O’Sullivan drives Kilmac to victory
turned in by the marauding Maurice Sexton.
Two points quickly followed from Josh O’Donovan meaning we had a different closing half picture to the one expected with the losers trailing by just a goal and a point at halftime.
Despite having to start without two key players Kilmac showed great resilience on more than one occasion during this game where they restarted with Richie O’Sullivan kicking a much needed point.
Further points were then exchanged before the losers scored a second major.
Josh O’Donovan lived up to his goal scoring reputation when he netted and with 16 minutes remaining it was down to a two-point game.
Now Kilbrittain, who also had two enforced changes from the start, had their followers on their feet but failed to deliver a score in the final quarter.
During this period Richie O’Sullivan along with the hard working Ger O’Donovan tacked on the scores that took Kilmac out of danger and into the history books.
