by Denny Ahern gave us a little breathing space, soon after the final whistle sounded to enormous sighs of relief.
We were definitely rusty after the three week gap but a win was very important as it puts us in with a chance in the last round of making the quarter finals.
Team Jack Franklin, James O Regan, Sean O Dea, Declan Kenny, Daniel Gleeson, David Murphy, James Dalaigh, Fionn Murphy, Brian O Grady, Robbie Holmes, Darren Murphy, Denis O Dea, Denny Ahern, Danny Holton, Shane O Dea.
