KERRY MINOR HURLERS
Meath, Roscommon, Westmeath and Kildare progressed to the last four of the ESB All-Ireland minor 'B' hurling championship following victories on Saturday 7th August .
Meath walloped Mayo by 6-28 to 0-2 at Pairc Tailteann, Roscommon fended off a late rally from beaten Ulster finalists Armagh to win by 2-15 to 1-13. The meeting of Westmeath and Wicklow in Arklow was another painfully one-sided affair which ended in a 7-26 to 0-7 victory for the visitors.
The thrilling game of the day was in Newbridge where Kildare knocked out reigning champions Kerry with a 2-24 to 4-17 victory after extra-time. Goals from Daniel Casey and Shane Dunne gave Kerry an early lead before Kildare hit 1-5 without reply to lead by 2-11 to 2-6 at the interval.
The Kingdom battled back in the second half to force extra-time and looked set for victory when Padraig Boyle's goal put them ahead in the additional period. But four unanswered points, including the winner from a Conor Kenny '65, handed the Lilywhites the spoils, and the Kerry minor hurlers bid to retain the All-Ireland B title came to an end. The Crotta hurling was well represented on the Kerry team at centre field by Sean Weir who scored a point.

COUNTY MINOR TITLE FOR MINOR HURLERS
The Crotta/ Lixnaw minor Hurlers had a convincing 4-12 to 1-10 win over Causeway in the final of the county minor hurling league Div 1 in Abbeydorney on Monday night 26th July. Causeway opened their account with a goal after three minutes but points from Sean Weir, Tommy Allen and Ricky Heffernan quickly settled Lixnaw/Crotta who often struggled in the first half against an eager Causeway team that were minus the unfortunate Murish Delaney. Lixnaw/Crotta began to grow in confidence and goals from Aidan O'Sullivan, Darragh McAuliffe and Conor O'Brien helped them to a 3-5 to 1-6 half time win. Lixnaw/Crotta had the breeze at their backs for the second half but Causeway were first of the mark with a point. Ricky Heffernan quickly replied with a point to help Lixnaw/Crotta regain their composure. In fairness Causeway were always able to pose a threat keeping the Lixnaw/Crotta defence on their toes where Tom McElligott, Liam Power, Brendan Brosnan and Tom Quille stood out. Man of the match Tommy Allen opened a seven point gap when he smashed home a great goal ten minutes from the end. Lixnaw/Crotta showed the more hunger from here on in turning the screw with scores from Tommy Allen Brendan Brosnan and Darragh McAuliffe. Referee John Ross blew for full time much to the delight of the large number of Lixnaw/Crotta supporters. It might not have been a classic but mission accomplished at the same time.
This team was captained by Sean Weir, Crotta, who was an excellent team captain during this competition.
Scorers; Tommy Allen; 1-5. Darragh McAuliffe; 1-2. Aidan O'Sullivan; 1-0.Conor O'Brien; 1-0. Ricky Heffernan; 0-3. Brendan Brosnan; 0-1. Sean Weir; 0-1.
After the match Ger McCarthy on behalf of the Kerry county Board presented the trophy to Lixnaw/Crotta captain Sean Weir.
Well done to the team management of Padraig Fitzmaurice, Joe McAuliffe, James Flaherty and Tom Nolan.
Team; Cathal McCarthy, Tom McElligott, Liam Power, Maurice McElligott, Dylan Roche, Brendan Brosnan, Tom Quille, Sean Weir, Tomas O'Keeffe, Aidan O'Sullivan, Tommy Allen, Aidan Prendiville, Ricky Heffernan, Darragh McAuliffe, Keith Silles.
