Kiltale got their Senior Championship ambitions back on track with a win against a strong Rathmolyon team in testing and breezy conditions in Boardsmill. Kiltale took the game to Rathmolyon in the first half, scoring 1-6 against the strong breeze. Kiltale had to work hard, though; three excellent first half points from Ian Douglas who played his best game of the year ensured kiltale were able to keep with Rathmolyon until they got to half time. In the second half Kiltale showed what they really were made of, and played exactly the way everyone knows they can, leaving Rathmolyon in their wake. Man of the Match accolades went to Douglas, though one could hardly pick a single performer from an outstanding Kiltale 15.
