JOE McDONAGH CUP FINAL
For the third straight year the Kerry hurlers contested the Joe McDonagh Cup Final, on Saturday 4th June and it was another tough day in Croke Park for Kerry as they lose to Antrim on a final scoreline of Antrim 5-22 Kerry 4-24
A game that they were chasing right from the start with the concession of 2 goals inside the first 10 minutes and they trailed a very sharp Antrim side at half time by 10 points.
Kerry to their credit gave a much better second half performance and had the Antrim backs in trouble anytime the ball was played into the inside line, with substitute Jordan Conway lighting up the Kerry attack with two second half goals, Kerry as they have done many times over the season kept going and kept pushing to the end and had a late late goal from Padraig Boyle in what proved to be the last puck of the game.
Both teams now move on to play the Preliminary All Ireland Quarter Finals with Antrim playing Cork and Kerry taking on Wexford at Austin Stack’s Park on Saturday 11th June at 2.00p.m. The Crotta club was represented on the panel by Sean Weir (Wing back), Jordan Conway came on as sub on and scored 2-02, Cillian Trant and James Sheehan. The Kilflynn/Crotta area was well represented in Croke Park to support Kerry players and their management. Wish the Kerry Senior Hurlers and their management, especially the Crotta players in the All-Ireland Quarter Final against Wexford on Saturday.
