Minor A Hurling returns to action!

posted 24 Jun 2013, 03:25 by Unknown user
Well the exams are over and the club minor hurling championship makes a welcome return to the fields this week, with a full round to matches fixed for tomorrow evening.
 
Kinvara face Cappataggle (now fixed for Kilbeacanty, not Castledaly), with both sides aiming for an opening win. Cappy have come close in their 3 matches to date, only losing by a single point to both Loughrea and Meelick-Eyrecourt, while drawing with St. Thomas. Kinvara has lost their 3 matches to date (all to joint table toppers Liam Mellows, Loughrea and Meelick-Eyrecourt), but had their chances in all three matches to have done better.
 
It will be interesting to see how the exam-break affects both teams, and it will boil down to what side adjusts quicker to championship hurling and shake off the rusty shackles from the past couple of months. 
Matches fixed for Tues 25th June:
KINVARA v Cappataggle, in Kilbeacanty 7pm
Gort v St. Thomas
Loughrea v Athenry
Liam Mellows v Meelick-Eyrecourt

HERE IS THE UPDATE POSTED IN MAY
"In Kinvara's group, it is Liam Mellows, Meelick-Eyrecourt and Loughrea who occupy the top three slots, each having 6 points. Incidently, those are the 3 teams that Kinvara have played, and although we lost all 3 matches, we competed very well and were unlucky not to have taken points from either of the three. Although we were well beaten on the scoreboard against Meelick-Eyrecourt, we actually led Liam Mellows for most of the match before eventually losing by just  two points, while we came from behind against Loughrea to pinch what we thought was a draw, only for an error to have been made and we actually lost by a single point. 

There is all to play for in this group, and with Kinvara yet to face Gort, Cappataggle, St. Thomas and Athenry, you can be sure that the seasiders will be all out for a top four finish and a championship quarter-final place. Play resumes after the exams at the end of June.
