KAN­TURK played their first home game at Bal­ly­hass Lakes on Sun­day morn­ing.

Jack Fin­negan scored early on which set­tled the game down for Kan­turk. Mal­low Utd de­fended a lot af­ter this un­til Don­nacha O’Leary found the net half way through the first half.

Mal­low had chances but great de­fend­ing from Dy­lan Mor­ley, Marc Wat­son and Eoin O’Ke­effe kept them out. Don­nacha O’Leary scored again, mak­ing it 3-0 at half time.

Both teams started strong in the sec­ond half but great work in mid field from Ro­nan Kiely and Oisin Twomey kept most of the play in the Mal­low Utd half. Jack Fin­negan scored 3 fan­tas­tic goals in a row to give Kan­turk a 6-0 lead.

Mathew O’Gorman added an­other, mak­ing it 7-0. Mal­low Utd did get 2 goals against the run of play. How­ever, Jack Fin­negan got one last goal for a fi­nal score of 8 -2 .

A great per­for­mance from all play­ers on the day. Best for Kan­turk were Jack Fin­negan, Dy­lan Mor­ley.

Thank you to Bal­ly­hass Lakes for the use of their pitch.

It was hon­ours even when Kan­turk made the trip to Green­wood in the league last Satur­day.

Both teams came into the game un­de­feated, Kan­turk win­ning their first 2.

Play­ing with a strong breeze Kan­turk dom­i­nated the first half and were un­lucky not to be more ahead af­ter Martin O’Rior­dan scored from a cor­ner mid­way through the first half.

Green­wood came out and pushed hard for a goal in the sec­ond half and were re­warded with the equaliser af­ter an hour.

Both teams came close to get­ting the win­ner but all in all a draw was a fair re­sult on a day when Kan­turk pro­duced an out­stand­ing per­for­mance.

An ex­cel­lent away point from Kan­turk in what was a dif­fi­cult game.

Best for Kan­turk were Damien Finn, Don O’Ma­hony and De­nis Finn.

Thanks to But­te­vant for trav­el­ling to Bal­ly­hass for a very en­joy­able non-com­pet­i­tive game.
