Results – Sunday 8th December
- Killorglin AFC 2 – 1 Killarney Athletic
The A team were in action on Sunday to Killarney Athletic who beat us 5-1 in the reverse fixture a couple of weeks ago. So it was nice to turn it around even though our boys gave Athletic the dream start when Sheazo was (adjudged harshly) to have brought down the opponent in the box. Athletic 1-0 up after 3 minutes, but the lads kept the heads and midway through the half, captain fantastic “Fla” in his new midfield role connected sweetly on the half volley on a loose ball and levelled the game.
1-1 at half time and Killorglin looked comfortable in the 2nd half without creating too much. But from a corner Paul Patrick nodded down and “Keano” struck and put the home team 2-1 up. Athletic then had a man sent off and it looked like Killorglin would finish off the game, but to be fair to Athletic they kept the pressure on and only for some good goalkeeping and a last minute header off the line from sub Lee Carey it could have ended in a draw. Killorglin deserved the win though and its 3 points that were vital if they are going to get back on track. A great result for Chucks and Jerry Kells and some good performances especially from M.O.T.M. Jason Foley back in goals.
