Kiladangan are the first team through to this years Tipperary senior hurling championship semi-finals.
They’ve beaten Toomevara on a scoreline of 3-16 to 18 points in Semple Stadium.
Speaking to Tipp FM after the game, Kiladangan manager Brian Lawlor was pleased with his sides performance…
“Yeah we’re just very happy. Obviously the objective was to get the win. We’re delighted to be in the draw now for next weekend’s semi-finals and we didn’t pick up any injuries and we had nobody sent off so, you know, it’s just a really good day’s work and we’re really happy with that performance.”
Kiladangan managed to clinch three goals in the game and Brian says they were fortunate to get the scores:
“I think one of those goals now was very lucky in fairness. But the other two goals were well-worked and we could have even had one or two more in the first half. You know, when the space opened up we did well again today and we got those goals.”
