Our Minor B hurlers were narrowly defeated by Kilavullen, when the sides met in the North Cork league, at the home venue, on Tuesday evening , last week. The final score-line read Kilavullen 0-19 Kildorrery 2-12. For this game Kildorrery were without four of the side which lined out against the same opposition, in the abandoned championship game, the previous week. Nevertheless, they put in a brave performance and could be deemed a trifle unlucky not to have at least shared the points.
Team and scorers: Cathal Walsh-O’Grady, Richard Hurley, Niall Higgins, David Hunter, Tony Watson, Anthony Crowley, Kevin Noonan, Paddy Hartnett, Michael Caplice, Tim O’Sullivan, Eddie O’Regan, Eddie O’Connell, Sean Cunningham, Cathal Harrington 1-8 (0-3fs), Paddy Pigott 0-3, Sub.
