IT’LL BE AN all-Kilkenny clash again in this year’s Leinster post-primary senior A colleges hurling final.
That was the outcome after Kilkenny CBS won their semi-final re-fixture this afternoon to set up a meeting in the decider with local rivals St Kieran’s.
Kilkenny CBS defeated Good Counsel New Ross by 2-10 to 0-10 today in Thomastown, after the original fixture was abandoned last Saturday when Good Counsel player Jim Ryan, from the Rower-Inistioge club in Kilkenny, suffered a head injury.
Thankfully it emerged that Ryan had not suffered a serious injury and he was subsequently discharged from hospital.
In today’s game, goals in either half from Sean Bolger and Conor Drennan proved crucial in sealing victory for Kilkenny CBS. Their six-point win sets up a final against St Kieran’s on Saturday 25 February.
The pair of Kilkenny hurling nurseries met last year when St Kieran’s ran out 2-12 to 1-11 victors, while in total it’s the sixth time in the last eight years that teams from the two schools have met in the final of this competition.
