Kiladangan 3-12 - 1-12 Toomevara

Kiladangan progressed to the semi-finals of the Tipperary Senior Hurling Championship following a hard earned six point win over Toomevara in Cloughjordan today.

Two first half goals from Willie Connors and Dan O’Meara helped Kiladangan into a 2-7 to 0-8 half time lead, the victors also missing a penalty with Barry Hogan’s effort rising over the bar.

A Mark McCarthy goal at the start of the second half ignited Toomevara’s recovery and on 39 minutes they were back level but a Joe Gallagher goal four minutes got Kiladangan going again as conditions deteriorated following a deluge with Toomevara unable to reel them in a second time.
