St. Kieran’s V Austin Stacks Replay in Scart
It was heartening to see all four Knocknagoshel players acquit themselves well when representing the club with St. Kieran’s in the county championship. Leading on a score of 1-9 to 0-4 at half time St Kieran’s looked like they would get one over on Austin Stacks.
However, the introduction of Kieran Donaghy inspired his side to make a comeback and the game finished level after extra time on a score of 1-13 to 0-16.
The re-play is fixed for Pat Casey Park, Scartaglin on the coming Saturday evening at 6:30pm.
