- St Brendans Park 4 – 3 Killorglin AFC
The A-team were in action in the Munster Junior Cup against St. Brendans Park. Park are a top side and Killorglin needed an improved performance from the game last Sunday. And that’s exactly what they gave. Even though they came out with a 4-3 loss, Killorglin can take a lot of positives from this game. We took the lead with a headed goal from Karl “Fla” Falvey, but let Park back in straight away. Then took the lead through a brilliant individual effort from Johnny Carey, only to give Park a soft penalty which they converted to make it 3-2. But Carey made another great run and was brought down in the box and converted the spot kick to make it 3-3 at the half. A mainly uneventful second half, with both sides having chances, Tony Lyons making a couple of solid saves. Then Dave Coffey with a great run, intercepted the ball and was in one and one on the keeper only for being pulled back by the defender who was sent off. With time nearly up, Park latched on to a loose ball and scored what proved to be the winner. You would have fancied Killorglin in extra time with the extra man but it wasn’t to be. Still a lot of positives to take from the game with some great individual performances and some new players just getting settled in – it’s looking much better. Johnny Carey M.O.T.M.
