NSHC Kildangan go through at Kilruane’s expense

Kildangan 1-18 Kilruane MacDonagh’s 1-13

An improved second half performance helped Kildangan qualify for the quarter finals of the Hibernian Inn North Tipperary senior hurling championship following a five point win over Kilruane MacDonaghs at Toomevara last Sunday.

Trailing by a point at half time, Kildangan used the wind advantage in the second half to steer them towards a deserved victory and they will meet Templederry in the quarter final in two weeks time.

This neighbourly clash was expected to produce a great game but the big crowd left disappointed. Scores were level six times in the opening half and this helped maintain an interest but in truth the opening half lacked urgency with too much short play and not enough direct hurling with a few exceptions where Brian O’Meara and Tommy Connors picked up great individual scores from play and frees.
