Intermediate “A” hurling Championship Ballygarvan vs Kilbrittain in Brinny

Sunday May 3rd @ 3.30pm

 Ballygarvan suffered a one point defeat to Kilbrittain in the Intermediate first round hurling championship played at Brinny. Ballygarvan certainly hit the ground running and were 1-05 to 0-o2 ahead after fifteen minutes. Ballygarvan dominated the early exchanges and fully deserved to be ahead. Kilbrittain struggled to cope with the flowing attacks from the Ballygarvan forwards with Ken Ashman, Gary White & Mark Kennefick at the heart of every Ballygarvan attack. Mattew Riordan popped up with to excellent points from Mid field.  Peter Murphy was solid in goal and Captain Joe Spillane in control in the full back line. Ballygarvan were in total control of this game but failed to capitalise on at least three goal opportunities which would of almost certainly finished this game as a contest. Kilbrittain to their credit kept battling away and were rewarded with a goal which brought them right back into this game.  They tapped over two more points which left the scoreline at 1-06 to 1-06 at half time. This rattled Ballygarvan’s confidence and were now chasing this game. The second half was a very low scoring affair and the game ended with a one point victory for Kilbrittain.  If Ballygarvan can re-capture the form they showed in the first 15minutes of this game , Ballygarvan will still be a force in this years Championship.
