Kilmeena U-12 boys played their third game of the league at home to Moy Davitts on Monday evening the 23rd of May. Moy Davitts travelled with a panel of 22 players which allowed for two teams to be selected. The first game was played with 13 aside on the main pitch while the second game was played in the adjoining training pitch. Kilmeena got off to the better start by winning the first quarter by 1 - 02 to 1 - 00. However, Moy Davitts hit their purple patch in the second quarter and scored 2 - 02 to 0 - 01 leaving the half time score of 1 - 03 to 3 - 02 in favour of the visitors. The Kilmeena boys had lots of possession in the third quarter but failed to convert their dominance into scores on the board.
