Kilnadeema-Leitrim qualified for the final of the All-Ireland junior “B” hurling championship following a three point victory over their Cork counterparts on Sunday last in a game played at Raheenagh, Co.Limerick.
The winners lead by nine points to five at half time with the Cork side failing to score from play in the first half- they relied on pointed frees from Liam Cronin and Barry Murphy.
A youthful Kilnadeema-Leitrim side had Liam Kelly in good scoring form and he was accurate from frees and from play as the winners held a four point interval advantage.
Kilnadeema-Leitrim were able to hold onto their advantage in the second half with Vinnie Kenny and Kevin Roche scoring 0-5 between them. Aside from those mentioned, Cathal Nevin also pointed for the Joe Kenny managed side.
In the second half, Liam Cronin, Jack O’Connor and former Clare All-Ireland winning player, Barry Murphy were on target for the Cork club, who on the day was well held by Kilnadeema-Leitrim full back Aaron Murray.
Kilnadeema-Leitrim now qualify to play Thurles Sarsfields in the final on February 18th after they defeated John Lockes in the other semi-final.
