Hard luck to the Millstreet U16 hurlers, who were defeated in the Duhallow U16 League Final where they were defeated by South Kerry 5-14 to 2-13, after extra time.
Match report below from Kerry Coiste na nÓg (The opposite side)
At the end of the first quarter, South Kerry was leading by two points thanks to some accurate shooting by Dave O’Connor and Kevin Sullivan. The teams then exchanged points and it remained level until Millstreet got a goal just before half-time, who then went ahead by 3 at half time 1-5 to 5 points.
In the second half the intensity remained but was trailing by 3 points in the last quarter until Anthony Keogh finally found the Millstreet net with five minutes remaining. Both teams exchanged further points and finished level which forced the game into extra time. At the end of normal time it finished 1-10 apiece.
Millstreet swept to an exciting victory over Kanturk in the Duhallow U12 Hurling Championship Final played in Meelin. From a high scoring contest, Millstreet claimed a 7-8 to 57 triumph. Credit Millstreet for playing some snappy hurling where there was much to admire on the stickwork and energy of Millstreet’s effort throughout the field.
Opponents Kanturk contributed to a marvellous encounter yet at the end of the hour, they weren’t good enough to get the measure of the Millstreet’s superior challenge.
