- Killorglin AFC 2 – 2 Castlemaine
Monday night football returned to Killorglin with a cracker of a local derby. The game started with a flurry for Castlemaine as they raced into a deserved 2 goal lead as they took the game to the Killorglin lads.
But that all changed in the 2nd half as Killorglin’s Gavin McKenna took hold of the game. He was all over the pitch and try as they could Castlemaine couldn’t get the better of him. 15 minutes into the second half McKenna unleased a thunderbolt of a shot that cannoned off the crossbar – bounced just behind the line and up into the roof of the net. Even the ref got in on the act in congratulating McKenna.
It was the start of the comeback that saw Jack O’Connor get the equaliser from a corner and goalkeeper Kevin Coffey keeping the game level with a couple of high class saves late on.
