Golden-Kilfeacle and Kickhams played a draw in the Dundrum House Hotel minor A hurling championship at Golden on last Wednesday evening.

Kickhams had the better of the exchanges in the first half and this was reflected in their lead of 1-10 to 1-7 at the interval.

Golden-Kilfeacle put in a much stronger performance but Kickhams came back to go ahead near the end. However a superb goal from Seanie O’Halloran just before full time meant that both sides finished honours even. Both sides will be relieved to have taken a point from the game.

Golden-Kilfeacle: Niall Fogarty, Robert Wade, Kevin Landy, Ethan Rogers, Cian O’Connell, Shane O’Connell (0-2), Conor Ryan, James Casey (0-4), David Wade, Daniel Currivan (0-1), Ger Barlow (1-2), Jonathan Wade, Thomas Wade, Seanie O’Halloran (1-3), Kieran Burke (0-2).

Kickhams: Dean Nolan, Killian O’Meara, Brian Hand, Evan Hickey, John Ryan, Kilian Loughman, Sean Butler, Elliot Thompson, Brendan Ryan (0-8), Pádraig O’Carroll (0-2), Joseph Lonergan, Ger Browne (0-4), Thomas Hayes (1-0), Eoin Heffernan.

Subs: Cathal Ryan for Eoin Heffernan, Walter O’Carroll (1-0) for Thomas Hayes.

Referee: David Grogan (Aherlow).
