Senior Action Over the Weekend
The Killorglin C team got their league campaign underway Sunday morning at home to Ballymac. With a only a week or so to get organised it was going to be a tall order but to be fair to Killorglin they showed fantastic spirit and at 1-0 down at half time were holding their own. 8 minutes into the 2nd half and Killorglin were 2-0 down. Legs were getting tired by now with a lot of the lads playing their first game in a while. It finished 4-0 to Ballymac with Killorglin missing a penalty at the end of the game. So a tough start but Killorglin can take a lot of positives from the game so hopefully better to come.
Our A’s were in action Sunday afternoon in the 2nd round of the FAI Junior cup at home to Bunratty. This was the A’s first competitive game of the season. To be fair the first half hour could only be called the “Dave Coffey show”…with goals in the 1st, 15th, 20th and 29th minutes and also won a penalty in the 2nd minute which was missed(sorry Paddy) the tie was all but over. The Killorglin strike force of Dave Coffey and Dylan O’Sullivan were on fire on the day and Dylan got his own hat-trick with some fine finishing. The A team had 3 competitive debutants with the Clifford brothers Jamie and Eoin and Anthony Abogunrin. Eoin Clifford also scoring twice to put the icing on a fine team display. The tie finished 9-2 but credit to the Bunratty side the game was played in great spirit.
