SENIOR CO CHAMPIONSHIP. ST KIERANS 0-21 KILCUMMIN 1-13
Having the greater possession and been very competitive in the first half we totally lost our way in the third quarter conceding 11pts without reply. Indeed we retired on level terms 0-8 each at the break after an entertaining first 30 minutes in which no team were ever more than two points ahead. Noel Duggan accounted for four of those points while Shane McSweeney twice, Gary O Leary and Sean O Leary also rowed in with scores. After 15 mins of the second half Kevin McCarthy was introduced for his first game in six months and the improvement was very evident after that. Firstly he found Enda O Sullivan with a long pass and Enda found the bottom corner of the net. There was a much livelier approach from our lads after that as Sean O Leary and Noel Duggan twice converted. Although we never looked like reeling in St Kieran’s Kevin McCarthy's two late points put a better completion on the scoreboard and sent supporters home somewhat happier.
Kilcummin,s next game is a relegation game against Rathmore on Saturday 26th at a time and venue yet to be decided.
