Kinvara face Castlegar in Minor Clash

posted 4 May 2014, 05:42 by Garret Byrne
Kinvara minor hurlers face the challenge of Castlegar this Cuckoo Monday in the Pier Head Minor A Hurling Championship (in Ballindereen at 6:00pm)

This will be another tough test for Kinvara. We have remained undefeated this year in our two matches so far, and will be hoping to extend that with a victory on Monday.  
Castlegar narrowly lost their opening match against Craughwell, but bounced back with a solid win over Kilnadeema-Leitrim. This match against Kinvara will be a match they target to win, and as always, they will be tough opponents. 

The two sides met two years ago in U16A, with Castlegar winning narrowly by 3-6 to 1-10. Last year the sides also met in the Minor A Shield semi-final, with Kinvara winning this time by 2-14 to 0-12. They will be familiar with each other, even going back to an U12 final several years ago in which Castlegar won, in which many of both sets of players would have been involved. 
This time around we can expect only the minimal to separate the sides, and I wouldn't rule out a draw.

Note: 
- Top 4 sides to qualify for the quarter-finals.
- Plan is to have 3-4 matches each played before the Leaving Cert break, with the remaining matches on the resumption at end of June.

Games coming Up:
Kilnadeema-Leitrim v Tommie Larkins, Sun 4th May
Kinvara v Castlegar, 5th May in Ballindereen 6pm
