Kilkenny fight back to win Leinster title

Galway overhauled by Cats

Kilkenny have won their 71st Leinster SHC title after they came from five points down to convincingly beat Galway by 1-26 to 0-22 at Croke Park.

Just as in last year's All-Ireland final, the Tribesmen had the lead at the interval but were unable to withstand a powerful second-half showing from Brian Cody's side that gradually sapped the fight from them.

Galway were again on top in the first half and should have enjoyed a bigger margin at the break but again the Cats' came surging back to wear them down and pull clear on the scoreboard.

It was the introduction of Richie Hogan for the second period, the forward returning from a hand injury, which was the catalyst for Kilkenny's clinical second-half showing, scoring five points while Jonjo Farrell and TJ Reid also caught the eye, grabbing 1-4 and 0-10 respectively.

Micheal Donoghue's side had no answer to the black and amber onslaught and followed up last year's provincial and All-Ireland finals defeats to the same opponents with another devastating loss.

The trophy was Cody's 15th Leinster crown of his remarkable era and he shows no sign of letting up as his side aim for a scarcely believable 12th All-Ireland since he took charge for the 1999 season.

Kilkenny march on to the semi-finals while Galway must regroup for the quarter-finals and attempt to formulate a plan which might see them hold on next time they lead these illustrious opponents.
