- Killorglin AFC 7 – 0 Balloonagh
Only 1 senior game this weekend – the B team were at home to Balloonagh in the all weather on sunday at 3:30. With the A’s having no game, the B team had a strong squad to pick from and 3 points were a must. Killorglin started the game brightly with some great passing and movement with everyone looking for the ball. Vinnie and Cozzy using the wings were able to stretch the opposition and before long we were 1-0 up. Some lovely movement between Shane Riordan and Kevin O’Brien up front, saw Shane chipping the keeper. Jamie O’Sullivan made it 2-0 with a fantastic strike from about 25 yards out (I know – we couldn’t believe it either). And just before the break, Kevin O’Brien FINALLY got that goal we knew was in him. 3-0 at the half time break.
With 4 more goals (Cozzy 2, Shane 1 and the ‘back from injury’ NAT with 1, it finished off a solid performance to win 7-0. Balloonagh didn’t help their cause by having 2 sent off in the 2nd half but take nothing away from the lads – great performances all round (Chris O’Connor with a couple of great stops in goal, and also Shane Riordan up front who ran tirelessly for the 90 mins. But M.O.T.M. had to go Cozzy with some great passing and 2 goals, although substitute Niall O’Shea almost had the moment of the match with a 70 yard run that nearly ended in a goal – probably just as well!!
The team: Chris O’Connor, Sheazo, Stuart Delaney (capt.), Jamie O’Sullivan, Jacko Breen, Cozzy, DiCanio, Brendy Breen, Vinnie West, Shane Riordan and Kevin O’Brien. Subs: Jed Teahan, Nat, Niall O’Shea, Alan O’Dwyer….Oh and MITCH.
Finally I would just like to take this chance again to wish the U-13s the best of luck in their Qtr. final and also to take this chance to wish the Gunners the best of luck in their semi. I know ye are all behind them. (lol) The U-17’s are playing the next 2 monday evenings in the all weather at 7pm and the senior A’s are in the KDL next Sat. evening (15th) at 5:30.
