U14C Hurling Championship
KINVARA v PORTUMNA
Sat 22nd March, in Portumna at 5pm.

Both sides will be aiming for a second win in this championship group match. There is no doubt the momentum will be with the Shannonsiders and we can expect them to have a large homecrowd on the back of their clubs fine achievement in Croke Park earlier this week.

Both sides secured wins last weekend, although Portumna will be the more tested side after their first two matches. The sides met last year at U13 Championship, and although Kinvara started that game well, getting an early 1-1 to 0-0 lead, it was Portumna who were the victors in Kinvara by 4-6 to 1-2. This time around we can be sure that the Kinvara management will be hoping for a stronger performance and they will have to battle for every ball and make their opponents work for it. This should be a good match and we can expect that the winning margin for whoever wont be much.
