KILTEELY/DROMKEEN GAA CLUB NOTES
Junior A Hurling Championship Round 5
KDGAA 1-12 v Old Christians 2-12
We headed into our lost group game unbeaten with 3 wins and a draw. However everything was on the line against the group leaders, we needed a win to guarantee progress to the quarter finals.
We started well and were 5 points to 2 ahead at the water break playing with a strong diagonal breeze.
We had some excellent points from Denny Ahern, Darren Murphy, David Hannon and Denis O Dea to lead 0.9 to 0.5 at the break. Our wides total was 13 in the first half, we hoped it wouldn’t prove fatal.
Our lead was wiped out within 5 minutes of the restart, Croagh Kilfinny grabbing a fortuitous goal and 3 points to take the lead. Another goal left us a mountain to climb, Croagh Kilfinny led 2.10 to 1.10 at the final water break.
We never gave up, and when Denny Ahern goaled from a free to leave three points between the sides, it setup a frantic last few minutes of injury time.
It was not to be, and cruelty our only defeat in the group denied us progress on scoring difference.
Overall we have made lots of progress during the year, simply getting back playing was a huge bonus and it wasn’t for the lack of effort or preparation that denied us at the end.
Well done to all the players and management throughout the year, we still have the football quarter final to come.
Many thanks to Damien O Dwyer for live streaming and commentary on the game.
