JBHC Semi-Final: Na Fianna 1-13, Kiltale 3-09

    Heartache for Na Fianna Junior Hurlers in semi-final loss.

    Na Fianna and Kiltale met in the Junior B Hurling semi-final in Dunshaughlin last Friday evening. It was a fast paced contest with pressure applied by both teams.

    Na Fianna will feel this was a game that ‘got away’ as they maintained the lead right up to the last twenty seconds of the game and had eight points to spare against their opponents at half time, 1-7, 0-2.

    Kiltale were always going to step up their performance in the second half but Na Fianna worked tirelessly and together to keep control of the game. The last five minutes saw Kiltale crowd out Na Fianna’s backs and goal keeper to seek out a goal. They got what they looked for by burying the ball to the bottom left corner of the net in the last twenty seconds of the game. It was too late for Na Fianna as their time was up.

    All Na Fianna players put in a gallant performance but unfortunately, it wasn’t to be their night.

    Full time: Na Fianna 1-13, Kiltale 3-9
