The Intermediates 2nd match of the league took place on Sunday last in Cloughjordan against Shannon Rovers. This was a tough and challenging encounter between these two teams. Kilruane played with the wind in the first half, with Maria Hogan scoring a goal and Marie Ryan, Roisin Cahill and Lianne O’Kelly adding on the points to go in at half-time on a scoreline of 1-3 to 0-4. However, in the second half, Shannon Rovers took advantage of the strong wind to pile on the pressure and the scores. Kilruane kept fighting to the end against the strong wind with points from Marie Ryan and Roisin Cahill. Shannon Rovers finished up the stronger team and pulled away to win on a scoreline of 2-10 to 1-8.
