Pier Head Minor A...little to separate teams!   14/09/2012

We've had all four of the quarter-finals played in his year's PIER HEAD Minor A Hurling Championship, and we've had two draws! With one of the replays already played, we should know this Sunday evening who will join Tommie Larkins, Athenry and Loughrea in this year's semi-finals. After last weekend's drawn match, Turloughmore and Kilnadeema-Leitrim will face each other again this coming Sunday 16th Sept in Loughrea at 4:00pm with a place in the final four at stake.

Here's the story so far in the years PIER HEAD BAR & RESTAURANT, KINVARA Minor A Hurling Championship............

In the first quarter-final, Gort and Tommie Larkins played out a thrilling draw on 26th August, and last Friday they met again with the Woodford outfit coming out on top after another thrilling encounter. The two sides were level at half-time but Tommie Larkins played an impressive second half to win by 10 points (final score: 4-16 to 3-9)

The second quarter-final was also played last Friday evening and this match too ended in a draw. This time around it was the turn of Turloughmore and Kilnadeema-Leitrim to entertain and that they did with another exciting drawn match. Turlough led at the interval by 1-9 to 1-8, and in the final quarter led by four points. However Kilnadeema-Leitrim rallied back and shot the final four points to snatch the draw (final score: 1-18 to 2-15).

The third quarter-final saw Athenry beat neighbours Clarinbridge as they aim to reach their third minor final in a row. It took a huge late effort from the winners to secure the victory, as they were behind 2-8 to 0-9 at half-time, while they were also behind 2-9 to 0-11 reaching the final quarter. They scored the games 6 final points to claim the win (final score: 0-17 to 2-9).

The fourth quarter-final saw another local rivalry match as Loughrea proved much too good for the challenge of 2011 winners Tynagh-Abbey-Duniry. The lakesiders led 0-12 to 0-5 at the break, and continued their good show to run out winners (final score: 1-21 to 0-10).
