HURLING: Galway Minor Team to face Kilkenny Announced

It is the same 15 that started their victory over Laois last weekend.

Both Galway and Kilkenny have recorded two victories, thus far, over Antrim and Laois respectively and have qualified for the knockout stages of the Leinster minor hurling championship.

That said, a win for either side on Friday (7th April) will see them progress as group winners to the semi-final stage, while the losers will play a quarter final match.

If the game ends in a draw, Galway, by virtue of a greater scoring advantage, would top the group.

The game takes place in Nowlan Park, on Good Friday, with a 5pm start. It will be streamed live on Galway Bay Fm.

1. Shane Murray (Kilconieron)

2. Thomas Blake (Oranmore/Maree)
