Hob­son hero­ics steal a late vic­tory for Kil­te­gan

Bray People - - SPORT -


JOHN STONES can hardly be too happy with the start up day in his Win­ter Foot­ball League. Of the four match pro­gramme he got only one match played.

The match be­tween Val­ley­mount and Bless­ing­ton could not be played as Val­ley­mount were in­volved in a Di­vi­sion 2 rel­e­ga­tion play off.

Matches be­tween Dunlavin and Lacken and Kil­bride and Hol­ly­wood were both post­poned be­cause of fam­ily berieve­ments.

How­ever this match at Kil­te­gan went ahead de­spite clash­ing with an im­por­tant hurl­ing meet­ing in the vil­lage. This was a one-sided match in the first half with the home side lead­ing by 0-8 to 0-2 at half time.

Early in the sec­ond half Strat­ford-Grangecon won a penalty when Mat­tie was down and Mikie Car­roll gave Ned Doyle no chance with a well taken spot kick.

That score lifted the Slaneysiders and they went on to level the scores late in the game. In the clos­ing min­utes Dar­ren Hob­son cut through the Strat­ford de­fence, played a one-two with Niall Fo­ley be­fore plant­ing the ball in the net for the win­ner.

Scor­ers - Kil­te­gan - Dar­ren Hob­son 1-2; Shane Len­non and Johnny Boy Keogh 0-3 each Stephen Far­rell 0-2; Dar­ren Nolan and Dan Kear­ney 0-1 each.

Strat­ford - Mikie Car­roll 1-4; Keith Daly 02; Alan Nor­ton, James Bar­rett and Matt Man­ley 0-1 each;
