AHL round-up: Cats beat Galway

Waterford edge out Tipp in thriller

Kilkenny withstood a fierce fightback from Galway as they ran out 0-21 to 1-14 winners over the team they beat in last September’s All-Ireland final at Nowlan Park.

TJ Reid starred for the Cats as he helped them to a huge 0-13 to 0-5 advantage at the break.

Brian Cody’s side then looked to be cruising to a straightforward win as they led 0-16 to 0-9 midway through the second period.

However, the Tribesmen finally got going and began to reel in Kilkenny with Joe Canning’s goal reducing the deficit to a single point.

But the hosts rallied and points from Richie Hogan and man-of-the-match Reid saw Kilkenny home for a second win on-the-spin.

Austin Gleeson hit a brilliant injury-time winner for Waterford as they came from behind to beat Tipperary in a cracking encounter at Semple Stadium.

The Deise looked beaten until Gleeson’s intervention in the fourth minute of added time, nailing a superb free from 100m to earn them their fourth successive win.

Tipp were five points ahead not long after the break but Derek McGrath’s men then hit 1-4 without reply to take the lead.

The game ebbed and flowed but Tipp looked to have made the decisive play with two minutes of normal time remaining, John McGrath firing home a fantastic goal after good play from to edge one point ahead.

However, Patrick Curran’s ninth point of the day levelled the game before Gleeson’s brilliant late, late point earned Waterford their 10th league win in-a-row.

In Division 1B Limerick proved too good for Offaly beating them by 1-19 to 0-14 in O’Connor Park in Tullamore.

Declan Hannon’s first half goal gave them a 1-10 to 0-8 lead at the half-time whistle and Offaly never looked like they could overturn it.

The hosts did manage to reduce the arrears to just four points but TJ Ryan’s men upped the ante to cruise home by an eight-point margin.

At Austin Stack Park in Tralee, Wexford crushed Kerry by a whopping 2-25 to 0-8.

Conor McDonald's early three-pointer sent the Model County clear and the game was effectively over as a contest as they held a 1-13 to 0-4 lead at the interval.
