KIL­MACANOGUE GAA B team put in a great dis­play in a high scor­ing game held in Fitzsim­mons Park last Thurs­day which was a plea­sure to watch.

This game fin­ished up 5-05 to 3-04 to Kil­macanogue who utilised the bench with a big panel avail­able on the night even though they were short the silky skills and guile of Andrew “Hooper” Fitzsim­mons.

How­ever, the re­turn to ac­tion of Andrew Molloy was a huge boost to the club (that's ac­cord­ing to Andrew) and he was out­stand­ing on the night along with the O’Cal­laghan broth­ers, Barry Fitz­patrick and Gareth Kelly.

The Kil­macanogue En­niskerry U16s played St. Kevin's in Hol­ly­wood on Tues­day night.

St Kevin's started strong and were up by 7 points at half time.

How­ever, they did not ac­count for the strong team spirit of the away side and with an ex­cel­lent pass­ing game been played, the lead was cut to two points with 15 min­utes re­main­ing.

The turn­ing point of the game was a su­perb penalty save made by Ian Kir­win and with mo­men­tum now firmly with Kil­macanogue En­niskerry, they drew level with five min­utes re­main­ing.

With the sides ex­chang­ing points right up to the fi­nal minute up stepped Rhys Cope to drive over the win­ning point.

This was an out­stand­ing sec­ond half per­for­mance by ev­ery­one on the night.

Scores on the night were Sam O'Cal­laghan, Alan Acres, Wil­liam Coogan and Rhys Cope. With two games re­main­ing against Carnew and Barn­dar­rig a league semi-fi­nal spot now looks pos­si­ble. Fi­nal score; Kil­macanogue 3-8, St. Kevin's 1-13.
