Kiltale emerge winners in Trim showdown Kiltale secured a place in the last four of the SHC when they defeated Killyon 3-12 to 0-18 at Trim this evening. 

This was a well deserved victory although as expected Kiltale had to work hard for the win. 

Apart from two brief spells they were in front all the way with goals from Kevin Ryan, Jack Regan and Stephen Donoghue ensuring that they maintained their 100 per cent record in the championship so far. 

The game never real sparkled into the classic the big crowd who showed up would have hoped for. 

At the interval Kiltale led 2-5 to 0-9 and while Killyon managed to draw level at one stage in the second-half there was no stopping their opponents. 

Ray Massey was in fine scoring form for Killyon helping himself to seven points, three from frees, two from 65s and the other two from play. 

David Raleigh was also sharp in front of the posts for Killyon and he slotted over four points from play while Tom Raleigh and Calvin Ryan got two points apiece.

However Kiltale got the goals and the win.
