Results – Sunday 10th November
Senior – Premier A
- Killarney Athletic 5 – 1 Killorglin AFC
The A’s were away to Killarney Athletic on Sunday morning, and after a great start to the game took the lead with a fantastic goal from David Coffey. Unfortunately that was as good as it got as the home team started to get the upper hand and by half time were 3-1 up. The game finished 5-1 to Athletic so the A’s still with work to do to get up to speed with the Premier A division.
Senior – Division 1B
- Skelliga FC 3 – 1 Killorglin AFC
The B team were also away on Sunday morning to the newly formed Skelliga FC. Skelliga are very strong this year and will be hoping to win Division 1B so it was always going to be a tough ask for Killorglin. But the game was closely matched for about 20 minutes until Skelliga made the breakthrough with a goal that could have easily been pulled back for offside. But to be fair to the lads they kept plugging away and were rewarded with an equaliser just before half time. A corner from Pa Knightly was swung in, Shane Riordan with the nod back and Kevin O’Brien with a fantastic strike on the volley to finish it off. So Killorglin went in at half time in good form.
The second half was nip and tuck until about the 65th minute when, from a Skelliga corner, Brendy Breen was adjudged to have leaned in and handled the ball. It was a harsh decision and Skelliga went 2-1 up from the spot. Killorglin heads seemed to drop a bit after that and with a great move from Skelliga they got a 3rd. Killorglin kept going and had a few chances with Shane Riordan going very close towards the end but with no luck. Still a lot of positives to take from the game with good performances from Dan Horgan and Kevin O’Brien (M.O.T.M.) back in the team. There will be easier games ahead for the B’s with 4 out of the 5 games played having been against the top 3 teams in the division.
