Taste of victory

Bray People - - News -

In a tight first half, Kil­mac trailed 05-04 at the break.

The turn­ing point came early in the 2nd half when Carnew were awarded a penalty but Aaron Brady stood big and saved and very soon af­ter, Dean O’Neill knocked in a goal for Kil­mac.

They held this lead for the rest of the sec­ond half and showed great com­po­sure throughtout the en­tire game but right at the death, Aaron Brady tipped a goal bound shot over the bar which would have lev­elled the game.

The man of the match award went to the team cap­tain Jack Co­nan but in truth all 15 play­ers and subs were in con­tention for this award. Well done lads on what was a bril­liant dis­play and a spe­cial men­tion also to the man­agers Sean Creavin, Cor­mac Doyle and An­drew Mol­loy.

Ju­ve­nile chair­man Pat Mitchell pre­sented the cup to Jack Co­nan and re­called that great man Joe Mol­loy who sowed the roots for this suc­cess back at U-12 level and re­flected that no doubt he was looking down on pro­ceed­ings with great pride, a thought echoed by all present.

Well done lads on a great victory and best of luck in the up com­ing cham­pi­onship. On Thurs­day night, the ju­nior A team took on En­niskerry in a ju­nior A cham­pi­onship match in Round­wood and this was one off the most ex­cit­ing matches of the year so far which had ev­ery spec­ta­tor on the edge of their seats. It was level for most of the match as no team looked like run­ning away with the game and so it turned out to be a draw 2-8 to 1-11. This was an hon­est game of foot­ball a great re­fec­tion on both teams.

Wel­come back to the Burke Fam­ily who must have landed at Dublin air­port, and went straight to Fitzsim­mon Park to get in on the action. Great to have you back is the mes­sage from all at the club!

Fi­nally, be­lated 21st birth­day wishes to Thomas Red­den from all at Kil­macanogue GAA Club, good man “Tommy Boy” is the mes­sage re­layed!
