O'Loughlin Gaels 2:15 to 0:16 Rower Inistioge.
A decent 2nd half performance helped to build on the 3 point score advantage earned through the first 30mins. Danny Loughnane was alive to a deflected free taken by goal keeper Stephen Murphy in search of his 3rd conversion of the game. This gave the Gaels a bit of distance between the sides that they would not relinquish to the end. Brian Hogan got up to the pace of the game in the second period also and was rewarded with a fine point of his own...and Mark Kelly was introduced late in the game and marked his return with a fine point if his own. Cian Loy continued to be a nuisance for opposition defenders earning a point for his troubles too . The result means O'Loughlins now book themselves into this years league final to be played in a couple of weeks against city rivals James Stephens. Well done to all involved.
JUNIOR B CHAMPIONSHIP FINAL SUNDAY
Junior B to Championship Final
OO'Loughlin Gaels 1-7 to 2-18 Graigue Balycallan.
The junior B's succumbed to the might of Graigue-Ballycallan this morning at Nowlan Park in what was billed to be a promising prosepct for our boys. By half time the lads were 1-3 to 0-10 behind with all 4 scores coming from Barry Hogan placed balls. A poor goalkeeping error allowing a long range effort slip into the goal keeping any thoughts of O'Loughlin Gaels triumphing alive. But the second half didnt see much improvement. The first opportunity fell to O'Loughlins but the free was missed and the winners would register a 1-4 before O'Loughlins would hit back with a converted free. A mountain to climb with 20 minutes remaining and the gaels were chasing the game. Another goal was registered within a minute and the game was up. The lads did make a couple attempts at goal but were saved by the keeper and the game would end with O'Loughlins registering just three points from play. It was a huge pity as the result was not at all reflective of the ability and efforts of this team this season. New players were introduced into adult hurling and the club can be satisfied that the conveyor belt is producing. We look forward to seeing lots more for these lads and thank them for huge effort this past few months. Well done all .

Erin's Own 2:17 to 1:18 O'Loughlin Gaels.
The Gaels looked like they had done enough to bag these points but the home side had the final say when taking the last 2 scores of the game (1-1) in the dying moments. Hard luck to all involved
