Cats are Kings of New York
Kilkenny are champions of the inaugural New York Hurling Classic after racking up a comprehensive 24-point win over Limerick at Citi Field in Queens, New York, yesterday.
The four-team, three-game tournament features a modified game of hurling called Super 11s – which is played on a soccer pitch by teams of 11 players and incorporates similar rules to hockey and basketball like penalty corners and shot clocks.
Teams can only score goals in Super 11s and more points are awarded if a goal is scored from long range.
Earlier in the day, the Cats demolished Tipperary with a ruthless 50-point drubbing, while Limerick eased to a 32-point win over Leinster champions Wexford in the first game of the afternoon.
