Minors pull off fantastic comeback in the rain

MHC Div 2 Championship
Kiltale 1-14 Rathmolyon 1-11

Our minors were in action on Wednesday evening in their second game of the Div 2 Championship at home to Rathmolyon in rain-sodden conditions in Kiltale.

After securing a point from the first match away to Dunderry it was important to get a victory as only the top two in the 6-team division qualify directly for the final.

Kiltale started slowly and Rathmolyon, aided by the wind and rain, raced to an 8-point half-time lead.

After some tough talking in the dressing room at half time the lads pulled out a fantastic second half performance, outscoring the visitors by 1-09 to 0-01 in the final 30 minutes – an eleven point turn-around and that with he wind having died down considerably in the second half.

Inspired by captain Gavan McVann driving the team forward the home side didn’t give Rathmolyon a second on the ball, winning the vast majority of possession which led to the scores and fouls in the teeming rain which led to frees expertly converted by the returning Eoghan Frayne and a well taken goal by Sean Hughes as well as points from Evan Clarke and Donal Matthews.

Scorers: Eoghan Frayne 0-09 (5 frees), Sean Hughes 1-01, Evan Clarke 0-03, Donal Matthews 0-01
