- Camp 2 – 1 Killorglin AFC
Only 1 game this weekend for Killorglin senior set up as both the youths and the B team games were called off. The A’s were away to Camp sunday afternoon. Compliments must go to Camp on the great work done on their pitch as its in great shape. As for the game, it was a fairly even contest mostly for the first half with Killorglin’s Aiden O’Sullivan coming closest for the visitors but to no avail. 0-0 at half time – the 2nd half opened up a bit more and there was a few more chances created with both sides coming close – Tony Lyons pulling off a couple of great saves for Killorglin. You could see both sides wanted this game and there was no holding back as the tackles flew in. The introduction of Ryan Keane in 60th minute was to prove fruitful as 5 minutes later Shane O’Connor put a great ball in across goals from a free and Keano met it perfectly with a header to the corner of the net. Camp, to be fair, reacted well to the goal and started to press Killorglin and were rewarded with a goal with 15 minutes to go. A 1-1 draw seemed to be on the cards with time nearly up and would probably been a fair result but Camp pressing to the last minute had a cross from the right met at the back post, Lyons seemed to have smothered it on the line but the referee pointed to the spot. A harsh result on the away team but I suppose we are a few years away from goaline technology yet. Killorglin will have to take it on the chin. All credit to Camp with a great fight back in a game where 3 points will be a big help in what is a very tough division.
