Junior B Hurling League
Nenagh Éire Óg 1-11 Kildangan 3-5
A Kildangan goal in the fifth minute of injury time denied Éire Óg a deserved win in the junior B hurling league at Puckane this afternoon.
Éire Óg shipped two goals in the opening half, but a Gary Howard point and three Darragh Walsh frees left six between them at the break – 0-4 to 2-4.
Éire Óg, who were now playing with the wind, started the second half in enterprising mood with points from Aidan Healy, Philip Hickey, Gary Howard and an absolute cracker from Darragh Walsh closing the gap to two points (0-8 to 2-4).
Éire Óg continued to dominate and Mark Higginbottom plundered a goal to present Nenagh with the lead in the 37th minute – 1-8 to 2-4.
A Philip Hickey point and a Darragh Walsh free extended the Éire Óg lead to three points (1-10 to 2-4) before Kildangan managed their first score of the second half in the 57th minute.
On the hour mark Philip Hickey struck for Éire Óg’s eleventh point, but in the fifth minute of injury time Kildangan batted in an equalising goal following a long-range free.
Éire Óg’s remaining junior B hurling league group games are against Silvermines, Borrisokane and Newport. Well done lads.
