- Killorglin AFC B 3 – 2 CG Killarney
Killorglin B team were due to play CG Killarney away on Sat. night but the game had to be switched to Killorglin all weather. These 2 teams had already played out a thrilling 3-3 draw a couple of weeks ago so goals were on the card. CG started well and were 1-0 up after 5 minutes as a high ball with a strong wind caught the Killorglin defence and Kian O’Mahony finished it off. CG should of at least got a 2nd as they had some great pressure from corners but it was Killorglin that pulled one back 5 minutes before the break when a Sean Cozzy Costeloe corner was met by the head of Stuart Delaney.
1-1 at the break. Killorglin should have had the advantage in the 2nd half but it was CG that again took the lead when some sloppy defending left in Dave McSweeney to put CG 2-1 up. Killorglin started to get a hold of the ball and with about 20 minutes left Shane Riordan made a great run and cross that Aiden” Nat “O’Sullivan finished for his first goal of the campaign. With about 5 minutes left Killorglin took the lead when substitute Ryan Riordan put a great ball through to Darren Riordan who cooly slotted it away. CG were unlucky not to get an equaliser in the last minute of the game when from a corner had 2 or 3 shots blocked in front of goal. The game finished 3-2 to Killorglin, a good match played in great spirit with CG feeling unlucky not to come away with something.
Some great performances all round on the night with a real team effort but M.O.T.M. went to Darren Riordan who worked tirelessly all night and the winning goal to add.
Next weeks fixtures have the U-17’s at home to Asdee Rovers on Sat 25th @ 3pm. Also the B Team are away to Na Fianna at 2:30 on Sun 26th but that might be changed so keep an eye on it.
