posted 7 Nov 2014, 11:58 by Garret Byrne
Its been a long season, but its great for our Junior C hurlers to have a county final to look forward to at the end of it. On Sunday midday the ball will be thrown in between Tommie Hanlon's men and Padraig Pearses, with the Junior C Shield the winning prize.

Here is how the Shield competition progressed, and also how we got in our championship.

As a recap, here is how Kinvara fared in our championship group.
JUNIOR C HURLING CHAMPIONSHIP

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!
