Senior Hurling League 2014.
in Kinvara, Saturday 22nd Feb.


It was a tough tense encounter between neighbours Kinvara and Ardrahan, with the home side just having the edge in this opening League match for 2014, yesterday in Faiche Phadraig.

Conditions were tough going, with a strong cross wind and troubled all players, and made ball control difficult. Also, both sides were missing several regulars, and with this being both sides first competitive outing of the year, it meant that the hurling wasnt necessary pretty at times.

Kinvara led at the interval by Kinvara 1-1, Ardrahan 0-2. Ardrahan did try their best to get back into this, but on a day of low scoring, the Kinvara goal in the first half proved the main difference between the sides.
