Junior Cs head to Shield semi-finals!

posted 19 Sep 2014, 13:57 by Garret Byrne
After narrowly losing out on a championship quarter-final spot, Kinvara Junior C's now enter the Shield competition (for those teams who did not qualify from their group).
Only 8 sides are in this so the format is a straight knockout with quarter-finals, semi-finals and then final.
However, so far two teams have conceded their quarter-finals - Portumna and Athenry, so that means Kinvara are now in the Shield semi-finals. We were due to play Athenry this Sunday but now unfortunately that match now not going ahead.
We await for a draw to be made to see who we play in the semi-final. 

JUNIOR C SHIELD 
Quarter-finals:
Kinvara w/o Athenry conceded
Tommie Larkins w/o Portumna conceded
Annaghdown v Carnmore
Padraig Pearses v Clarinbridge

HOW OUR GROUP FINISHED UP:
This was a real battle at the top with in effect 5 teams seeking the top 4 positions and a place in the quarter-finals. In the end, Kinvara - who finished up with 6 wins, 1 draw and only 2 defeats from 9 matches played - ended up just outside the qualifying spots. Incredible really! 
I dont think the club could have asked for any more from the team and management and they were really a highlight in our club action this year. So with that, we still look forward to the Shield competition. Last year we have success at Shield level with our U16s winning the A1 Shield final, and our Minors winning the A Shield Final. Both those wins were tremendous for our club and we encourage our Junior C's to get out there and bring back another shield to the shores of South Galway!
