Munster P.P. Schools Under 15 “C” Hurling Championship 1/4 Final
Scoil Ruáin, Killenaule 12-07
St. Declan’s, Kilmacthomas 5-10
Scoil Ruáin booked their place in the semi-final of the Munster Under 15 “C” Hurling championship with a hard-earned win over St. Declan’s, Kilmacthomas.. While the score-line suggests a facile victory for the South Tipp school, a late three goal salvo from sharpshooter, Louie Doyle, gave the scoreboard a flattering look. In truth, St. Declan’s fought doggedly right throughout this contest and thoroughly tested the mettle of their opponents. Some heroics from goalkeeper, Liam Miskella, and some frantic, last-gasp defending denied Kilmacthomas on a number of occasions. Scoil Ruáin will head into the semi-final in buoyant mood but must try to iron out some defensive frailties if they are to progress to the final.
Under 17 Hurling
Scoil Ruain’s U17 hurlers had a great win over Colaiste Phobail Roscrea in the pre liminary quarter final of the U17 Fitzgerald Shield County Championship. The game was played in Templetuohy with conditions very good considering all the recent bad weather. The Killenaule lads were slow out of the blocks and were a point down at half-time on a scoreline of 1-7 to 1-6. The second half proved different as the Killenaule players got to grips with the Roscrea challenge and finished very strongly to win on a scoreline of 3-16 to 3-6. A great team effort but a massive challenge awaits after the Easter holidays as Scoil Ruain will have to play the High School Clonmel in the quarter final.
