Kilruane played the recently crowned Feile County Champions Silvermines in the second round of the U14B championship on Thursday last in Dolla. The Kilruane team featuring a number of positional changes from the first match were hoping to show an improved performance. Silvermines opened the scoring of the match with a goal and despite many chances for both sides, the only other score of the first half was a point from play by Amy Quinlisk. Both teams were evenly matched at half-time on a scoreline of Kilruane 0-1 to Silvermines 1-0. In the second half, Silvermines again opened the scoring with a point from a free followed by a point from play. Despite good periods of possession and play, Kilruane found it difficult to break down the strong Silvermines defence. Three goals from Silvermines eventually saw them pull away to take the spoils on a final scoreline of Kilruane 0-1 Silvermines 4-2. The third round is against Toomevara on Tuesday 15th in Cloughjordan.
