The First round of the u12 Summer league was played at home on Monday evening against Carras (an Amalgamation or Garrymore and Kilmaine). We had a strong squad of 27 players togged out.
Kilmeena layed down a marker in the first quarter by controlling the play and went in at the end of the first quarter leading by 0 - 4 to 0 - 1. While the second quarter was a more even affair in terms of play, but Kilmeena took their chances better in front of goal and lead by 2 - 5 to 0 - 3 at the midway point. We maintained our strength through the remainder of the game winning the last two quarters also. Given the warm evening and a number of injuries throughout the game and it was great to have such strength on the sidelines to bring in. All subs got a run and contributed to a great result. Defensively and midfield were very strong throughout, but we are going to make an extra effort in training in coming weeks to convert a higher percentage of chances in front of goal. Final Score on an enjoyable evening of Summer Football
Kilmeena 2 - 11 0 - 4 Carras
