- Killorglin AFC 6 – 0 Ballyheigue
The senior B-Team were in action on Sunday at home to Ballyheigue and were in desperate need of a big result after some poor performances of late – and thats exactly what they gave. With some key players out including captain Stuart Delaney, Brendy Breen and DiCanio through injury, there needed to be a bit of a revamp and the Kelliher brothers Mike and Edwin stepped up to the task. The game was evenly enough matched until a couple of minutes to half time when young Shane Riordan struck on a loose ball outside the box and put the home team 1-0 up going in to the break.
This gave the home team a bit of confidence and they started to get a hold on the game and from a corner Shane Riordan pressed the Keeper and the ball dropped behind the line (we’ll give him that one for effort) Killorglin took the foot off the pedal after that and left B’heigue into the game but with a great run from Jamie O’Sullivan rounding 2 players he slotted away Killorglins 3rd. Vinnie West on for Jacko Foley with a good run up the right wing struck for the 4th. Then the “goal of the game” with a Lionel Messi like run from the half way line saw Pa Knightly coolly slot away the 5th. Late sub Ryan O’Riordan also put away a great strike to make it 6-0. A massive performance with every man on the pitch giving 100% and hopefully will give us the confidence for the rest of the season. M.O.T.M. had to be Edwin Kelliher in as sweeper. Nice to see him back in action. Team was Chris O’Connor, Dan Hogan, Edwin Kells, Damien Mc(capt.), Jacko Breen, Mike Kells, Pa Knightly, Jamie O’Sullivan, Shane Riordan, Kevin O’Brien and Jacko Foley. Subs Vinnie West, Mitch & Ryan Riordan.
