U16 Football
Well done to our U16 footballers who got their 3rd win of the championship with a two point win over Clara. K/K got off to a super start and led by 1-7 to no score after 15 minutes with Dan Murray getting the goal. Clara responded with the next four points and the sides then traded a couple of scores to leave it 1-10 to 0-6 at the break. Cathal Donoghue hit K/K’s second goal in the 45th minute to leave K/K 2-12 to 0-9 ahead but Clara rallied strongly and got the next four points in a row to reduce the gap to 5. Clara were then awarded a penalty which they converted to leave it 2-12 to 1-13 with just under 5 minutes to go. That was to be the last score of the game as K/K held out for the win. Team & Scorers: Conor Bracken, Sean Kilmartin, Cathal Kilmartin, Conor Ryan, Stephen Cooney, Colm Leonard, Dan Gleeson, Cathal Donoghue (1-1), Dan Murray (1-3), Niall Hogan (0-1), Eoin Gleeson (0-1), Óisin Keating (0-1f), Liam White (0-1), Jack Screeney (0-4), Sean Buckley.

Minor Hurling
Well done to our Minor hurlers who began their championship with a 0-20 to 3-8 victory over Coolderry in Kilcormac on Wednesday evening last. Coolderry got a goal from the penalty spot in the 2nd minute and had edged into a 1-4 to 0-3 lead midway through the half. K/K got four points in a row in the space of 5 minutes to level the game up and the teams went to the break level at 1-5 to 0-8. K/K made a flying start to the second half and scored seven points in a row by the 41st minute with Cathal Kiely, Niall Egan, Conor Quinn, Dan Murray, Kevin Daly and Bryan Mullen all getting points and K/K led by 0-19 to 1-8 in the 52nd minute. Two late goals from Coolderry led to a close finish but a sideline cut from Bryan Mullen ensured a three point win for K/K. Team & Scorers: Dan Gleeson, Eoin Kilmartin, Eoin Troy, Eamon Bracken, Joe Daly, Cathal Kiely (0-3, 2f), Daniel Conway, Conor Quinn (0-6, 2f, 2 ’65), Cathal Donoghue (0-2), Kevin Daly (0-1), Bryan Mullen (0-3, 1sc), Conor Lowry (0-1), Ciaran Moore, Lochlann Kavanagh (0-1), Philip Cooney.
