Minor Dubs bow out of 2013 Championship

Date 21 Jun 2013
Home Team       Away Team Dublin 2-07 0-17 Kilkenny
Venue Parnell Park

Kilkenny beat Dublin by 4 points

First half goals by Jonathan Treacy and Chris Bennett - and a lead of 3 points at the short whistle - was not enough to see Dublin progress in this Leinster Minor semi Final. Throw in at the start coincided with a downpour of biblical proportions, which made for difficult conditions for both teams, with lots of early mistakes. With 20 minutes gone, Kilkenny were in danger of pulling away. However, Dubs goalkeeper Treacy came forward to score a cracking penalty and shortly afterwards Chris Bennett scored a great goal to give the Dubs a 3 pount lead at half time.

After the break the cats scored several without reply and steadliy gained the upper hand. Dublin were struggling and didn't score until 17 minutes into the half. A further two points were all they could muster in the half, as Kilkenny ran out winners by 4 points.
