KILMEEN PROVE TOO STRONG.

Last Saturday night in Blarney we kicked off our football championship when we came up against Kilmeen from the west Cork region but unfortunately on the night we met a team that were in top form and played some fast open football that we had no answer for.

We were also without the services of six regulars which made this a mountain to climb. Kilmeen started on the front foot and had three early points before Eoin McHugh had our first score from a free after a foul on Vince, we were finding it hard to break down a well drilled Kilmeen Defence and they were breaking fast down field which resulted in a few more points to give them a comfortable lead at half time 0-9 to 0-1.

The second half started off the with Kilmeen goaling after 30 seconds and they followed this with a second goal a few minutes later and this put the game out of sight for us, trailing 2-9 to 0-1 we had our best spell of the game when we had three points in a row from Vincent Burke, Kenneth Barry and another free from Eoin McHugh after Paul Burke was fouled. Kilmeen added a few of their own to stretch the lead again and we had our last score when Rob McHugh made a long run and pointed from thirty yards, the last few minutes were played out with Kilmeen adding two more points to run out comfortable winners in the end by 2-15 to 0-5.

We now go into round two which will be played Saturday week with opponents and venue to be decided and hopefully we’ll have a full strength squad available so we can put in a strong performance and get back to winning ways in this years football championship.

Team: Dylan O’Callaghan, Richard Burke, Padraig Fitzgerald, James Hayes, Micheal Burke, Eoin O’Regan, Robert McHugh(0-1), Sean lynch, Eoin McHugh(0-2), Vincent Burke(0-1), Brian O’Reilly, Sean Cronin, Paul Burke, Niall Barry, Kenneth Barry Barry(0-1), sub Brian Sheedy for Eoin O’Regan (inj 15mins).
