U-13 DIVISION 1
Mastergeeha FC 3 – 4 Iveragh FC
Our other team welcomed Iveragh F.C. to Kilbrean Park, and came off on the wrong size of a 4-3 scoreline. In a close encounter, Iveragh scored first before Matthew Kennedy equalized for us. Iveragh converted their chances well going 3-1 ahead and to be fair to our boys, they worked hard getting it back to level scores. While going for the win, conceded right at the death in debatable circumstances. It was a tough game where the boys were rusty after the Christmas break.
Scorers: Matthew Kennedy & Sean McAulliffe
U-17 DIVISION 1
Killorglin AFC 3 - 4 Mastergeeha FC
In this close game, our U-17’s got the deserved three points away on Saturday afternoon. The boys started well and took the lead when Kevin Bowler crossed for Gearoid Mulvihill to slot home. After this Mastergeeha played the better and created some good chances and deservedly took the lead when Cian Foley scored following a Brendan O’Leary corner. Just before the break Mastergeeha went two up; Cian Foley scored again following some good work by the Mastergeeha midfield. In the second half the home side pulled a goal back early on and the in the 50th minute scored the equaliser from the penalty spot. On the 75th minute, Mastergeeha pushed forward and got the winner when Cian Murphy converted from the penalty spot after Roiri O’Connor was fouled. All played well.
Cian Foley, Gearoid Mulvihill & Cian Murphy
Mastergeeha FC 1 - 0 Mainebank FC
Our senior team welcomed Mainebank FC to Kilbrean Park for our first match of the year where we took the 3 points to continue our current run of form.
From the off, this was a competitive game where both sides held possession well and created a number of chances throughout. The only goal of the game came mid-way through the first half from a set piece, Gearoid Kerins stood over the ball and send it curling into the top corner where Mainebank’s keeper didn’t have a chance. Overall, Mastergeeha deserved the win on the day with all players winning there 1 on 1 battles and working hard for each other in claiming a valuable 3 points.
Scorers: Gearoid Kerins.
