O’Sul­li­van drives Kil­mac to vic­tory

Irish Examiner - County - - Sport -

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.
