Kilmeena were away to Louisburgh for this their final Under 12 Group C game of 2015. The game itself was a ‘one-sided’ affair; with Kilmeena pretty much dominating from start to finish.
A strong wind, blowing diagonally throughout the match made for a somewhat scrappy contest. Kilmeena got on the scoreboard first, with the opening point coming from Daniel O’Malley (Captain). Ben Lennon added another to make it 2 points to no score at the end of the first quarter.
Aided (somewhat) by the diagonal wind, Kilmeena added 4 more points to their tally in the second quarter. For Louisburgh, it was proving a difficult evening; for although they did create a few chances, they failed to convert. Their efforts were continuously thwarted by a combination of Milo McManus - who was having a great game for Kilmeena at half-back -and Brian Durkan; who’s blocking and fetching nullified Louisburgh’s attack. The Kilmeena defensive effort, including subs Rory Nolan and Sean Gallagher can be very satisfied with their evenings work.
Colin Hastings came on in the third quarter and bagged Kilmeena’s first goal. This was followed shortly afterwards by a goal from Ben Lennon. At the other end, Louisburgh’s efforts were finally rewarded with a point.
The final quarter saw Ciaran Kilcoyne rattle the net for Kilmeena’s third goal.
In the end, this was another facile victory for Kilmeena.
The Under 12 coaches & management look forward to seeing the boys continue their sporting progress through the Under 11 and Under 13 grades in the coming months.
Well done to all the lads for their efforts and commitment over the past 4 months.
