Hurling news with Tommy   04/03/2020

Hurling

The Kerry senior hurlers remain lost their 100% record in the 2020 Allianz Hurling League, Division 2A when losing to Antrim last Sunday by 2 – 20 to 2 – 14. 


For Antrim, also unbeaten to date, this was their fourth win of the campaign and leaves them at the top of the Division with a game to play.


Kerry could still progress to the final, depending on the outcome of the Division’s outstanding fixture next Sunday, when Offaly have a home tie with Antrim at Tullamore.


In a rather complicated finale, a win or a draw for Antrim would see them advance to play Kerry in the decider. However, an Offaly win would see the midlanders – currently on six points – go above Kerry and into second place on scoring difference. 


Antrim are not yet guaranteed a place in the final but only defeat by more than 18 points can see them ousted, in which case it would be a Kerry-Offaly decider.
