Kilkenny Honda Centre U-17 Hurling League
Galmoy/Windgap 1-11 Young Irelands 2-2
April 2nd 2018
The Galmoy/Windgap U-17 hurlers made a winning start to their 2018 campaign with a good victory over Young Irelands Gowran at a very foggy Windgap on Easter Monday morning April 2nd. After making a good start, Galmoy/Windgap lead 0-7 to 0-1 at the interval, the Gowran point coming from a Jason Brennan free in the 29th minute. With the pitch proving very soft, good hurling was not always possible but Galmoy/Windgap kept up their dominance, and when Mark McCoy hit their goal they were always going to win, as they restricted Young Irelands to just one score from play. The next outing for these sides will be on Wednesday April 11th.

Conditions were tough for both sides and a pre match shower was no help on a heavily sodden pitch. Nevertheless,both sides strove manfully to play constructive hurling, with the visitors leading all the way and withstanding a late Blacks & Whites fightback.
