Taste of victory
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!
