U14 Hurling League Shield Final: Longwood/Killyon 2-7 Trim 2-3
Longwood/Killyon's U14 hurlers produced a storming second half display to secure a deserved victory in this evening's Shield Final in Longwood.
The home team struggled to get a foothold in the opening half with only a brace of points from James Connolly to show for their endeavours.
Trim had posted 1-3 to take a 4 point lead to the break.
The second half was an altogether different story with ace marksman Connolly registering a goal and a point in the opening 3 minutes to draw the sides level.
From there on, Longwood/Killyon assumed control aided by strong performances from Cian Douglas, Denis Darby, Adam Leacy, James Connolly and Quin Fisher.
These experienced players provided a strong spine to the team and were helped by their younger counterparts, many of whom are still U12.
The future looks bright!
Congrats to the entire panel and their mentors Niamh Burke, Enda Dixon, Lar Tyrrell, Paddy Doyle and Eamonn Darby.
