Kil­shan­nig 7-2 Mill­street 5-6

BREATH-TAK­ING stuff from start to fin­ish be­fore Kil­shan­nig snatched a thrilling two point vic­tory over Mill­street in the Kelly Brothers Rebel Óg North Cork U12AI Hurl­ing League Fi­nal played in Ban­teer.

From an ab­sorb­ing and fast paced tus­sle, both sides gave it their all yet cru­cially Kil­shan­nig fin­ished stronger to de­liver telling scores to sway a mar­vel­lous tus­sle. Right from the off, Kil­shan­nig laid down a marker, ex­cel­lent com­bined hurl­ing al­lowed Ben Noo­nan , Den Joe O’Rior­dan and Kevin Con­nolly find the net.

Mill­street re­grouped and made a game of it , goals by Cian De­nis O’Connor and Fionn O’Dwyer cut the deficit 6-0 to 3-4 at the break. And the Mill­street im­prove­ment con­tin­ued on the turn around, goals from O’Connor and Stephen Lyons g nudged Mill­street ahead.

The clos­ing 10 min­utes made for an en­gag­ing spec­ta­cle, Kil­shan­nig ral­ly­ing bril­liantly , a Jack O’Han­lon goal squared up mat­ters be­fore points from Noo­nan and O’Han­lon de­cided the out­come of a com­pelling con­test.
