Senior Hurling

posted 8 Oct 2012, 05:49 by Kiltegan GAA Club

Our Senior Hurlers were beaten by Avondale in the quarter final of the Senior Hurling Championship in heart breaking circumstances in Arklow on Saturday evening on a score line of 3-10 to 2-11. After taking the game to Avondale thoughout and outplaying them in most positions throughout the game we were leading at halftime 1-6 to 1-4. We played the best hurling of the year and were leading by a one point margin with the clock ticking over to fulltime when Avondale struck a late goal to win the match by 2pts We had a last minute chance in injury time to win the game when Nigel Nolan got the ball at the edge of the square and struck it wide and so ended our championship in a year which we won our first ever championship, twenty five years ago which we will be honoured at this year’s Co. Hurling Final. Our scores came from Owen O’Neill 1-0, Ray Kelly 1-1, John Keogh 0-8, Ronan Byrne and Jeffery Bermingham 1pt each. Our thanks to manager Damien Scallon, his selector Eugene Byrne and the back room team for their effort in keeping hurling alive in the club.
