Kilmeena minors played Carras in a thrilling encounter at Ballyheane tonight Monday 16th of may. The Victor would go through to play Burrishoole next Thursday in the league semi final. There was great crowd gathering as the players came out on to the field. The game started with Kilmeena playing with the aid of a slight breeze. Within a minute Carras had the ball in the net and tagged on two points soon after. Worst followed when Center back Kevin Ryder got injured and had to retire. The boys really dug deep and got themselves back in the game scoring a few well worked points. By half time Kilmeena lead 0 - 09 to 1 - 04. All at the game knew the game was in the balance and the team that took the initiative in the second half would prevail.
The second half started as expected and was a tough dodged first 10 mins, both teams had chances. Carras got the game back to level and looked like they would drive for home. Just then our lads hit a purple patch and hit some excellent scores. This was just a wonderful all team effort with fantastic defending, superb midfield play and clever attacking play. The crowd that were there were treated to a wonderfully spirited display by our lads. Thank you for your support, the lads appreciate it.
SEE YOU ALL IN NEWPORT
