U16 A1 Hurling at knockout stages

posted 29 Jul 2013, 04:56 by Unknown user
Well the group stages are complete and we are ready for the knockout stages in this year's U16 A1 hurling championship and shield. Unfortunately for Kinvara the campaign did not go according to plan, and instead of the targeted top four finish, we must now instead face a shield semi-final. 

On the championhsip side, it looks like Kilconieron who have impressed most so far, and they face TAD in their semi-final. TAD were going well but two late defeats pushed them down the ranking and to 4th place. Athenry and Ardrahan both finish strongly to claim 2nd and 3rd places ahead of the close challenge from Killimor.

In the shield, it is the meeting of neighbours, as South Galway clubs Kinvara and Gort meet in one semi-final, while the East Galway duo of Killimor and Kiltormer meet in the other. 

Its all to play for in the four semi-finals, and we are left with a exciting prospect in the run in.
