On sunday last Kilmeena travelled to Kilfian to take on the home team in their search for two more league points.
Kilmeena started the game well and dominated possession early on. The home team were finding it very hard to gain any possession with the Kilmeena lads dominating the midfield sector and the Kilmeena defence totally on top.
An early Kilmeena goal rocked the home team, and it was all one way traffic. Kilfian gradually resorted to massed defence, which resulted in Kilmeena finding it hard to break them down.
However, Kilmeena went in at half time completely in the ascendancy. the half time score
Kilfian 0 - 0 Kilmeena 2 - 9
A couple of early points in the second half opened up the gap still further, and eventually the home team got on the score sheet. Kilmeena then started to get very sloppy in their play both in defence and attack. Two needless goals were conceded due to poor defensive work, and undisciplined shot selection at the other end was compromising some fine football. In the end the game meandered on to a comprehensive win for the Kilmeena boys.
kilmeena remain top of the table, but it's very tight with just one point seperating the top 4 teams.
