The U16’s are through to the County Final after a hard fought win over Thurles in the county semi-final on Friday night last in the Ragg. In a game where all scores were well earned, Kilruane got off to a great start with 2 goals in the first ten minutes, 1 from Maria Hogan and 1 from a free by Captain Sarah Coonan. The next ten minutes was end to end hurling with hard tackles given and taken and both teams scoring 0-1 each. Thurles got a goal just on half-time which then gave both teams great ammunition for the half-time talk. Thurles scored 2 quick points after the restart and the signs were looking ominous for Kilruane. However, Kilruane continued their intense battle and Sarah Coonan pointed 2 frees, another point by Thurles gave the dangerous 2 point lead. Sub Roisin Cahill raised the green flag for Kilruane with the last puck of the game, bringing the final score to 3-3 to 1-4.
We wish a speedy recovery to Eibhlin Enright who received a hand injury during the match.
