A strong 2nd quarter put K/K in a commanding position with further goals from Dan Currams, Thomas Geraghty and Ciarán Slevin leaving K/K 4-12 to 0-6 ahead at the break.

Hard luck to our Junior A hurlers who lost out by the narrowest of margins to Shinrone in Shinrone on Saturday evening, 0-14 to 0-13.

Trevor Fletcher’s frees kept K/K in touch throughout the half and Anthony Kilmartin scored a long range point with the last score of the half to leave it 0-10 to 0-7 to Shinrone at the interval. Scores were hard to come by early in the second half and a free from Trevor Fletcher in the 41st minute was the first score of the half. K/K followed up with 3 of the next 4 points through Fletcher, Joey Lynch and Aidan Bracken to leave the game up with 10 minutes to go. Another brace of frees left K/K 0-13 to 0-11 up with less than 5 minutes to go but K/K hit four wides in succession before a brace from Shinrone had the game back level as it went into injury time.
