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.
