- Killorglin AFC 1 – 7 Listowel Celtic
One game this week in the senior section, the B team were at home to Listowel Celtic on Sunday morning but the news was not good.The game started ok with neither team making much impact until about the 20th minute when Listowel won a free just outside the Killorglin area. From the cross they scored the first goal from an unchallenged header. They went on to get a 2nd in similar fashion from a corner and got a third just before half time.
Not looking good at half time but to be fair to Killorglin they kept the heads up and had 2 or 3 good chances early in the 2nd half with Shane Riordan and Jacko foley both going close before Killorglin got their reward. They got an indirect free inside the Listowel area and with a clever touch from Kieran “Sheazo” O’Shea rolled the ball on for Jacko Breen to tuck it away. That was as good as it got for Killorglin after that as a solid penalty claim by Shane Riordan was dismissed the resulting play led to a fourth from Listowel. And that was the end of the game as a contest. To be fair, the lads pushed on but to no avail. The game finished 7-1 to the visitors. Even Listowel will admit Killorglin didn’t deserve that scoreline but no excuses. There is some defensive homework to do. Hard to pick a MOTM with a scoreline like that, but credit to Jacko Breen who did get the goal and kept trying the whole game. Things need to improve – lets hope it starts next week.
