On Wednesday evening, last week, with home advantage, our Junior B footballers after a promising first half, went under disappointingly, to Kilshannig, in the Division 2 League, on the above score.  At the end of the first half, they were just two points adrift, 0-5 to 1-4 and playing well, Kilshannig’s goal having come against the run of play in the twenty-fifth minute.

After the resumption of play, Kildorrery reduced their deficit inside six minutes, but Kilshannig replied with a goal a minute later.  Kildorrery’s next point in the twelfth minute of the half proved to be their last score of the game. However, a missed penalty chance at the end of the third quarter heralded the end of the road, when, if converted would have left them just a single point in arrears.  From here on in it was all Kilshannig and try as they would, Kildorrery couldn’t contain them and they went on to add 3-4 to their tally and run out easy winners.

Team and scorers:  Dave Roche, Ciaran O’Connor, Michael Lillis, Anthony Palmer, Jason Walsh, Jerry McCarthy, Fintan Daly, Tiernan Condon, Liam O’Keeffe 0-3, James Fox 0-3 (0-1f),  Shane Walsh, James Magnier, Billy Hedigan, Will Coffey 0-1, John Hennessy Subs.

Last Friday evening, again at the home venue, our Intermediate hurlers showed a good improvement on their previous game against Mayfield, in the Division 3 league, when with a great second half effort they defeated Aghabullogue in the same competition.  Having trailed 1-12 to 1-13 at the break, they added nine points to their tally in the second half , while Aghabullogue could only manage four.
