St. Pat’s heap league mis­ery on Kil­te­gan

Bray People - - SPORT -


KIL­TE­GAN'S trail of mis­ery in Div I con­tin­ued when they paid their first visit to Dun­bur Park this year to take on St. Patrick's on Fri­day evening.

While they had their two county play­ers, Rory Finn and Seanie Fur­long, back for the first time this year it was not enough to stop the rot.

Af­ter St Pat's woe­ful dis­play in Balt­in­glass last time out there was al­ways go­ing to be a back­lash and Kil­te­gan took the full force of that.

The St. Pat's trainer Gavin Wynne must have had mixed feel­ings as he ap­proached this match.

He just had to mo­ti­vate his new charges and get them mo­tor­ing again af­ter that one slip up but at the same time he must have re­gret­ted that it was his own club that was on the re­ceiv­ing end.

The Town side were back to near full strength for this match and hit the ground run­ning.

Early goals by Brian Coen, Paudge McWal­ter and Jonathan De­lahunt sent them on their way and by half time they were leading by 3-6 to 2-3.

Seanie Fur­long had Kil­te­gan's first goal but he had re­ceived an eye in­jury by the time his side won a penalty and was un­able to take the kick. How­ever, the other county player, Rory Finn, took over and blasted to the back of Davey Byrne's net. Kil­te­gan did not have a sub­sti­tute so Seanie had to con­tinue.

It told in the sec­ond half and all Kil­te­gan man­aged to add to their to­tal was two more points.

So, Gavin Wynne got a much im­proved dis­play from his side, he got the re­sult he needed and also man­aged to re­pair a score dif­fer­ence that was badly dam­aged on their visit Slaney­side.

Scor­ers - St Patrick's - Brain Coan 1-7; Paul Earls 1-3; Paudge McWal­ter 1-0; Jonathan De­lahunt 1-0; Stephen Duffy 0-2; Daragh O'Sulli- van 0-2; and Shay Doyle 0-1.
