Kerry win U-21 'B' hurling title

Kerry 2-18 Roscommon 1-15

Goals from Shane Nolan and substitute Thomas Moloney in the final ten minutes ensured Kerry were crowned All-Ireland Under-21 'B' Hurling champions at a sunny Cusack Park in Ennis this afternoon.

Roscommon burst out of the blocks in the opening stages and claimed a goal lead after just two minutes, when a David Dolan sideline cut was doubled on and slotted to the net by John Coyne.

However, Kerry had completely turned the game around by the interval.

They were aided by an excellent display of point-scoring from Dara O'Connell and James Flaherty to take a 0-11 to 1-3 lead.

Roscommon made a great start to the second half, scoring eight of the next nine points to give themselves a 1-11 to 0-12 lead. Niall Kilroy scored four points in the third quarter.

The eventual winners kept plugging away and with O'Connell very much on song and Shane Nolan and Thomas Moloney bagging late goals, Kerry prevailed by six points.
