North Tipperary minor championship progressing

Thursday, 27 July 2017

KILADANGAN beat Kilruane MacDonaghs by 4-17 to 1-21 in brilliant Ger Gavin North Tipperary Minor A Hurling championship encounter at Puckane last Thursday evening. Last year's North Minor A Final runners remain unbeaten after three games.
Meanwhile Toomevara overcome Nenagh Eire Og by 3-14 to 1-7. Nenagh lined out without Conor McCarthy and Jake Morris had to cry off after ten minutes with a leg injury. Roscrea had it much too easy against Silvermines in the other game.
The next round of games will be played this week with Kilruane MacDonaghs at home to Lorrha Rovers Wednesday evening. On Thursday, Toomevara are at home to Kiladangan while Silvermines play host to Nenagh Eire Og.
The league table shows Roscrea on top with four wins from four, closely followed by Kiladangan on six point from three games, with Toomevara and Kilruane on four points each and that quartet look odds on to qualify for the semi finals while fifth placed Nenagh Eire Og are in contention but will need to win their final games against Silvermines and Roscrea with the latter going to be a tough assignment.
Lorrha Rovers and Silvermines both have to pick up a point after three defeats each.
