On Friday evening last week our Intermediate hurlers were hosts to Tracton for their Division 2 League game. After a well-contested and entertaining game, the visitors ran out winners on the final score-line of 0-19 to 0-15. Kildorrery lined out without the Kelly brothers, Liam, and David, Willie Coffey, Peter O’Brien and Shane O’Neill of the side which played Castlelyons in the same competition, a month ago The opening period was evenly enough contested with Tracton in front by the minimum at the end of the first quarter 0-5 to 0-4, with four of their five points having come from frees.

The second quarter continued in more or less the same evenly contested manner with the sides finishing the half on level terms at 0-8 apiece. However, Tracton resumed after the break, showing more urgency and had pushed two points ahead after less than four minutes. Nevertheless, Kildorrery had not gone away and with just over four minutes of normal time left, the sides were still level . But the visitors took over for the remaining minutes to send over four more points and collect the league points. Despite this defeat, the game was a worthwhile exercise for our team, in their preparation for their forthcoming championship opener against Eire Og, this Friday evening. We wish them and their mentors the best of luck.

Team and scorers: Ian Butler, Darren McNamara, Shane Fitzgerald, Cormac O’Baoill, TomMonaghan, Michael Walsh, James O’Sullivan, Stevie Coughlan 0-2, Dylan Kent 0-1, Finbarr Stapleton 0-9 (0-7fs). Andrew O’Brien 0-2, Eamonn O’Connor 0-1, Wm Fouhy, Jamie O’Gorman. Subs. Willie Coffey for P.J.Keating, Peter O’Brien for W. Fouhy.
