Kilskyre/Moylagh booked their place in the U21 hurling final on Sunday with a very impressive victory over a fancied Ratoath side in Trim. After ten minutes of this game at two points a piece it looked like a game that would go to the wire, but when the North Meath combination of Kilskyre and Moylagh settled in there was only going to be one winner. With a superbly taken goal from Luke Nolan and some well taken points from Willie Mc Grath, Kilskyre/Moylagh went in at half time 1-9 to 0-5 ahead. In the second half the North Meath men started where they left off with Colm Melia in outstanding form at full back with his long clearances to setup scores for Charles Brogan, Willie Mc Grath and Niall Farrelly. Kilskyre/Moylagh were in top gear with Seanie and Michael Geraghty dominating mid-field throughout and it was Seanie who setup Niall Farrelly for his well taken goal. The game boiled over a few times near the end but when Willie Mc Grath put a 21 yard free into the roof of the net it knocked any intentions of a comeback out of Ratoaths minds. Best for Kilskyre/Moylagh were in goal with some fine saves was Ciaran Hannon, in front of him the outstanding Colm Melia and well supported by Ewan Feeney, James Baugh, Gary Reilly and Johnathon O'Reilly. In midfield the Geraghty brothers, whom you could toss a coin to see which of them would get man of the match. Upfront again the outstanding Willie Mc Grath, well supported by Charles Brogan, Niall Farrelly, Kieran Foley and Luke Nolan. With a final score of 3-13 to 1-8 Kilskyre/Moylagh go into the final of this U21 B Hurling in great form and with the intentions of going one step further.
