On an ideal day for hockey a thrilling Super 8’s ‘first years’ match took place between Gorey and Kilkenny at Kilkenny College on Saturday and the success went Gorey’s way.
Gorey opened the scoring with a beautiful goal from a mid-field move, but this was followed by a goal from Kilkenny, which soon became the pattern of the half with end-to-end goal scoring and action from both teams with great play from all the players.
Kilkenny went in 6-5 ahead at the break.
After a small change in the midfield and forward lineout for Gorey, the visiting North Wexford side soon equaled with a super goal.
A free at the half-way line resulted in a goal and Gorey’s number of goals on the scoreboard reached eight.
Kilkenny certainly were in no mood for giving up and forced the Gorey defenders to work hard as the action continued to move end-to-end in the second half with a fine display of team work and hockey skills from both teams.
Final score; GOREY 8 KILKENNY 6.
