KINVARA 5-9, ST. THOMAS 1-12
The Junior B Hurlers of Kinvara switched their swimming togs for their hurling togs last Friday evening, as they beat St. Thomas in this League Group match. While Ireland is currently experiencing a heatwave, this bunch of hurlers are also causing their own mini heatwave as they have now won 4 out of 4 matches and now top their group. In fact, of the 24 sides in Junior B league, we are the only club with a 100% record!!!

The Kinvara team had to dig deep to pull out this win. At half-time the local lads in Castledaly led by 1-8 to Kinvara's 1-4. And still with 10 minutes to go, the St. Thomas outfit still held the lead. But, the fitness and determination of Kinvara stood out and they rattled the net for three goals in the closing stages, to record a superb win on this sweltering evening.

The goal scorers for Kinvara were Ollie Bergin, Cathal Coughlan, Mark Kavanagh, Eric Keane and the rejuvenated Aidan Fahy. The points all came from a combination of Paul Keane, Mark Kavanagh, Enda Mahon, Sean Bermingham and Ollie Bergin.

Kinvara team:
Mike Smith, Patrick Canny, Kieran Burke, Darren Geaney, Ger Linnane, Paul Keane, Ger O'Dea, Mark Kavanagh, Eric Keane, Michael Kilkenny, Enda Mahon, Sean Bermingham, Aidan Fahy, Ollie Bergin, Cathal Coughlan.
Subs used: David Burke, Mark Bermingham, Stephen Bermingham.
