'Whites and Kilmacow chase the last Kilkenny minor hurling title of the season

Following the hectic action in Sunday’s two minor hurling finals in UPMC Nowlan Park, the last of the county deciders at this level will be played this weekend.
The Roinn A and B finals produced big wins in terms of significance for Dicksboro (A), and Young Irelands (Gowran) and this Sunday the Roinn C decider will be played at Pairc Sheamuis Stiophan (1.30pm).
Blacks and Whites play Kilmacow in a tie that fell victim to the weather last weekend.
From the outset many observers had these two sides as the ones to watch in this grade.
Kilmacow scored a good win in the first round over John Lockes (Callan). Early goals did the damage here.
In the all south semi-final it was a high octane affair between Kilmacow and Mullinavat.
The scoring was high with the standard of play more akin to a Roinn A clash.
James Walsh, Tom Butler and Liam Lacey were to the fore as Kilmacow eventually outlasted their neighbours by 3-14 to 2-12.
Blacks and Whites first foray into championship hurling saw them venture south and a late scoring burst from Senan Doyle and Sam Byrne was enough to help them to a 1-16 to 2-7 win.
Their semi-final win was something of a one-sided affair. They simply had too much class for a young Ballyhale Shamrocks.
There will be a number of county players in action for both sides, so another high class affair is expected.
