Another League Final for KBC

Mixed emotions in the club this week when our Grade 3, Mix B triumphed in their semi final against Ballinabranna and on the same night our Grade 5 Mix lost their final to a strong side from Mullingar.

We will start with Catherine’s Grade 5 Mix who were unlucky to lose to Mullingar. In this close final with both teams exchanging blows early on, going into the Mix games Mullingar had the edge after winning three out of the first five games. KBC then brought the match back to 3-3 but then Mullingar won the seventh game putting them 4-3 ahead, unluckily for the Kilcullen team they also managed to win the match. Even with fourth Mix to play Mullingar had done enough as they had superior set difference. Hard luck but well done to captain Catherine and her team, Grace, Kath, Pam, Kasi, Fintan, Mike and Oisin but like I always say getting to a Final is the main thing, winning is only the bonus!

On a brighter note KBC’s Grade 3, Mix B captained by Caroline made it to the final after beating Ballinabranna in a fantastic semi final. KBC started out at a fast pace, taking no prisoners, they won their first four games giving themselves a massive advantage going into the Mix games. Ballinabranna took the first Mix but KBC quickly snuffed out any chance of a Ballinabranna comeback and comfortably won the second Mix and won the match 5-1. Well done Caroline, Chelsey, Bernie, Catherine, Owen, Mick, Vincent and super sub John “the Fox” Mullen. Good luck to the gang in the final.
