This was a victory built on hard work and collective pressure on the Achill men. Time and again this pressure yielded up a lot of possession for kilmeena.
A good solid first 20 mins saw Kilmeena in front with 2 - 3 on the score-board and the Islanders failing to register a score. Achill got a grip on the game towards the end of the half to send over 3 unanswered points
The second half saw Kilmeena storm ahead again with 3 points before Achill converted a penalty. However a fine Kilmeena move saw Paul Moran blast to the net to put Kilmeena in driving seat going into the last ten mins. Achill scored a consolation goal but Kilmeena had done enough to come away with a well deserved victory
This was a fine display in tough conditions the work rate was outstanding all over the pitch and every player played a critical part in this solid victory
