Ballinkillen 1-03 MLR 1-06

MLR started strongly with early points from Ciaran Kavanagh and Ben Coleman, followed up with a classy goal from a very tight angle by Joe Dundon. Despite determined effort and a number of good chances, Ballinkillen failed to register a score in the first half, to leave the visitors ahead 1-03 to no score at half time.

In the second half Ballinkillen moved Eoin Whelan from goal to full forward and it nearly paid off with Eoin bagging a goal and 2 points and looking dangerous every time he caught the ball. Jack McLoughlin added a pointed free for the home side, but MLR were patient and continued to work together to create scoring chances, picking off a further 3 points and running out deserving winners on the day.
Tadhg Doran and Jordan Brennan defended stoutly for MLR throughout as did Patrick Kavanagh and Donnacha Murphy for the home side.
All credit to both teams for a great display of hurling.
