Key game for Kinvara in Minor A tomorrow

posted 3 Jul 2014, 12:47 by Garret Byrne
It is an important game for Kinvara minors tomorrow evening (in Kilbeacanty 7pm) as our lads face Craughwell in this key match that both sides really need to win. 

A win for Kinvara will secure our place in the quarter-finals, while defeat will mean we need to beat the fancied Gort side in our final group match. We werent at our sharpest in the last match against Kilnadeema-Leitrim, but still came out on top in that one. This game against Craughwell will be another tough one, and on top of that we have injuries to 3 key players, with two of them extremely doubtful of any game time. In saying that, there has always been lads ready to step in when required, and we have shown great resilience in being undefeated after our four matches to date. 

Craughwell got their campaign back on track last weekend with an impressive win over city side Liam Mellows. They looked sharp in that match and are always tough opposition for Kinvara. A defeat for them will leave them in a dogfight to qualify, something they will be keen to avoid.

There are two other matches being played this weekend, and we should know a lot more about the destiny of this group by Sunday evening. 

This weekend's Fixtures: 
Kinvara v Craughwell, Fri 4th July in Kilbeacanty 7pm
Kilnadeema-Leitrim v Gort, Fri 4th July
Castlegar v Tommie Larkins, Sun 6th July

(Note: Top 4 sides to qualify for the quarter-finals.)
