KINVARA......0-22; BALLYGAR.......2-8
After last Wednesdays heavy defeat to Portumna, Kinvara minors bounced back with a solid win over North Galway visitors Ballygar, in Kinvara pitch last Sunday evening.

The Kinvara lads played a better brand of hurling this time around, and passed the ball around well in front. They led 0-12 to 1-3 at half-time, and continued the good point scoring in the second half.

Although this was a solid win and much improved performance, there are still areas for improvement. Again we leaked two goals to Ballygar and that must be tightened up more. Also, we scored 22 times and no goals. A time will come when goals will be needed in a match, and the lack of those scored from open play will have to improved on by all six forwards.

Kinvara side:
Darragh Kilkelly, Philip McNamara, David Burke (capt), Stephen Bermingham, James O'Hara, Jason O'Connor, Caolan McMahon, Tadhg Reynolds, Ruairi Cullinane, Ronan Kilkelly, Eanna Linnane, Conor Morgon, Dylan O'Hanrahan, Nessan O'Hanrahan, Conor Whelan.
Subs on:
Thomas Kavanagh, Rory O'Dwyer and Shane Byrne
